The sleepy towns of Goodsprings and Novac, to which I owe a debt of gratitude for my early levelling, deserve a hero who hasnâ€™t been blinded by the glamour and demands of dead billionaires, idealist regimes, insular machine cults or genuinely awful savages with a penchant for crucifixion and slavery. Whatever your moral alignment, the wasteland is full of threats preying on the weak and the innocent, and a lone, stoic hunter is whatâ€™s required to make the world safe. Thankfully, New Vegas makes sure that said lone, stoic hunterâ€™s work is never done.
Itâ€™s the Fiends that bear the brunt of my .308 hollow-points and .50 incendiaries, while the other gangs in the south give me plenty of options for sneaking melee kills and more inventive forms of justified murder. Theyâ€™re are also a fine source of food and repairable, saleable loot for the roving cannibal in constant need of water and ammo. You can set a fine trek northwards from Goodsprings that takes you through Radscorpion and Deathclaw territory and into the South Vegas ruins thatâ€™ll see plenty of hunting, ending with a trip to some merchants and home to rest for a few game-days to refill the land with prey. Deathclaws, by the way, are terrifying for a stealth sniper, so I quite happily waste money on explosive ammo for my anti-materiel rifle to make sure I stay safe in my cleansing.
