Armored Vault 21 Jumpsuit
Form ID: 1046F8
An armored version of the Vault 21 Jumpsuit, like the Armored Vault 101 Jumpsuit seen in Fallout 3, as well as the Armored Vault 13 Jumpsuit seen in this game. The suit has a +5 bonus to Guns, and +3 to Energy Weapons. Despite not being available in the game, the Courier can be seen wearing the jumpsuit in the very last ending slide. According to developer Joshua Sawyer, the jumpsuit was unintentionally omitted.Formspring
Its attached script indicates that it was to be found mounted rather than neatly folded, which is also how the Armored Vault 101 Jumpsuit was found:
scn ArmoredVaultSuitMountedSCRIPT BEGIN OnActivate if IsActionRef player == 1 player.additem MS03VaultSuit21Armored 1 1 disable endif END
Aura Token Kicker
Form ID: 13B1A8
This is an odd item. The GECK says it's a pair of sunglasses, but it can't be equipped or even seen if added to the inventory. Despite being a Legion-related item (called LegionExplorerAuraToken internally), it was mistakenly placed in the inventory of Crandon in North Vegas. The following developer comment is in the item's script:
|This script runs on an unplayable token in Legion Explorers' inventory. I place this GameMode code in an item so as not to run the script on the Actor entity. The token merely kicks in a timer that, when appropriate, makes the Legion Explorer's reference cast on itself (CIOS) an AOE, touch based, spell. This AOE spell is responsible for applying the "aura" effects on nearby Legion allies.|
Boomer and Followers Disguises
A pair of unused message files (FactionReminderBoomer, FactionReminderFollowers) show that it was once possible to disguise oneself as a Boomer or a member of the Followers of the Apocalypse. The Boomer disguise would have been useful for infiltrating Nellis, and a Followers of the Apocalypse disguise would have made the Legion docile.
You are still dressed as a member of the Boomers.
You are still dressed as a member of the Followers of the Apocalypse.
Fiend Faction Armor
Similarly, there is an unused script indicating that Fiend armor was planned to function like regular faction armor at one point:
scn FiendTestArmorScript begin OnEquip Player setAlly FiendFriendFaction PlayerFaction 1 1 showwarning "faction set" end begin OnUnequip Player setenemy playerfaction FiendFriendFaction 1 1 showwarning "faction unset" end
Papa Khan Armor and Helmet
Form IDs: 15A937 (Armor), 15A935 (Helmet)
This helmet and this armor can be found on a second unused Papa Khan NPC. Stats of these items are incomplete and the texture of the armor is missing.
Powder Ganger Simple Armor Mask
The texture file for the Powder Ganger Simple armor contains an unused white shirt fashioned into a homemade balaclava mask. It was likely omitted to allow the player to wear separate headgear, as very few pieces of armor take both the head and body equipment slots. Further evidence of this scrapped mask can be seen in the Powder Ganger's reputation icon.
Remnants Tesla Armor
Form IDs: 133F31 (Armor), 134094 (Helmet)
Enclave power armor similar to the set you get for helping Arcade Gannon with his quest, except it's got tesla coils on the back. Gannon will wear an identical looking piece of armor in the final battle if you get his help, but it's actually a completely different item. Nevertheless, an unused message file (FollowersMessageArcadeUpgradeGiveArmor) indicates Arcade would have been the source of this armor.
Arcade has chosen to give you the customized Tesla armor of his father for the upcoming battle against Caesar's Legion.
As indicated by the following unused message file (FollowersMessageArcadeUpgradeKeepArmor) his personal quest could have also been solved differently, with another outcome that has him keep his armor (similar to how it is in the final game under all circumstances).
Arcade has chosen to don the customized Tesla armor of his father for the upcoming battle against Caesar's Legion.
Form ID: 153A0E
Other than the fact that all the REPCONN employees are dead, there's no real reason why this shouldn't have made it in. Note the uncapitalized name. When dropped on the ground it looks like a RobCo Jumpsuit.
Vault 24 Jumpsuit
Form ID: 1300B0
Has the same stats as every other vault jumpsuit, except there's a 24 on the back. Vault 24 doesn't appear in the game and wasn't even mentioned in any supplemental materials. It is possibly a vestige of a cut location. Its Pip-Boy icon is darker than that of the other vault jumpsuits.
Form ID: 11A970
Graphically identical to the White Glove Society Mask. Repaired by and uses the Pip-Boy icon of the Raider Arclight Helmet. Weighs three times as much as the White Glove Society Mask, but does not disguise.
Form ID: 432B
The armor-piercing homemade claw weapon from Fallout 3 was set to return but didn't make it into the final version of the game, making Deathclaw Hands useless. A unique version of the Deathclaw Gauntlet would eventually appear in the Lonesome Road DLC.
Form ID: 1465A6
A 9mm pistol which inflicts 9999 damage per hit. Like its name states, it was clearly used for debugging purposes during development.
Form ID: F82AA
A laser rifle which inflicts 1000 damage per hit and always critical hits, thus always turning the target into a pile of ashes.
Double Barrel Shotgun
Its repair list can be found in the GECK's form lists, but there is no other evidence of its existence. It's probably safe to assume that this would have been the same as the double-barreled shotgun from Fallout 3's Point Lookout DLC.
Eagle Flag Pole
Contained in the first-person view models for the weapons. This was later used in the game's final DLC add-on Lonesome Road as the model for Ulysses' weapon, Old Glory.
General Purpose Machine Gun
Evident from its unused and empty repair list, RepairNVGPMachineGun. Might have been an early name for the Light Machine Gun (which has its own list).
Heavy Rail Cannon and Light Rail Cannon
WeapNVHeavyRailCannon and WeapNVLightRailCannon are two unused weapon names found in the unused NVMissFortuneGunScript. The name brings to mind the Railway Rifle from Fallout 3, but what these weapons did is anyone's guess.
Has an unused repair list, RepairNVHeavyRiveter. Likely similar in concept to the above.
Laser-assisted Electric Rifle. Has a concept art in the collector's edition strategy guide; the only in-game evidence of its existence are leftover actor and object effects in the GECK. Later added as a weapon in the Old World Blues DLC.
Though the Fallout 3 weapon itself has been deleted from the game's files, the faction MS13 Can be Mezzed with Mesmetron is full of New Vegas NPCs, indicating that player-initiated slavery may have been planned at some point.
Form ID: 1003B1
At first glance appears to be an embedded weapon, however it is marked as playable, has all of its art assets (embedded weapons typically lack these; Nellis Artilery uses the Fat Man's graphical assets), and is otherwise completely unused. Uses the Barter skill to calculate damage.
Pew Pew Unused Script
From an unused script:
scn WeapPewPewScript ; This script is attached to weapon WeapNVLaserPistolUnique, otherwise known as ; Pew Pew. It makes the pistol fire twice quickly for every pull of the trigger. ; KNOWN ISSUE: If the player has one charge left in the pistol and fires, the gun will ; fire twice and pull the ammo for the second shot from the player's reserve, before ; playing the reload animation. As soon as we have a way to check ammo, I'll set this ; up to not fire the second shot if there's no ammo left in the gun.
This was apparently never corrected so the Pew Pew's behavior was (eventually) changed to fire five energy cells at once.
Form IDs: CDA5C (Weak), F7EAE (Always Crit)
There are three items with this name in the game's files, with two of them going unused. The first is called HVWeapPlasmaRifleWeak internally, and just as its name suggests, it's weaker then the regular Plasma Rifle. The HV prefix in the name means that it was intended for use in Hidden Valley, probably as another broken weapon like the Jammed Minigun. The other is named WeapPlasmaRifleAlwaysCrit, which functions more like a Multiplas Rifle, except it always crits and always turns the target into a puddle of goo. Both unused rifles look identical to the regular version.
Form ID: 13621D
A clone of the Codac R9000. Uses small energy cells.
Form ID: 171B48
An early version of the Legion slaves' backpack, equipped as a weapon. Using it has the player throw a punch as if nothing is equipped. It is marked as unplayable, so it cannot be picked up when dropped or sold. Its textures are not displayed correctly, indicating that the texture file for the slave backpack was modified.
Form ID: 14DDDF
Inflicts fatigue damage like the boxing gloves.
Unique Multiplas Rifle
The Multiplas Rifle's model was originally intended for a unique weapon version of the weapon (there is no unique Multiplas Rifle). Generic Multiplas Rifles were given the unique model, leaving the original model unused.
Unused Big Boomer Skin
An unused alternate skin for the unique Sawed-Off Shotgun. The texture is designed to fit the Sawed-Off Shotgun model from Fallout 3.
10mm Pistol Heavy Frame
The name of the mesh for the default 10mm view model lists it as a 'Heavy Frame' mod in the GECK. The mod, if it existed, would have increased the durability and weight.
Hunting Rifle Stripper Clip
Listed in the GECK's viewmodels in name only. The mesh doesn't exist.
Marksman Carbine Extended Magazine
Unfortunate, as the Marksman Carbine has no mods in the game.
Service Rifle Bayonet and Reflex Sight
Their graphics exist, but the specifics for the mods themselves are incomplete. How the bayonet would have worked is a mystery, since there are no combination melee-firearm weapons in the game.
Trail Carbine Laminate Stock and Custom Action
Form IDs: EEA6F (Custom Action), EEA6E (Laminate Stock), EEA6D (Scope)
Would have reduced the carry weight and increased durability, respectively. There are junk item versions of all three mods which do absolutely nothing.
.30-30 Soft Round
.30-30 Soft Round, an unused ammo type of unknown properties that exists in icon form only.
Mentioned only in the empty levelled item list VendorAmmo25mmGrenadeWP. WP most likely stands for White Phosphorous. Incidentally, there is an unused message file that describes the construction of white phosphorous shells at The Fort (based on editor ID) but this is probably unrelated:
You created several white phosphorous artillery shells.
Form ID: 15FD42
Unused ammo type, flagged as usable by the player. Uses the water bottle Pip-Boy icon, but has no world mesh.
Unused Ammo Effects
Both of these are pretty self-explanatory.
An unused chem existing only in the form of a Pip-Boy icon. What it would have done remains unknown.
Form IDs: : BF7C6 (Berry), BF7C5 (Grape), BF7C7 (Orange)
These are the three special flavored mentats from Fallout 3: Berry, Orange, and Grape. There are signs that they were meant to return at some point - all three are on the list of items banned by Caesar's Legion, as well as an unused form list NVFiendDrugList.
Irradiated Radroach Meat
Form ID: 13215B
Called just "Radroach Meat" in-game. It has 8 more rads than the regular kind. Would have been dropped by an irradiated radroach.
Miss. Quantum Pie
Form ID: 49076
This consumable item from Fallout 3 confusingly appears both on the list of the Legion's contraband as well as its list of allowed consumables, though its stats were not updated for New Vegas's hardcore mode.
Form ID: 284F9
Another Fallout 3 leftover adjusted for hardcore mode and featured on the Legion's contraband list. Likely cut due to because of Quantum's region-specific nature, though a banner advertising it can still be seen in Goodsprings General Store. One crate in Lonesome Road has a 10% chance of containing a single bottle.
Rebound has its own addiction type in the game's files, but instead uses Jet addiction.
Rum & Nuka Agility Boost
Rum & Nuka is set to give the player an agility boost for 240 seconds. However, the magnitude of the buff is set to zero, rendering it effectively useless.
Form ID: 13D60F
Puts Radscorpion poison on the player's weapon. Its world model is identical to Absinthe. Also on the Legion's contraband list.
Scorpion Poison Grease
Form ID: 15BD07
Identical to the above.
Spore Plant Pods
Form ID: E2F69
A minor healing item which increases poison resistance. Would have been dropped by the spore plants in V22. You can find one on the ground of one of the test maps. They would later reappear in the Honest Hearts and Old World Blues DLCs.
Form ID: 30A23
The Elder Scrolls running gag from Fallout 3 was meant to return at some point, likely at character generation. The item's stats were also adjusted for hardcore mode.
Form ID: 1598EF
Test item. Inflicts one 'hiss' of Cazador poison on the player. Uses Psycho's mesh and carries a risk of Psycho addiction.
Form ID: 16007F
This would have gone in Hidden Valley, so Aster was almost certainly Brotherhood of Steel.
Form ID: 13ABDC
A teddy bear meant to be received in Bitter Springs upon speaking to the child refugees with the unused Child at Heart perk. After hearing the line "I like you. Will you take Barnabas Bear to New Vegas when you go?", the player was intended to get it in their inventory.
Though not unused, this strange and useless item (found in the abandoned shack near Yangtze Memorial and in Old World Blues' X-13 Research Facility) is coded to knock dogs out with fatigue damage. The only problem is that there is no way to get the dogs to ingest it.
scn SleepytimeDogTreatBaseEffectScript ; Inflicts Fatigue damage on the consumer to temporarily knock it out. ; Effect-level logic should only apply this effect to CreatureType 0. ; Non-animals receive a different negative effect. ; JES Ref SleepytimeTarget Begin ScriptEffectStart Set SleepytimeTarget to GetSelf SleepyTimeTarget.damageav Fatigue 300 End
Form ID: 154308
Duplicate of Egg Timer (with a space).
Form ID: 15E013
An evil gnome identical to the unique one you find in Fire Root Cave, but with a different internal name. The Evil Gnome's internal name is "ScottEGnome", named after one of the developers.
Mayor Steyn's Journal 1/2
Form ID: 13722C
You can read this on his office computer, but not pick it up anywhere.
NCR Ranger Station Logs
Items intended as alternate means of completing the quest "Return to Sender". The only one which made it into the game is the GBRM2KX Memory Chip, which is in the inventory of a Robobrain at Ranger Station Delta.
- Lineholm's Log (Alpha): 1210f9
- Ericsen's Log (Bravo): 1210fa
- Charlie Station Supply Manifest: 1210fb
- Erasmus's Logbook (Echo): 1210fd
- Kudlow's Report Log (Foxtrot): 1210fe
Form ID: 11678E
The actual chip is called "The Platinum Chip" in-game.
Form ID: 15E5C2
More clutter to be fetched for Red Lucy's egg-hunting quest. Adding a dozen of them to your inventory during the Radscorpion stage of the quest Bleed Me Dry will convert them into a Pile of Radscorpion Eggs.
Recipes - Ruby's Spicy Casserole
Form IDs: 1613D3 (Item), 1613D1 (Note)
This is a junk item, not the functional (unused) note.
Schematics - Mantis Scythe
Form ID: EFB3C
A useless junk item referring to the weapon that was later renamed to "Mantis Gauntlet". This indicates that it was originally intended to be crafted.
Sentry Bot Toy
Form IDs: 140CA2 (Normal), 140CA1 (Broken)
Uses the model for the Ash Tray internally, but if dropped by the player it creates a fully functioning Sentry Bot Toy (or a broken one, see unused creatures). At some point in development you would have found a tiny Sentry Bot you could pick up. If you killed it first you'd get a broken version. The item and creature are almost fully functioning, except it doesn't disappear when you pick it up, allowing you to get infinite toys. It has no Pip-Boy icon.
Thrust Control Modules
Form ID: 842D7
Vault 22 Mantis Egg
Form ID: EF40D
Duplicate item intended for the quest Bleed Me Dry. One is lying around in the test map "backups". Relevant noteworthy script, entirely commented out:
;If (Player.GetItemCount V22MantisEgg >= 12) ; Vault 22 mantis eggs are obsolete - we use only the general mantis eggs now. ; VPitMantisEggsREF.Disable ; Player.AddItem VMS38MantisEggs 1 ; Player.RemoveItem V22MantisEgg 12 ; Set VMS38.LucyAwaits to 1 ; Set VMS38.PlayerSearches to 0 ; SetStage VMS38 20 ; Return
The faction-specific currencies have junk item equivalents that are never used.
- $5 NCR: 13A4D6
- $20 NCR: 13A4D7
- $100 NCR: 13A4D8
- Legion Denarius: 137B9D
- Legion Aureus: 13A4D9
- Mangled Denarius: 173236
Red Lucy's Chamber Key
Form ID: 167E18
This is a clean key. After completing her associated quest, Red Lucy invites you to her room. At one point, she must have given you the key, or otherwise carried it on her person.
Thorn's Cages Key
Form ID: 167E19
This is a worn key.
Thorn's Master Key
Form ID: 167E1A
This is a worn key. Along with the above, this key was likely intended for a cut unmarked quest that had the player releasing the Thorn's critters from their cages.
Becky Hostetler's Key
Form ID: 167E25
This is a clean key. Becky is the first name of Mrs. Hostetler, the wife of Don Hostetler of the Crimson Caravan Company. There's nothing particularly valuable in their house, so it's uncertain what this would have opened.
