The Strip door, key required?!? Edit

I have run into a...problem. I have gotten to the point where Caesar wants me to kill Mr. House. I blew up the generators in the bunker, I returned to Caesar he tells me to go to the New Vegas strip to kill Mr. House. When I go to the strip's north gate, I am met by 5 non-hostile Securitrons, who have nothing to say, and when I try to enter the strip, it says I need a key. Am I the only one to experience this?

you need a passport
No, you don't need a passport. But nice try. It's a bug caused by applying a certain patch after gaining access to the Strip. The solution on anything but the PC is to kill a bot and take its key; the solution on the PC is to use the console to unlock the door. --Kris User Hola 22:07, November 15, 2010 (UTC)

I also have this problem. I actually boxed up my game and listed it on Amazon (collectors edition and in perfect condition and wanted my money back, lol) after this happened. Now that I see there is a way around this I might get it back out and keep it :D So I just need to kill one of the securitrons at the gate and take his key?

I had the same issue. You can also use the monorail from mccarren if your reputation with ncr is high enough, or if you just kill them all. Once you get back into the strip the need for the key disappears and you can come and go as you please.

stuck at the fort? Edit

I have a problem. When i get to the fort, i get my weapons taken off me as usual and i am told i will not have any problems. But when i begin to go up the hill, if i go near to any dogs everyone in the camp starts to attack me and i die very quickly. I have tried every route possible but i cant get into caesars' tent without going near any dogs, therefore i am always being attacked and i fail the quest everytime i try. i want to know why this happens to me and if there is any way that i can stop it happening?? ( i have Rex as a companion... i thought that may be a cause but i dont know)

I'm having the same problem. so if someone could answer, it would be nice. I even tried using stealth boys, but I still get detected sometimes - I cheated on the console to kill caesar and all hostiles, but then I was stuck on the island, the guy who transported me there simply saying I needed to talk to caesar. (I'd also prefer not to cheat) I couldn't find the box where my equipment was taken either, though I did find the key from the guy who took it. Unfortunately I have no weapons to speak of either. the only other save I have is 24 freaking hours behind this one. 24 hours in game time!!! that's about three days worth of work for me. There doesn't seem to be a way to talk to caesar, as soon as I enter the tent everyone is hostile. (outside the tent I was able to sneak around with stealth boys... until they ran out.) I have 2 companions with me, Ed E and Arcade. Arcade was the whole reason I went there in the first place, to trigger his dialogue for points so I could do his quest. 19:36, July 2, 2011 (UTC)

You must send Boone HOME. Then u can enter with no problem.


i have just received the mark of caesar from vulpes and when i go to cottonwood cove they all attck me even though my reputation is neutral can someone tell me how to get my reputation up PLEASE

Note: Are you wearing faction armour? You may want to sneak past any guards in Cottonwood Cove and get directly to the ferryman. This will get you inside the fort.

note: if your rep with ncr is good the legion will be hostile. even if your rep with ncr is neutral, but you've done anything helpful for them after receiving the mark of caesar the legion will be hostile. i got past this problem by using the console command to remove myself from all factions: <player.removefromallfactions> `ac`

What happens if benny survives? Edit

Is he ever encountered again if you give him a stealth boy and let him escape?

Answer: No. As soon as he equips the stealth boy the entire camp will be hostile to you. DMZ Sniper 21:45, November 11, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, but what happens if benny survives? Is he ever encountered again if you give him a stealth boy and let him escape? Daniel Benoy 20:07, November 19, 2010 (UTC)

  • Unless you kill Caesar and the guards, Benny can not escape. They will kill him. But to more directly answer your question, he tells you he is leaving the area and you won't see him again. --Ewaldorph 06:47, December 4, 2010 (UTC)

Stuck at fort pt.II Edit

Im also stuck at the fort but instead of dogs attacking me its always high rank guards so i figure i may have to get my rep up but i dont see why since i have the mark. it just doesnt do anything. also the only way i got to the fort is by wearing legion armor

U must send Boone HOME. Then u can enter.

Solution Edit

One likely reason you will be attacked by legion mongrels or high level guards disabling you to talk to caesar is because you have Boone in your party. Even if he is waiting somewhere extremely distant if he is still accompanying you then they will attack. you have to tell him to wait at the lucky 38.

Can't get weapons back Edit

My weapons have been taken for the second time, just after leaving the vault, and I can't find anyone to talk to about getting it back. Can not find a locker either....Thanks if anyone can help me :) -- 07:56, November 26, 2010 (UTC)

  • How is this relevant to this topic? Have you tried the Bethesda Forums? [1]

Are you still in The Fort? You dont get them back until you go back to cottonwood. 03:30, December 17, 2010 (UTC)

benny Edit

So, before entering the vault i could give him a stealth boy and a bobby pin, but decided to go into the vault first. now i finished the upgrade for mr house and ceasar said i can do what i want with benny. so i talked to benny and wanted to release him but....i dont hav ethe option to give him a stealth boy now. i can only untie him...anyone knows why this happens?

Locked Door Edit

I talked to Caesar to get the mission, then went into the bunker, talked to mr. House, but I had 900 rads already so I died in the bunker. I loaded the autosave and decided to come back later. Now, much later, and after KILLING MR HOUSE, I went into the bunker, the Mr House screen said connection lost (cause I killed him) and the door next to the Vault Status Computer is locked w/ a key... Any way around this? Oh, and Im on Xbox 360.

Wasn't fixed by the new patch... if anyone knows a way around this ill be so happy. 03:28, December 17, 2010 (UTC)

Grammar Edit

Can someone clean up the grammar in the "Notes" section? It's practically unreadable. Super Duper Mutant 07:11, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

Keeping Veronica Edit

On my 360 playthrough for the legion, i was able to keep Veronica post BoS destruction. I had completed her personal quest and having her leave the brotherhood.

If you complete enough missions for BoS and earn enough fame then your reputation wont drop enough for Veronica to leave you even if you blow up the BoS. Although I think killing the BoS def will.

Companions in the Penthouse Edit

Everytime I try to go into the Penthouse, whilst all the robots are hostile, my companions won't follow me?

Your companions will never be able to follow you to the Penthouse. Regardless of stage, hostility, or whether House is alive or dead. Digital Utopia (talk) 09:40, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

Blowing up the generators fails the House always winsEdit

The article says, "If are trying to remain friendly to both Mr. house and Caesar you can activate the securitrons using the chip and then blow up the generators." I think this is wrong. If you blow up the generators, you get the message, "Quest failed, The House Always Wins II". Snooldex 12:37, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Stuck in quest of caesar's Edit

okay the legion hate me they want to kill me but do i get to talk with caesar i dress as legion,dog or high rank guards spots me and im dead.second i try to raise my rep by killing ncr troops= didn't work i just made enemy with the ncr,can someone tell how to raise rep or how to get in without being detected and talk with caesar before i lose the temper and go guns blazing and kill caesar.

forget it i killed caesar and his guards they were freaking hard when u have the thing set up in hardcore modeif u want to kill ceasar or have too at least get boone and lilly or ED kill everybody outside of ceasar's tent when r dead place your 2 companions to wait outside enter the tent then leave again quickly wait to come out then run with them trying to attack u then your 2 companions will kill them take a lot of stimpacks with just in case same trick in the bunker and done u destroyed ceasar camp.

Not wiping out the Brotherhood? Edit

Is there any way that you can avoid blowing up the Brotherhood bunker? I support Caesar's Legion but I really do not want to blow up the Brotherhood. Can you just lie to Caesar?

-You can kill every member of the brotherhood in the bunker instead. If you've already completed the Brotherhoods quest line before you kill everyone then they will have an alternate ending that reflects the fact that you did not blow up the bunker.

part 2 Edit

isn't clear when it says: "securitrons won't be out the gate and they will all be hostile towards you" If nothing is there, how can it be hostile towards you? 19:22, July 2, 2011 (UTC)

Lost my weapons Edit

I chose the option to duel Benny in the arena. I killed him, and received a notification that all my items were being returned to me. However, I never received /any/ of my weapons. I received everything else /except/ my weapons. Is this a bug? 09:27, July 12, 2011 (UTC) Your weapons were most likely confiscated by the Fort entry guard, and not the arena guard (I've had a holdout weapon disappear this way though...), meaning you didn't have any weapons before entering the arena. When you leave the fort, they'll be returned. Also, the arena does NOT instantly return everything; it takes a bit of time if you have lots of clutter. 10:54, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

Can't Talk to Mortimer Edit

I finished beyond the beef a little while ago (I killed Ted and Heck in the same building.) Now, I am a member of the White Glovers, sponsored by Marjorie and I'm to request alliance for the Hoover Dam battle. Now my problem is, because i killed Ted and Heck, I can't talk to Mortimer, whenever I try to engage in conversation, he just says "You've done enough." Is there a way I can engage in conversation with Mortimer, or at least skip this part?

-Kill Mortimer and the female boss-

How do I abort the self-destruct sequence Edit

I started the sequence and then I killed all the brotherhood now i want to loot them so i want to stop the self-destruct sequence and the terminal says Note: Need to implement this - Tagart. I know that tagart is one of the scribes but i dont know what it means to implement him

-- Answer --

I'm not 100% certain but the wording here leads to believe that it is a note written by Tagart - that the in game character Tagart meant to implement the feature of cancelling the self-destruct sequence, but never got round to it - which means that once it is started, it cannot be stopped.

Faction Glitch Edit

I was doing the Legion quest line and it was fine until after i talked to the white glove society and i fast traveled back to the fort but as soon as i am there everyone attacks me. The Legions faction towards me is "liked" and i've gone in and out of the fort lots of times before this without problems, so why is it spazzing on me now? Also i tried going to other Legion locations like Cottonwood Cove and Nelson but they are still hostile. I had just done the Happy Trails quest downloadable content would that cause this?? Please Help! 21:09, August 9, 2011 (UTC)

Answer: You may have a companion with you that is causing them to attack you on sight I'm not sure about the list of which ones will cause this but Boone would be especially one of them. Though since your siding with the legion I doubt you have him with you.

Forgiveness for crimes against the Legion? Edit

I heard that after you deal with the Boomers, Caesar will give you a chance to confess your crimes (such as making the Kahn's break allegiance with Legion, sabotaging the Gomerta's plans, etc.) against the Legion and get forgiveness for them. This way you can still do anti-legion missions, and continue down the Legion questline. Is this true? Pendejochy 20:57, November 24, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, just happened too me (too late?), he wont forgive you anymore according too him.

He will act very irritated about it, even to the point where he acts like he's going to have you killed - but if you say "But, you guaranteed my safety!", he'll just say that he's fucking with you, and continue on by saying that he's impressed that you can get things done. At the point I met him, I pretty much already did everything possible to screw them over. Including stopping the Omertas, wiping out the Khans, exposing the spy in McCarran, killing the Fiend leaders (including Motor-runner), and even killed Vulpes and friends in Nipton. And he still was willing to let me help him. Digital Utopia (talk) 09:52, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

Can't talk to Caesar Edit

I didn't see my little issue addressed on here so I thought I'd put it. I'm hated by the Legion, straight up vilified. I'm trying to do Render Unto Caesar only for XP. I wear faction armor all the way up to the tent. I'm currently crouched with a stealth boy activated. I try to talk to Caesar but I can't. It only zooms in on his face but then immediately zooms out. I've tried non-faction armor, but they hate me too much. I tried equipping and then switching out of NCR armor. Any ideas? 15:11, May 11, 2012 (UTC)

The same thing is happening to me. I don't know what to do.

Caesar's reason for bothering to involve the Courier Edit

Why does Caesar want to use the Courier to destroy the Securitron army? He has the Platinum Chip, so (if I remember correctly) he can technically just have a Legionary do the task. Am I forgetting something? Or is Caesar just being generous to the Courier, in his own way? 04:36, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

he says it be cause hed have to kill them so know one will question his brain washing i mean belief system of no robots or chems and what not
         (fallout vault wiki is a good place to look for fallout stuff)

I Want To Betray The Legion! Edit

Alright, I outright hate the legion. I'm about to do this, after I talk to the Bommers. Im good with the NCR. But.. If I want to stay loyal to Mr. house... what shall I do? Please help. -- 03:32, August 4, 2012 (UTC)Evan

Well, you could launch an attack on the Legion by going to Cotton Wood Cove, taking the barge to the fort and killing them. Any details on what you mean by 'betray the legion'. Brittean (talk) 04:01, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

Well, I want to kill Caesar at Cottonwood cove. Any tips? I just want to get there, kill him, and go.-- 22:09, August 8, 2012 (UTC) Evam

Really, I need your help With this: I need to know what holdoout weaposn to bring into the camp. I have a laser rifle and lots of energy weapons and it said a laser rifle was a holdout weapons but I have alot of weapons.. but it only gives me my 2 22 silinced pistols and my knife. Im trying to freaking kill Caesar, not a dog. -Evan

Nevermind... I just need to know which holdout weapons i should use to kill caesar and his guards..

-Brass Knuckles -Cosmic Knife -Figaro -Knife -Police Pistol -Silenced 22. Pistol -Spiked Knuckles -Straight Razor -Switchblade -Throwing Knife

Thanks. --Evanmatthewnewton (talk) 03:50, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

Actually, Its best to discover The Fort peacefully, fast travel away from there, kill everyone in CWC, then fast travel away and get healed, load up on automatic weapons and ammo. Get Boone if you can, and fast travel to the fort and they will be hostile. So then kill them all, and when you enter Caesar's tent, make sure you have an auto weapon out and be prepared. Brittean (talk) 03:12, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

White Glove Problem Edit

I completed Beyond the Beef and got the White Gloves to revert back to cannibalism and gave the offer of alliance to Majore and Mortimer and now there is no objective for Render Unto Caesar. What do I do?

"Accidentally" betrayed Caesar Edit

I've just finished the White Glove portion of the quest, but before returning to Caesar, I made a slight mistake... I killed Dead Sea, in Nelson. Now when I return to Caesar, he gets mad about the Nelson incident and immediately attacks me, making it impossible to complete this quest.

Did I doom my chances of hitting it off with the Legion? Is there any way of continuing the quest? What about console commands? — Hofmic (talk) 02:03, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

White Glove Society Problem Edit

I am aiding Caesar, of course, and I talked to him twice, he told me if I talked to him again, he would kill me, 'K. So I left, did the Cannibal mission, getting the White Glove Society to help us, when I go back and talk to Caesar he tells the guards to attack me, cause I disturbed him again. Help?

Killing Caesar before activating 'Render Unto Caesar' Edit

I'm curious to know whether this quest (and subsequent ones in the legion quest-line) are possible if you kill Caesar before you find Benny in The Tops, If you do kill Caesar before you find Benny at The Tops does Vulpes Inculta simply not show up to give you the mark of Caesar?

No, until you receive the Mark you cannot enter The Fort. It is not possible to encounter Caesar before being invited by him.

Codes for starting quest? Edit

Guys how do I start this quest if I'm vilified? which codes do i need to type? I tried the reputation code but they still attack me at sight in the fort. I have killed Benny and got the mark a long time ago. Please help, this is the only main storyline I didn't finish and I want to so badly.. 15:23, April 3, 2014 (UTC)Bozdra93.86.133.175 15:23, April 3, 2014 (UTC)

Platunum Chip Glitch Edit

In addition to the glitch I reported on the article main page, I ran through the scenario with an different game save and here are some other details :

It is possible to kill the gate guards with no reputation loss if it is done with stealth. It can be done with throwing spears if a silenced gun is not handy. If Lucullis is still at the gate it is impossible to leave unnoticed even if you use a stealth boy.

If Cursor Lucullus is not killed before you try to leave, he will ask for the chip from you before you leave and will tell you that the guards in the weather station will give it back to you when you return. (not if they don't respawn...) I don't know if it matters yet if there is a specific guard that you have to refrain from killing.

If you are able to leave with the Platinum chip you will be able to return via fast travel and open the vault in the weather station still, however, all of the Legion will be enemies.

Maybe I'll have more to share later. Itamu :D --Itamu Time (talk) 19:32, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

So I've duplicated this result several times on my console across multiple play-throughs, what is required for verification of this glitch? Itamu Time (talk) 18:37, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

Mortimer dialog bugEdit

I just encountered a strange bug where Mortimer was missing the necessary dialog option to continue Render Unto Caesar after Marjorie rejects you. I tried re-loading an old save and had the same results, but if someone else could verify this it would be helpful. If it's relevant, I was playing vanilla NV on 360. dbbolton (talk)

Depending on your karma, whether or not you have the Cannibal perk, whether or not you rescued the cattle rancher's son, and your reputation with the strip, you might not have the ability to get Mortimer to pledge his allegiance to Caesar. In that case, you have no other option but to tell Caesar that they won't help Digital Utopia (talk) 09:58, July 27, 2014 (UTC)
