* EarlyGameHell: You have no firearms until you get to Klamath. In the meantime, unless you have Unarmed or Melee Weapons tagged, prepare to spend considerable lengths of time whiffing two out of three attacks (hit-and-run helps you avoid damage, but hardly makes things any quicker).

* EarlyGameHell: You have no firearms until you get to Klamath. Klamath, and finding anything beyond the Pipe Rifle, statistically the worst gun in the game, needs a trek into a dungeon. In the meantime, unless you have Unarmed or Melee Weapons tagged, prepare to spend considerable lengths of time whiffing two out of three attacks (hit-and-run helps you avoid damage, but hardly makes things any quicker).quicker) against melee enemies who probably have more health than you and will hit more often. And your choices for healing are the terrible Healing Powders, which lower your Perception so you'll miss even more attacks. The game becomes a lot easier once you scrap together the caps needed to recruit [[TheBigGuy Sulik]] in Klamath, and by the time you get into the Den quests you should be properly outfitted with a good gun and decent armor along with a cache of supplies.

** The Vindicator Minigun, despite being the strongest gun in the game, proven to take down TheDragon in one combat turn using the right build, eats up rare ammo like a starved pig. You can build up a pretty fast supply of ammo by farming random Hubologist encounters though, as many of them have H&K G11Es on them, which uses the same 4.7 Caseless ammo.

'''''Fallout 2''''', part of, of course the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series, was released in 1998. This installment improves much upon [[VideoGame/{{Fallout 1}} its predecessor]], being a game where you can do just about anything, within reason. Depending on your actions, intelligence, charisma, gender and patience, each playthrough is a ''wildly'' different experience. Numerous pop culture references make this game a troper's best friend.

* MagikarpPower: [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Believe it or not]], but this trope applies to Vic. He is acclaimed as a [[JokeCharacter totally useless character]] both in and out of universe. It goes so far that your character starting Repair skill tends to be higher than his when you first meet and he's supposed to be your team mechanic. But what most people are unaware of is that he can level-up six times, have 12 Action Points (read - two shots per turn) ''and'' he can use rifles and energy weapons, which he can effectively use just after two level-ups. By comparison, resident {{Badass}} Cassidy gets 10 Action Points on his final level, giving him only one shot per turn and his Small Guns skill is considerably lower. It's debatable how much this truly applies to Vic, though, since even at low level when his repair skills are poor he's still very effective in combat if you can give him a hunting rifle or similar gun.

The game was initially going have a sequel created by the original creators entitled''VideoGame/FalloutVanBuren''. Owing to budget issues, the studio was closed before it could be completed. The rights to the franchise were sold to Creator/BethesdaSoftworks, who created [[VideoGame/{{Fallout3}} their own sequel]].
