* The Gauss Rifle. Take your pick--''Fallout 2'' where the rifle will blow out half the torso of a target, an ''armored'' target, or ''Fallout 3'' where it'll send an enemy spiralling through the air.

* I believe this troper speaks for everyone who's played Fallout 3 when I say this: LIBERTY. FREAKING. PRIME.
** '''[=DEATH IS A PREFERABLE ALTERNATIVE TO COMMUNISM!=]'''
** '''[=I DIE, SO THAT DEMOCRACY MAY LIVE!=]'''
** '''[=DEMOCRACY IS NON-NEGOTIABLE!=]'''
*** No, we're not Type II Eaglelanders. Liberty Prime's permanent Large Ham-mode makes it awesome.
* First time, no any time you use a Fat Man and watch the glorious explosion afterwards.
** No love for the [[InfinityPlusOneSword M]][[AwesomeButImpractical I]][[CrazyAwesome R]][[UpToEleven V]]?
*** The MIRV is a Fat Man in freaking shotgun mode. It goes without saying that it is exponentially more awesome than a Fat Man.
* Nuking Megaton and watching as the Evil Points just roll in.
** Mothership Zeta has something even better: at one point you are in the ships laser control room and can [[spoiler:FIRE THE LASER AT EARTH!!!!!]] Needless to say, the destruction caused by this blows Megaton away.
*** Well, figuratively speaking. Not literally. Best anybody can tell the laser was aimed somewhere near Toronto.
* Anyone remember the first time they killed a super mutant behemoth? By themselves? EPIC WIN!!!!!
** How about not realizing that there was a fat boy nearby and preceding to take one on with a shotgun?
** How about killing one with your bare hands?
* Fawkes is awesome in general. Not only was he planning on breaking you out of the motherfucking ''Enclave base'' with a ''Gatling Laser'' he apparently got hold of in a few hours for that express purpose, but he's also capable of taking down ''anything'' on his own. This troper took him into the Citadel's main court and used the console to spawn 5 Behemoths at his location. He beat them all. Seeing as Deathclaws ignore damage resistance, 50 or so of them were then spawned. Fawkes was pushed backwards by their sheer mass, but otherwise he proceeded to wipe the floor with them, he and his Gatling Laser. Finally, God Mode with the Experimental MIRV, the fucking ''Nuke shotgun''. Each shot equals 8 Mini-Nukes, where 2 or 3 are usually enough to take down even a Behemoth. Bye, bye, Fawkes. Not so. The yellow bastard managed to survive around 30 or 40 shots ''to his face'' before he finally died. At no point did he stop firing his Gatling Laser.
* Fallout 2 example: The first time you ever use the NPC Goris in combat, he removes his cloak to reveal... [[spoiler:He's a Deathclaw!]]
* At the end of the Broken Steel quest "Who Dares Wins" you get to [[spoiler:launch an orbital strike on the Enclave's airforce base!]] This is of course after you fight your way through the entire base full of Enclave troops. The most satisfying moment is when you realise just how royally screwed they are now after causing you and the wasteland so much trouble.
** If you're evil, though, you can turn the weapon on the Brotherhood of Steel, wiping them out as well. Laughing maniacally as you wipe out the scant remnants of their organization is optional.
*** Optional? No, you ''must'' do so.
*** Even the strategy guide segment on nuking the Citadel sounds like it was written by [[GIJoe Cobra Commander]]
* Managing to find and put together all the junk you need to create all of the makeshift weapons like the bottle cap mine or deathclaw gauntlet, then testing them all out on a group of raiders or other annoying foe. Nothing beats killing DemonicSpiders with the random trash you find lying around the wasteland.
** Particularly so for the Rock-It Launcher, is there anything more rewarding than slaughtering your foes with the cuddly wuddly death of a thousand teddys.
** Using pre-war PAPER money?
* The finale of the Mothership Zeta DLC, where you engage in a space battle with another alien ship.
* The intensely graphic description of what just happens to the player character when you walk down the Master's hall.
* In Paradise Falls, you can find the suit of the Puppet Man, along with a slaver audio recording demanding that the suit be burned, lest he return for vengeance.
* Starting a huge firefight at Paradise Falls in order to free the slaves there is pretty awesome, but doing it as AbrahamLincoln is absolutely legendary.
** Really, though. Getting Lincoln's trusty gun and taking out slaver scum at the Lincoln memorial has got to be on this list.
* In first game, defeating the Master. No matter what way you do it, its epic.(you can convince him that his plan sucks, defeat him in combat or avoiding any meeting at all and setting up the nuke in bottom floor.)
* First, take advantage of the hat-stacking glitch (using the Chinese Stealth Suit and two Hockey Masks) and the fact unarmed damage doesn't cap. Raise your skill to around 10,000 or so. Put on the Ghoul Mask and Linconln's Hat. You are now Zombie Lincoln, Godpuncher. You are capable of one-hit killing anything in the game. Including Super Mutant Overlords. Now go punch out some slavers, or better yet, shoot them with Lincoln's repeater for wonderful irony.
* Boone, a possible companion in New Vegas. After having to shoot and kill his [[spoiler:wife]] so she doesn't get sold to slavers, he joins your party to revenge her. He is the most deadly sonuvabitch in the goddamn space, headshotting all of your enemies before you've even seen them, and even if you do see them, they'd be dead already. His ex-squad's motto? The last thing you'll never see.
** "''It was accurate and so were we.''"
* [[SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Building Of Awesome:]] For the bad guys in the first game. The Cathedral is a huge stone building that seems perfectly intact, leading you to wonder how it avoided devastation. The answer? It didn't. They ''built it themselves.'' And just in case you don't get the awesome, there are very few intact ''bricks'' you can find in the wasteland, and they built a motherfucking ''cathedral.'' [[spoiler: And then [[NiceJobBreakingItHero you had to go]] and [[YouNukeEm make it a crater]].]]
* Fallout2: Pretending to be [[spoiler: an Enclave recruit]] to gain access inside [[spoiler: Navarro]] - First thing you encounter is a pissed off DrillSergeantNasty who chews you up. Then he orders [[spoiler: you to go to the armoury to get yourself a ridiculously powerful Enclave power armor which doubles as a disguise on any Enclave instalment, including [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon the Oil Rig]]]]. Thanks, you guys!
* At one point, some NCR mercs will show up to harass quaint Jacobstown, and Marcus asks you to deal with them. Sure, you can bribe them or just kill them, but the most badass option? Talking it out. Why should you leave? Because instead of fighting an entire village of super mutants, you'll have to fight ''me''. The entire company leaves right away.
* Recruiting Charon. The bartender Azrukhal holding his contract either charges you an absurd amount of caps for it, or gives it to you for free if you kill an innocent rival salesghoul. After hiring Charon, he proceeds to tell you to wait for a moment, then heads over to Azrukhal and blasts him with his combat shotgun as a goodbye, then shoots his corpse for good measure. "Okay let's go". If you ask him why he did that, his explanation is "he was an evil bastard, he had it coming. We going yet?"
** Becomes a BrickJoke that evolves into a RunningGag for the rest of the game, as Charon has a tendency to shoot enemies even though he's already killed them.
