Dammit that screenshot came out too dark. I'm going to have to find that fool and re-groovify him again.

Oh, and it's called a Stealth Wire, for all you Tailor Maid users. I can't believe I couldn't remember the name of it, I use it all the time.

Nope. I'll probably contract the brotherhood to fix that damned thing whenever they're willing to stop shooting their neighbors and accept some caps. Till then we'll leave the door open in the summer.

I don't have any sort of day job( ), and my body runs on a 27 or 28 hour clock, so my bed and wake times fluctuate. Right now I'm going down around 7AM and getting up around 5PM, but two weeks from now that will be the other way 'round.

when you deal the first shot at an enemy without him knowing (by sneaking), it's a Sneak Critical Hit, which does a hella lot damage if not killing him outright. of course the higher your points on sneaking, the greater chances of scoring a sneak crit hit. FO3 is RPG after all*.

also high sneak points let's you pickpocket people with a higher success rate.

edit: ok it's only part RPG, but you know what i mean.


if you can't sneak at enemies maybe:

a) you're wearing heavy armor i.e. BOS Power Armor (you make thuds as you walk)
b) you're using a heavy weapon
c) you are running (press shift to walk while sneaking)
d) you have your pip-boy light on (might as well flash it on their eyes to blind them)
e) you have very low points on sneak
f) you are stepping on bottles, kicking tin cans, hitting barrels as you approach. lulz

High sneak is a godsend. It's one of the skills I fast-track when making a character, I often have it maxed out without any sort of aids by level 10. Reason being it's absolutely indispensable for assaulting installations like Vault 87 and Adams AFB without getting killed and without wearing power armor.

More of the ability to hit anything is in the player's ability to aim than it is the numbers.

What is there to be confused about? It's an FPS. If you can't shoot the ground in an FPS you aren't going to hit anything in Fallout 3 no matter the dice rolls in the background.
