Kill and Loot Unconscious Essential NPCs

Posted by Zumbs on November 13, 2009

Version: 1.1

After activating this mod you will be able to loot and kill unconscious essential NPCs (and creatures) by activating them. Only the player is able to kill essential NPCs, so it will not accidentally damage your game. To get the kill option, you need to have a weapon equipped.

Note that killing an essential NPC or creature may make quests malfunction, so you kill them at your own risk.

Due to limitations in the scripting engine, only NPCs and creatures made essential by unmodded Fallout 3 are affected by the kill option. The DLC are no supported as I do not own them.

As this mod works by adding a perk to the player, it is highly recommended that you apply the latest patch to your game.

DOWNLOAD: Fallout3Nexus | Planet Fallout


Fallout 3 version

This mod can be placed anywhere in the load order, and should not conflict with anything. Killing essential NPCs may screw up your game, but no one is forcing your hand!
