• Completing a pacifist run in Fallout: New Vegas is rare and challenging, requiring players to make crucial choices that affect the game’s outcome.
  • A player completed 110 quests without killing anyone in Fallout: New Vegas, but wouldn’t recommend the experience it to others.
  • Despite the difficulty, Fallout: New Vegas offers unique gameplay experiences that keep players engaged, even after a decade since its release.

A dedicated gamer online has shown off their complete pacifist run of Fallout: New Vegas, after completing the game without killing a single NPC. Fallout: New Vegas is renowned for how much choice it offers players, but it’s almost hard to believe that someone could finish it without killing anyone.

In Fallout: New Vegas, choice is everything. Players are making decisions that will affect the rest of the game from the very beginning when waking up in Doc Mitchell’s house. Plenty of choices affect the Fallout: New Vegas ending that players receive, too. While the other games in the Fallout series are also considered RPGs, there’s nothing quite like what’s on offer here, and that’s exactly why players are still playing through the game in different ways, well over a decade since it was first launched.


37% of Fallout 4 Gamers Are Missing Its Easiest Achievement

A surprising amount of Fallout 4 gamers are missing the easiest achievement one can unlock in Bethesda’s open world action-RPG.

Redditor ninni113 shared the stats from their pacifist run of Fallout: New Vegas, revealing a level 46 character who had completed 110 quests in the game, all without killing a single person or creature. Very few RPGs actually support pacifist runs in their entirety, and it’s great to see that Fallout: New Vegas is one of them, even if it isn’t an easy task by any stretch of the imagination, with this taking around 80 hours, according to the player.

Pacifist Run in Fallout: New Vegas

While sharing their experience with the run, ninni113 had one main point, stating, “Pro gamer tip: don’t do this.” According to the player, some of the most frustrating Fallout: New Vegas quests to complete were Come Fly With Me, Beyond the Beef, and Hard Luck Blues, with the final one even needing to be abandoned, as it seemed impossible. No companions were used either, as their kills count toward the player’s numbers, making this a true pacifist run of the game.

While Fallout: New Vegas will always exist to go back and revisit, right now, another Obsidian-developed Fallout game seems extremely unlikely at this point. There are plenty of reasons Obsidian should make another Fallout game, but Avowed and The Outer Worlds 2 both being in development would potentially stretch the studio too thin if anything else was added to the slate right now. As for the wider franchise itself, the upcoming Fallout TV show is a great way to keep the series in the public eye until Bethesda decides to develop another mainline game, and it’ll be interesting to see where it stands among other video game TV adaptations.
