hackcomputerfalloutHacking computers in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas can be a chore. However, guess what… there are all kinds of tricks you can use to get the job done.

Here are some tricks I found:

1) Look at the words carefully.  Do you see any patterns?  I usually start with a word that has either a) a lot of letters in common with other words, or b) No letters in common with any of the words.

2) Symbols that are opposites facing each other can help you out big time.  For example, <> or {}, or strings of symbols that have brackets around them, for example [*].  Put the cursor at the far left of the string, and if it is good one it will highlight the whole string.  Selecting these will remove duds or reset your chances, so if you are having trouble use them.

3) Once you have chosen a word and selected it, the 3/5 or the 0/9 shows up.  This means the word you have chosen has in exact order, 3 of the 5 letters correct, or 0 of the 9.  For example, pretend the correct password is Zebra, and you choose Cobra.  You would get a 3/5. If you chose Races, you would get a 0/5 because even though the two words have some of the same letters, they are in different order.  The letters don’t have to be placed together, however.

4) Once you have selected a word, it stays up on the screen.  Pretend the word I chose was Baseball, and I got the message 0/8.  Really, it’s quite easy after that… I usually start at the top left screen and highlight the first word.  The word is Controls.  I know it can’t be that because it has an L that is the same order as the first L in my first word.  So I move on.  The next word is Keyboard.  This doesn’t work because the a is in the same place as ball.  Next word down is Computer.  That word has 0 of the same letters in order.  I choose it.  Bingo!

5) Use a couple tries (until you get the message warning you of a lockout), then start looking for the symbols.   However, with a little logic you will do fine.  You can always escape and go back again, but you will be given a new puzzle.

For extra experience, if you have a safe tied to a computer, pick the lock in the safe and then unlock it with the computer.

Hopefully now, you will be able to Hack a Computer in Fallout 3 easily.  However, If you are still having trouble, try this site: Hack a Computer

    Actually, this is a little bit wrong. The example with the zebra is correct, but underlying logic is different. The “x out of y” correct means that you picked a word, which contains some of the letters that are in the password and are in the same place, but not necessarily in order. If you use Zebra for example, picking Zotra would yield 3/5 correct, because z, r and a match.
    PS. I know zotra is not a word, but I could not come up with anything on the spot.
