  • Those marked * are actually listed as "merit badges." Merit badges are described as "essentially worthless" and the developers hadn't scripted them to be any definite thing before the game's cancellation,[1] they had also not been ruled out as becoming epithets as the location checklists in Van Buren design documents blur the line between epithet and merit badge.[2]
  • Epithets were not made for Maxson bunker, the Nursery, Ouroboros, or Twin Mothers, but all of the corresponding design documents refer to using the dialogue choices and actions of the player character to check Karma.[3][4][5][6]
