Sure, Fallout: New Vegas is still technically new, and that a lot of people probably haven’t even finished the main storyline. But that hasn’t stopped a sadistic few from going into the game’s ‘Hardcore’ mode and completing the game to find out what was promised at the beginning as a ‘Special Reward’.
To find out what the cake is, click below.
For those who never attempted, the ‘Hardcore’ mode is where you consistently have to keep hydrated, eating food, sleeping and you cannot fast travel if the distance will make you sick of dehydration. Your Stimpaks also do not heal instantly but overtime and your bullets can add weight to your inventory.
Sounds like a pain in the ass, right? Definitely worth the ‘Special Reward’ offered when you select the ‘Hardcore’ option in the character creation screen right?
To quote Howie Mandel, “WRONG!”
The reward is, and I wish I could make this up, a trophy/achievement signifying you completed the game on Hardcore mode.
I kid you not, all you get for that is a simple trophy that simply says “Good job”. Go back to easy mode, people. It’s apparently not worth it.
