Fallout: New Vegas players have demonstrated incredible skill and dedication and accomplished the virtually impossible by unlocking all of the game’s achievements in just one playthrough. This extraordinary feat was accomplished during an 11 hour 4 minute long live stream by popular YouTuber ItsJabo.
Fallout: New Vegas was originally released in 2010, but continues to be a favorite among fans of the role-playing genre, especially titles from publisher Bethesda. The game’s powerful story and expansive open world make it the perfect platform for players to experiment with speedrunning and many other self-limitations. ItsJabo’s achievement is a testament to the game’s enduring appeal and, of course, to the creativity of its community.
To achieve this feat, ItsJabo needed to earn a total of 75 awards across the base game and all downloadable content. This includes some infamous prizes that rely mostly on luck and chance. ItsJabo’s experience as a speedrunner clearly helped them navigate the various difficulties involved and complete this impressive challenge. In addition to making Fallout 3 run fast, ItsJabo is known within the community for recently accomplishing a similar feat, accomplishing all of Fallout 4’s achievements within a single space.
“Today we’re going to explore the game Fallout: New Vegas and see if you can get all the achievements in the game at once,” ItsJabo explained on YouTube. “New Vegas has 50 base game achievements plus an additional 25 that come with DLC. By default, you will receive the Fallout: New Vegas Platinum Trophy.” The streamer went on to say, “Some achievements are simple enough, but some can take hours, and there’s only one stream to get them all.”
Fans of the Fallout series have long been begging Bethesda for another game set in the New Vegas universe, but the creators are focusing most of their efforts on other projects, including the upcoming Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6. ItsJabo’s achievements in Fallout: New Vegas, on the other hand, are a testament to the game’s enduring appeal and enduring popularity. As the game draws in new fans and creates unique challenges, it’s increasingly clear that Fallout: New Vegas will continue to be a beloved game for years to come.
