This topic is about Fallout 3 glitches! (duh) But anyways, I opened this topic up so people can post about their person Fallout 3 glitches. (Truly sorry if someone already posted this [probably did], but I couldn't find one in the search forums tab.) So yeah, just have fun and post you personal funny/frustrating/annoying/helpful/hindering bugs/glitches you have encountered. Okay, so below is one of my favorite glitches i have encountered. So I was doing the unmarked quest "Searching for Cheryl". I was at the end with the behemoth part, so I fast traveled to JS Metro Station. Waddayaknow? The behemoth is sitting on top of the ledge overlooking the train right when I get there, I cripple it with my dart gun, it turns around, acknowledges my existence, ignores me, and then stares at a tree. So at this point I'm just like "WTF!?", and I start getting mad because it doesn't put up a fight. So i just blast its head off with a A3-21's Plasma Rifle. Then I go to the overturned train carts only to find another "WTF!?". I see Manny Koch running around in perfect health. Plus all the muties are dead and I didn't do it. Pretty weird.

In the mission where [spoiler] you can kill the slavers at the Lincoln memorial I had finished doing that and it said on the map to meet the slaves at some station, I went to the exact point on the map, but they weren't there, then every time I travelled anywhere, they would be at some random point on the map. Eventually I chased them down in the wasteland somewhere and they thought they were at the memorial. It was bizarre. [/spoiler]

As I approached the F Scott Key Trail & Camping Ground, I could see a deathclaw off in the distance. When I got a bit nearer, the deathclaw suddenly took off like a rocket, shooting up hundreds of feet into the air. It was pretty amusing.

It's still a great game, though, glitches or not.

i always laugh when i enter Megaton and Fawkes is behind me, and the AI seems to just get confused because he just runs around the entire town at ridiculous speeds whenever i move more than 5 feet forwards. happens every time.

I found the glitches in Fallout 3 to be more tolerable than some of the glitches in Fallout New Vegas, although I still thoroughly enjoyed both games. There was one glitch in FNV where I would be attacked by giant scorpians every time I entered one particular house in one of the abandoned towns. The problem is, I was inside the house and the scorpians were outside attacking me through the walls. My shots wouldn't register from inside the house, so I had to run outside and kill the scorpians first before I could safely roam the interior of the house.

I like the glitch in little lamplight were you can keep winning a speech challenge over and over, made the trophy easy to get. Another one that I find funny is sometimes when a screen will load, bodies of people that I had killed before go flying through the air from left to right, lol.

I definitely remember that happening, whether or not it was the same place I don't remember. Having played Fallout 3 and New Vegas for 200+ hours each, I've experienced many glitches, though most of them typical ones like bodies flying uncontrollably, texture glitches, and tons of other stuff not really worth mentioning.

The only F3 glitch I've ever experienced was major lag (PS3 version), but I got that fixed no problem.
