Interestingly, True Police Stories is not included in any levelled lists or merchant inventories, save a single list in Dead Money, NVDLC01ClutterMagazineValue25, which is only referenced in a handful of metal boxes and a single garbage can within the add-on. As such, it can only be found in pre-placed locations.

Behind the scenes

  • Based on the model name, magsguns, True Police Stories was originally intended to temporarily increase Small Guns, but since Fallout: New Vegas combined Big Guns and Small Guns into just Guns the effect was changed to increase Critical Chance.
  • The cover is a copy of the DVD jacket for Dick Tracy, Detective (1945.) flipped and modified to look like a magazine cover.
