  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png The acquisition and notification of the achievement may, for some, be delayed up to 5-10 mins after reaching the desired level. This might be more likely if you have extra content.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png The trophy icons for True Mortal and Messiah have been mixed up. True Mortal shows a "Jesus" like Vault Boy and the Messiah shows the True Mortal icon.
  • Achievements/Trophies are not retro-active, meaning you can only obtain quest related ones by playing from the beginning when they are initially available, i.e. "Escape" and "G.O.A.T. Whisperer." However, you can gain Trophies and Achievements by loading a previous save, doing the requirements, and then going back to your main save. This technique will also work for "branched" Achievements and Trophies like Reaver, Mercenary, and Protector respectively.
  • Despite both the PC and Xbox having identical achievements, the game has separate IDs for the two on LIVE which makes cross-platform profile comparison not possible.
  • You can get the achievements twice by buying Fallout 3 for PC and Xbox360 and sign in to windows live with your Xbox live account.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png When a Achievement is unlocked they may take several seconds to appear on screen.
  • The "50 Lockpick Achievement"'s image shows Vault Boy holding up a lock that has a 100 and not a 50 on it.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Even though add on trophies are included, gaining all the core game's trophies grants you the platinum trophy without the need to get the add on trophies. (This is not a bug, as this is true with Fallout: New Vegas and any other PS3 game with DLC trophies).
