Fallout New Vegas Crafting Guide

By   /   5 years ago


Fallout New Vegas offers wide variety of items which can be crafted; a lot more than Fallout 3.

You can craft custom weapons, armors, medical and food items etc. You can convert your low-quality raw materials into high-quality one’s and make useful stuff out of them. Ofcourse before you do all that, you will need to improve your crafting skills.

You will improve your crafting skills with passage of time and as you acquire more skills, you will be able to craft superior items.

Perks do help though, so you may want to read our Perks guide. In this guide, I will outline the basics of crafting.

It will be helpful to those who are just starting out with Fallout New Vegas. For more help, you can check our walkthrough, armor and weapons guide.

Workbench

Think Workbench as your office table with equipment required to craft new items. You could craft weapons and armor from it before but now you can also make healing items and weapon repairing kits. Workbenches are like campfires and reloading benches – each of them have their own crafting abilities and uses. You can also create ammunition for your energy weapons. You can reloading benches throughout Wastelands.

Reloading Bench

In short the reloading bench is used to convert low-level items (mostly ammunition) into high-level ammo. It’s very useful if you can’t find good raw materials. You can break-down the old ammunition you have and convert it into classified bullets. The shells of some bullets can be collected and recycled too. You can reloading benches throughout Wastelands.

Campfire and Electric Hot Plates

Campfires are usually used for cooking your ingredients. You can make food items and the medical potions using these. This reduces your hunger and increase your HP bar by a lot more than what you get from raw potions and food. These fires are found throughout the map. They are mostly next to some wasteland or next to benches or bedding.

You’ll also find some cooking utensils and useful items next to them. Electric hot plates work in the same-way, they are just like your house-hold burners and look more convenient but have the same abilities.

We've got a lot of guides and FAQs here, and you can thank Afnan for providing many of them. It's him who does the research and assembles our FAQs before we can publish them.
