10 things you must try in Fallout New Vegas

See all of Vegas' weird and wonderful

Fallout New Vegas is a huge game filled with odd references and funny situations. However, if you don't know where to look you could miss out on most of them.

Fortunately, we've created a list of ten things you shouldn't miss in Fallout New Vegas. Feast your eyes on these oddities.

WASTELANDS GONE WILD!
Acquire the 'Wild Wasteland' perk and your New Vegas experience gets trippier. 30 hours in and we've giggled at a dead Indiana Jones stuffed inside a fridge a la Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, listened to some panicking schmoe quote Bill 'Hudson' Paxton's immortal "They're coming outta the walls!" line from Aliens and encountered/defused 'The One' - a dud nuke still lying dormant in the Mojave...

FIND COOL DEATH DEALING WEAPONS!
New Vegas is all about the killing power. Not only is the blammo loads more authentic, you can pimp them with up to three mods. Why bother though when scouring the nether regions of the Mojave rewards you with gear like the mighty CZ57 Avenger? This monster minigun can be snagged at 'The Devil's Throat,' near Bitter Springs. Neat party hat, too.

CATCH SOME VIOLENT RAYS!
Then redirect them on unsuspecting NCR troops using Helios One's solar death cannon, before watching them all burn like ants under a magnifying glass. Bwahaha, and so on. Okay, so it's not quite as whoasome as Fallout 3's Megaton kaboom up at Tenpenny Tower, but it'll definitely get you in nasty Caesar's good books if you're that way inclined...

FIND A SUNKEN BOMBER!
Go for a swim near the Hoover Dam and, providing you dive deep enough and don't become fishbait for Lakelurks, you might stumble upon this perfectly preserved pre-war bomber. Better still, if you hook up with the Boomer faction later on you'll get the opportunity to raise it from the murky depths with some rebreather/ballast tank action. The result? Muchos popularity.
