* OverlyGenerousTimeLimit: Due to system limitations, the game has a hard-coded time limit of 13 in-game years, after which the game abruptly ends with a screen reading "THE END". A typical playthrough usually will not take more than 4 in-game years.

* IAteWhat: At Rose's Bed and Breakfest in Modoc, there is a menu item called 'Brahmin Fries.' The Chosen One can break a record for most eaten in one sitting (36 being the record), and upon beating it and popping a 38th one into their mouth, find out that 'Brahmin Fries' are actually brahmin ''testicles'', causing a SpitTake.

Added DiffLines:

* CrutchCharacter: Both Sulik and Cassidy qualify. When introduced, each of them has combat skills well beyond that of the Chosen One and are very easy to recruit. Unlike typical examples, they also keep their edge for the rest of the game, being two most competent followers straight out of the box.


The game was initially going recieve a sequel known by the codename ''VideoGame/FalloutVanBuren'', but the studio closed before it could be completed. The rights to the franchise were sold to Creator/BethesdaSoftworks, who created [[VideoGame/{{Fallout3}} their own sequel]] set in a new locale unconnected to the first two games. Bethesda would eventually contract Creator/ObsidianEntertainment to create ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', a GaidenGame which continues where ''Fallout 2'' left off.

** Strangely underappreciated by the Ron Perlman intro monologue, which could, with some verbal finangling, have avoided referring to the Vault Dweller as male or female, but just goes full lazy and calls "him" he. Possibly the only time in the game the character is explicitly sexed; later in the game, people remembering Fallout 1 just call "him" the Vault Dweller, sans pronoun.

* BadassArmy: The Enclave Troopers. They travel in small squads, have high health, amazing accuracy, are almost completely invincible against bullets and lasers due to their power armor, and carry the greatest weapons in the game such as Plasma Rifles and Gauss Rifles. Each and every one of the soldiers is capable of easily curb stomping entire groups of raiders by themselves, and they will utterly destroy you if you try to attack them at any time in the game except at the very end when you have several companions and almost as good weapons and armor as them (or if you did the quests in Navarro, their exact same equipment).

* BadassFamily: The intelligent Deathclaws place emphasis on family and community above all things. [[GoingNative Integrating and assimilating humans into their pack]] makes them fearsome to outsiders, and to extremists, a threat [[ServantRace of things to come]].
* BatterUp: Louisville Slugger, an unique weapon to be gained in New Reno as quest reward. It's point-by-point one of the best melee weapons in the game and is only surpassed by Super Sledge in late game by a small margin of damage.
* BeAsUnhelpfulAsPossible: Dr Troy in Vault City wants you to get him some Jet, a dangerously addictive drug. If asked what he needs it for, he'll just tell you it's none of your business. Given that Vault City is a kind of proto-totalitarian craphole, it's not too hard to assume he's got ulterior plans, and moral players might drop the quest, or worse turn him in to the authorities. [[spoiler:He's planning to develop an addiction-breaking cure, which can save Redding. Seemingly an odd thing to need to keep a secret, but justified in that he's redirecting Vault City resources to help a community outside the vault, dealing with an unknown quantity in the form of the Chosen One, and potentially drawing the ire of the Mordinos who control the Jet trade. The last thing he wants is publicity.]]

* {{BFG}}: Aside from the guns that are meant to be big, like [[StuffBlowingUp rocket launchers,]] [[GatlingGood miniguns]], and [[KillItWithFire flamethrowers]], the Bozar stands out for being a giant rifle with immense damage and plentiful ammo, making it the best weapon in the game. In terms of ammunition access and ''weight'' of said ammo (which is probably the most important factor for Fallout's {{BFG}}s), Bozar is the best burst weapon cost and damage wise. And probably the only one you ''don't'' want to rise your skills for, as the less skill you got, the bigger the spread, ending with mowing down entire gangs or squads in single burst. Just don't have anyone friendly standing between you and the target...
** The Bozar was originally planned to be more like a sniper rifle, which is hinted at by its inventory graphics and description. The gun used by the Chosen One however has the graphics, sound and function of a minigun. It also had decent damage per shot and used naturally armor piercing ammo, so it still worked on armored targets, unlike some of the burst fire guns. In it's appearance in the Gun Runners' Arsenal DLC of VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas, it's officially a Light Machine Gun with a scope.
