Several mini games appear in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 4. Most notable are hacking and lock picking. You can also find a text based minigame with the name "Reign of Grelok" at the Hubrics Comics building.


Main article: Hacking

The Hacking mini game is played in order to hack into a terminal. In this mini-game, there is a list of passwords to choose from, and after a choice is made, feedback will be given on how many letters are shared between the picked option and the correct answer, it will be much like the board game "Mastermind". You get four tries to find the current password. You have the chance to remove dud passwords and to replenish your amount of tries by selecting sets of brackets, i.e. < >, { } and [ ].

In the lock picking mini game, the player character is trying to open a locked item such as an ammo box, safe, door or some other locked item. They have a screwdriver, which is a weightless item that is not even listed in the inventory, and bobby pins that can be collected through out the journey. Every time a pick a lock attempt fails by applying too much tension to the lock one bobby pin will be broken/lost and it will require another bobby pin to try again.
