Operation: Anchorage Glitches


  •  It is possible to keep your inventory from the simulation. This means that you can keep yourWinterized Combat Armor, Gauss Rifle,Jingwei’s Shock Sword and whatever weapons you got from the Quartermaster (ie:Trench Knife, Assault Rifle, Combat Shotgun, etc.) and then receive your reward from the VSS Armory in the Outcast Outpost. This is possible by exploiting an inventory glitch where the player’s inventory from the simulation is not removed until after the player returns to the Outpost. To perform this glitch, do the following steps in order and remember to save before performing the glitch because it will take several attempts to achieve this. Also note that that the player should not have started the simulation already, otherwise it is impossible to do and I would suggest loading a previous save if you really want Winterized Combat Armor and a second Gauss Rifle.
  1. – To set this glitch up, the player needs to talk to Protector McGraw and then to Specialist Olin to get the Neural Interface Suit. After you equip the suit, do not enter the simulation pod yet.
  2. – Go into the locked room where Gary 23 is and then drag his body back into the pod room. Lift his body into the pod in a way that his body will be in front of you when you sit down. Make sure that it is close enough to search him. Once you sit down, you will not be able to search him so you are going to have to guess if he is close enough. There are certain areas such as under the footstool where it will be hard to reach him so be careful. Now that you have him positioned and you think he will be close enough to search, save the game. Get in the pod and start the simulation, if he happens to move too much and gets out of searching distance, revert to this last save. You will be able to see if this happens right before the simulation starts.
  3. – Enter the simulation and play through to Paving the Way. From this point on everything in your inventory will be taken out of the simulation, so remember to get your weapons package and Gauss Rifle from the Quartermaster and to pick up all the ammo found along the way. Continue playing up to Operation: Anchorage (quest).
  4. – Play through the quest, disabling the pulse field and make your way to the doors of the Chinese Compound. At this point make sure you have a save before going in. Once you enter, pick the speech option ‘I’m going to kill you SO MUCH’. Shoot the Shock Sword out of General Jingwei’s hand. Pick up the Shock Sword and then kill him. Make sure you are not in the southern end of the compound because General Chase may catch you in a speech and send you back to the Outpost without making another save. As soon as you kill General Jingwei, run North toward theChinese Soldiers and turn around to find where General Chase is and then make another save (you can overwrite your last save if you want).
  5. – Now talk to General Chase and he will send you back to the Outpost (remember how you positioned the Gary 23’s body in step 1) During the loading screen start to press A (search button) rapidly. If done properly, you will be able to search his body (normally happens in the black screen, but not always) and at this point put all your items on his body. Exit, talk to Protector McGraw, and then search Gary 23’s body to retrieve your weapons from the simulation. Combined with the following two bugs, a player can leave the simulation with tens of thousands of bottlecaps worth of ammo.
  • – This part is hard and will take several attempts to achieve it. Try several different methods such as rapidly pressing A or tapping A at a slower rate (changing the rate at which you press it helps), using third person, looking down (or down to left or right), or even trying a mixture of them.
  • – Also Most Weapons & Armor taken from within the Simulation will result in them never losing CND. The Fat Man, Super Sledge, and Chinese Officer Sword lose Condition.
  • Another glitch allows you to get all of the weapons that you requisition from the Quartermaster. This is simple, all you do is get one of the tapes for a set weapons (ie: Close Combat, Fire Team, etc.) then get the weapons from theQuartermaster. After you do that, go back to the command tent and get another tape. Go outside again, drop your guns and talk to the Quartermaster again. He will give you the new set of weapons that you ask for. A message will then appear saying your other set of weapons were removed, but they will still be where you dropped them earlier. Keep repeating until you get the desired packages/weapons. If you use this with the other glitch (keeping the weapons from simulation), you can make a fast couple of caps once you sell the items or it’s just a quick way of building an arsenal if you are a low level.
    • Note: Attempting to talk to a stealthed Chinese Stealth Dragoon will cause it to reset your equipment to what you’re supposed to have. Same thing will happen upon conversation with a soldier equipped with Power Armour, and possibly just any NPC.
  • It is also possible to drop your ammo replenish and then pick your original ammunition up again, bypassing the simulation’s built in ammo cap. This allows for infinite ammo as long as the player is willing to repeat the process.
  • – You can gain unlimited EXP during the quest Paving the Way, specifically when securing the Listening Post and destroying the fuel tanks in the Chimera Depot. It is recommended that you save your game between each EXP boost to ensure that you don’t lose any of your hard work.
  1. – First, you will need to recruit a Strike Team that has only one robot in it, either a Mister Gutsy or the Sentry Bot.Benjamin Montgomery will be in your team by default, but do not assign any other NPCs to your squad while attempting this glitch because they will make it more difficult.
  2. – Now, you will need to requistion a weapons package from the Quartermaster. Any weapons package will do, but the Fire Team package is recommended. Your ammo will need to be refilled quite frequently from the nearest ammo supply station depending on how long you want to do this (this can be done indefinitely), however, if you just want it gain quick exp and not spend much time on it, then obtain some hard hitting weapons such as grenades, mines, a missile launcher or a Gauss Rifle. To save time on getting ammo, use the ammo glitch (see above).
  3. – Then tell your team go to the Listening Post or the Chimera Depot or have them follow you to a secluded area. If you head to the Listening Post or the Chimera Depot, clearing the enemies from the area first is recommended.
  4. – Now to actually do the glitch, put the robot between yourself and Benjamin Montgomery and then start attacking the robot. You should try to remain between the robot and Benjamin Montgomery for the duration of the glitch because there is a chance that Benjamin Montgomery will start attacking you when he sees what you are doing, then again there is a chance that he will attack the robot as well (same goes for any other NPCs you might have put in your group). Also if you use VATs and have the Mysterious Stranger Perk, there is a chance that he will appear and you will not get credit for the kill.
  5. – Once the robot is destroyed you can request another from Benjamin Montgomery. Within seconds, another will appear nearby. Repeat step 4 as many times as you want to gain EXP.

    Where do you get the Gauss Rifle in the Simulation after you get to the outpost, please reply

    • shardinc Says:

      when the simulation is complete, there will be a barracks room which will be open and i there there will be the rifle and armor, there is also a glitch to get the rifle in the simulation out with you, this can be found under glitches in my blog.

  2. Mark Says:

    Can you keep the one in the Simulation?

    • flashback Says:

      yes just follow the glitch up above, there are some nice videos on how to do it on the web but id just suggest having the mesmetron to make defender sibly go berserk(therefore he will be killed by the other outcasts)so you can add him to the pod for the weapons glitch.
