Fallout 4 Unlimited Caps Exploit Discovered

Bethesda will probably fix this.


A Fallout 4 exploit that gives you basically unlimited caps--the game's currency--has been discovered. If you're scrapping for caps and need a quick solution, you may want to consider trying this.

GameZone has a complete rundown of how it works. First, you'll need to visit and vendor and choose the ammo type you want to employ for this exploit (this should be the one you don't care much about or have the least of). Then, pick an ammo type from the vendor's inventory; buy it all, but don't complete the sale.

Instead, go back to your inventory and sell back the ammo you just bought, but only one. Then return to your inventory and select the same ammo and sell it all back.. If you've done it correctly, you should be left with one ammo stash that you can continually sell back, even though it doesn't really exist.

Note that this exploit may not work at all Fallout 4 vendors. But try it at enough places and someone will probably come through. A variety of video tutorials are also available on YouTube.

If you're interested, you may want to act quickly, as Bethesda may fix this through a future patch. In other news about Fallout 4 and caps, someone sent Bethesda 2,000 bottle caps to pay for Fallout 4--and it worked.

Fallout 4 launched on November 10 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. For more, check out GameSpot's review and what other critics are saying. In addition, Bethesda has teased the game's upcoming DLC.
