On Xbox, it's the "X" button to rehholster your weapon. hold it down until your weapon is holstered.
"B" button brings up the PIP boy, but holding it down activates your PIP-BOY light- useful for avoiding bear traps. Or you could simply set them off with your gimp foot- it's a "special" technique I seem to have perfected.
Okay- so far, here's my strategy:
I like to build up my strength, so I can cary more.
I focused on my small guns and repair skills.
I've worked on lockpick skills, but neglected the science skill.
I'm working on the comano skill now- in short, I like to snipe.
Lincoln's Repeater is the shiznit.
This game is way worth the scratch- and the instant travel rules.
