  • Kills made with Two-Step Goodbye count towards this challenge.
  • The weapons seem to have a kill count limit, as in some playthroughs, switching to another required weapon will allow the count to rise.
  • NCR reputation will remain the same as long as kills are performed in sneak mode.
  • Sgt. Kilborn, Sergeant McGee, and Tech. Sergeant Reyes are not included in this challenge, as they are only non-commissioned officers. This goes for all sergeants.
  • Agent Keller does not count towards this challenge, despite him identifying himself as a ranger.
  • This challenge is not repeatable.
  • Some items such as throwing knife spears do not count despite technically still being throwing spears.


PCIcon pc Playstation 3Icon ps3 Xbox 360Icon xbox360 When using throwing spears for a kill, be sure to have at least two. The game checks what weapon you are holding after the kill is made if you throw your last spear it sees your attack as having been unarmed and does not count it towards the challenge.
