Vault 108's elusive copy of Tumblers Today

  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png The Vault 108 location of Tumblers Today is bugged. The only way to access this book is by wedging an explosive under the stepladder to move it. This is an extremely trial-and-error prone process, as the collision box for the stepladder will prevent you from interacting with it in any way, including the 'grab' button, despite being clearly visible and close enough for taking.
    • On the PC version, it is straightforward to gain access to this book by simply deleting the stepladder. The console commands below will allow the player to get down behind the boxes and retrieve the book. If the player has not collected the Nuka-Cola Quantum on the stepladder, it will remain floating in the air after the ladder has been deleted.
