For those of you who play fallout 3 maybe you can help me answer this Q.

#1
Im at the beginning (i guess) and i just went to arefu to find the girls parents are dead. MY active quests as of right now are Blood Ties, Wasteland Survival Guide, Scientific Pursuits, Those!, and Replcated Man. And on all these quest there is an arrow poiting to a little part next to Arefu. It like a little outlined arrow... Ok when i try to go to this arrow it is in the water. When i swim down to the exact location there is nothing... Any help with this? Am i missing something? oh yeah ive done plenty of googling...




oh yeah for instance, on the Scientific Pursuits one (where you talk to doc about dad) it points from my location to Rivet City and to the little arrow.... But on the Replicated Man (somethin about escaped android.... idk) it points ONLY to the arrow..

Looks to me like Blood Ties is your active quest. Arefu is a town built on a stretch of highway. Look around for a highway, there should be a way up.

The dot is an underground train station. The dot to the top left is the one where you need to go to find the gang. You have to go into the station and find the room with the biohazard canisters and there is a sewer grate on the ground that leads to the gang hideout. Really easy!!!!!

I'm pretty sure the outlined arrow is a cursor that you set yourself, remove the arrow by pressing the button that it tells you to when you are looking at the map screen

After you find out, um the west are dead you need to tell the town leader the guy who shot at you when you first got there, he will not want to tell you whats really going on so press the issue he will tell you about a gang called the family which has been messing with the town, you say you will take care of it now he tells you like three location to look for the boy(the girl in megatons brother) DO not go to the drive in movie theater there are super mutants and mirelurks really strong go to the supermarket cant remember what its call its right on the other side of the river from Arefu from here go in to the subway ad follow the markers there will be a few feral's down here and some boobie traps keep going tell you find an raider looking guy dont shoot him he is a family member talk to him bribe him to let you in and how you have access to the vampire *cough* I mean family lair, now search for the boy also if you are real cleave you can work out a deal for arefu that helps the vamps and the towns people and get you a perk.

Are you talking about the arrow that's only an outline? Cause that's your own marker you set around the map. The solid arrow represents current quest goals. The outlined arrow doesn't move regardless of which quest you have active at the time. Go to your map, select 'marker' with the x button, or whatever it is, and select 'remove it.'

That's exactly what it is my friend. Kudos homie.

My rad was up to 485 from swimming in the water trying to get to my stupid arrow.

I couldn't keep this to myself. It was a mistake I made my first run through. Don't ___ ___ tree's heart for the "Oasis" quest.
Don't give him what he wants.

9/10 Bobo Jenkins just sounds godly in general. I think I'll name my firstborn child that. Male or female.

When is the DLC for Fallout coming? The one with extending the max lvl to 30?
