  • NCR reputation will remain the same as long as kills are performed in sneak mode.
  • Tech Sergeant Reyes is not included in this challenge, as she is a non-commissioned officer.


  • When using throwing spears for a kill, be sure to have at least two. The game checks what weapon you are holding *after* the kill is made, if you throw your last spear it sees your attack as having been unarmed and does not count it towards the challenge.
