F.E.V. is seen as the threat, and serves only to fuel tensions. The governments of the world fear what the U.S. is up to. Speculating anything from trying to make a breed of super soldier, to trying to make Hitler's master race, they begin to panic.[16]
  • February 16: The testing of the Archimedes I weapons system was successful. However, despite precautions being taken, several minor systems were overloaded.[17] Furthermore, both the Black Mountain communications array and the Hidden Valley military bunkers experienced system frying power fluctuations at the time of the testing.[18] However the Archimedes II testing was pending the long-range communication/targeting system on the Euclid's C-Finder.[19]

  • September: Free States leaders Raleigh Clay and Sam Blackwell retreat to their bunkers in the Mire after seceding from the United States.[30]
  • September 6: Technicians at the V.S.S. Facility notice General Chase is making radical, unrealistic changes to the Anchorage simulation. They believe Chase is becoming obsessed with the simulation and is gradually going insane, but refrain from confronting him out of fear that they will lose their jobs to military contractors.

  • October 2-8: The weekly meeting of the Faneuil Hall merchants' came to the conclusion that their sales were down three percent relative to last October 2-8, 2076. The meeting focused on a perceived shoplifting "crisis." They then discussed Fallon's proposal for Protectrons and the Freedom Society's objections to it. The Freedom Society issued a veto on historic preservation grounds. At the conclusion of the meeting the merchants unanimously agreed to detailed inventory tracking to assess the scope of the problem.[34]
  • October 4: A supervisor at the Mass Fusion containment shed put their innermost feelings to record about their coworkers and occupation.[35]
  • October 7: Walter Scott opens a shipment marked "Vault 111 - DO NOT OPEN." To his and his colleague Martin Reid's perplexion, it was hundreds of gallons of liquid nitrogen, something that the vault wouldn't normally need, and more evidence that Mr. Reid's theory was correct.[36]
  • October 9-15: The weekly meeting of the Faneuil Hall merchants' assembled. They came to the realization that despite sales being up by eleven percent due to the Columbus Day holiday. The merchant's inventory report showed net losses of $2,294 for the week, with twelve confirmed shoplifting incidents. Several merchants threatened to sue for breach of contract over security issues, and the Fallon's prepared to withdraw immediately.[37] With the pressure building the Mayor insisted that the Protectron installation will proceed despite objections. By this time the Society – whose representatives shrank from fourteen to eleven – also had to allocate funds for roof repairs.[38]
  • October 10: Captain Roger Maxson and his men discover that the scientists at Mariposa have been using "military volunteers" (military prisoners who didn't have their brains scooped for use in robobrains) as test subjects in their experiments. Morale in the base breaks down, and in light of the mental breakdown of Colonel Robert Spindel stationed at the base, Maxson's men turn to him for leadership.[39][40]

  • October 15: Walter Scott warns Martin Reid about getting Frank Davidson's violent temper.[43]
  • October 16-22: The weekly meeting of the Faneuil Hall merchants' assembled for the final time. After the installation and activation of the Protectrons the Hall experienced what could only be described as a massacre. The Protectrons killed seven people, including five alleged shoplifters, one bystander, and the Fallon's cashier. A public relations nightmare followed, sales dropped eighty-one percent. To avoid further media scrutiny the Freedom Society cancelled further weekly merchant's meetings.[44]
  • October 18: Scientist interrogations at Mariposa come to an end as the last scientist is shot.[39]
  • October 18: ATLAS funding is pulled, Oberlin ordered to falsify research data to prove it a failure.[45]

  • October 21: Maxson orders all families stationed outside the base moved inside the Mariposa facility.[39]
  • October 22: The Platinum Chip is processed. It is due to be delivered via courier to Mr. House the next day.
  • October 22: Martin Reid, completely disgusted with his boss Frank Davidson and his company Vault-Tec Corporation turned in his two week notice.[51]
  • October 22: A hazardous material inspector stopped in to the Mass Fusion containment shed unannounced to check their operation. The supervisor informed their direct superior, Mr. Feld, who told the supervisor that if he caught on to their conspiracy they needed to kill him.[52] He did, and they attempted to kill the inspector and stuffed him into the pipe they were using to dispose of the nuclear waste into Lake Quannapowitt.[53]
  • October 23: At 12:03 AM, the commander of the United States Pacific fleet reports 3 Unidentified Submerged Objects off the coast of California to the Joint Chiefs of Staff.[54]

  • Mr. House saves Las Vegas and most of the surrounding area from complete destruction with his defenses at the Lucky 38, stopping 68 of the 77 ICMBs launched at Las Vegas (59 through forced deactivation and 9 destroyed with laser cannons mounted on top of the Lucky 38). The resulting "light show" can be seen as far as Mexico City.[62] Nine of the warheads evade destruction, a fault of Mr. House being forced to use an inferior operating system without the Platinum Chip, but only damaging minor parts of the Mojave Desert, with the most damaging detonation being near Nellis Air Force Base.[63]
  • The Sierra Madre gala event begins, but is cut short by the war. The casino hermetically seals itself and the holographic security murders many of the guests. The few scattered survivors eventually commit suicide in the following hours and days. Vera Keyes dies from an overdose of her pain medication, while Frederick Sinclair dies in his attempt to disarm his traps. The only known survivor is Dean Domino.
  • Vault 12 fails to close properly. Once it becomes known that the other vaults have sealed, people within Bakersfield attempt to force their way into Vault 12 to protect themselves and their families.[64][65]
  • The West Tek Research Facility is hit by warheads, breaking open the F.E.V. tanks on levels four and five and releasing it into the atmosphere. Mutated by radiation, it loses its mutagenic abilities, but it later complicates things for the Master.[66]
  • At 9:47 AM, all monitoring stations at the Switchboard go offline. The entire United States is bombarded with nuclear warheads.[54]
  • The Mariposa Military Base survives; the soldiers within protected from the radiation flooding the wasteland.[60][67]
  • Van Buren (not confirmed as canon)Gametitle-VB.png Surviving scientists and soldiers based in Los Alamos band together with other survivors they encounter for safety. They set up a temporary camp in a cliff dwelling at Mesa Verde and attempt to contact the federal government for further instructions. No contact is ever made. A small vault is built into the cliff side to shield the only computer they have from the elements.[68]
  • Van Buren (not confirmed as canon)Gametitle-VB.png All Enclave personnel leave Bloomfield to either take cover or maintain "hot spots". Sub-reactor is turned off. Bloomfield, B.O.M.B.-001 & 002, and Hermes XIII & 14 are completely forgotten.[69][70]
  • Van Buren (not confirmed as canon)Gametitle-VB.png Two Poseidon scientists are trapped in the AGRICOLA Lab. After four years, one dies of natural illness. After one more year, the other commits suicide.[71]
  • Van Buren (not confirmed as canon)Gametitle-VB.png Due to seismic activity, some radiation seeps into the sub-levels of the Reservation. Even though the people underground are safe from the blasts, radiation eventually takes its toll.[72]
  • October 24: The Whitespring resort is sealed against radiation at the orders of the new general manager.[73]
  • October 25: The Whitespring guests and staff acclimate.[74]
  • October 25: At Mariposa, Platner, bound in power armor, is sent out to get specific readings on the atmosphere. He reports no significant radiation in the area surrounding the facility.[60][75]
  • October 27: After burying the scientists in the wastes outside of Mariposa, the soldiers seal the military base, then head out into the desert, taking supplies and weapon schematics with them. Captain Maxson leads his men and families to the government bunker at Lost Hills.[60][76]
    • Note: Although Maxson's points in his holodisk indicated that civilian personnel other than the families of soldiers under his command were to remain at the base, whether they did so or not is unknown.[77]
  • October 28: After having wandered for five days, Randall Clark takes refuge in a former USGS research station inside a cave in Zion Canyon.[61]
  • October 29: Taggerdy contacted by Maxson.[78]
  • October 30: Lavonne made a telephone call to her friend warning him of the nuclear devastation. He followed her coded advice and sent his teamsters home to their families.[79]
  • October 31: A black rain (caused by the irradiated material and carbon from widespread fires being spewed into the upper atmosphere) begins to come down in areas across the United States and likely the globe, causing a spike in radiation levels in affected areas.[80]
  • November: Captain Maxson, his men, and their families, arrive at the Lost Hills bunker a few weeks later, suffering many casualties along the way, including Maxson's wife (but not his teenage son). The surviving soldiers go on to become the Brotherhood of Steel.[81]
  • November: During the Exodus, a faction within the Brotherhood of Steel led by Sergeant Dennis Allen breaks off to explore the southeast Glow to recover technology. The Captain refuses to permit that, so Allen and his separatist group splits away from the Brotherhood of Steel, taking power armor and weapons with them.[82][83]
  • November: The separatists make their way to the West Tek research facility. They arrive there twenty days later, and are promptly chewed apart by the West Tek's unforgiving automated defense systems. Wounded, Allen begins to suffer radiation poisoning from a leak in his suit. Before he dies, he logs what happened to the expedition into a holodisk.[82][83]
  • November: Ms. Carrie Delaney is the last adult to leave Little Lamplight Caves in search for help. Ten year old child Jason Grant takes charge in her absence.

    Raul Tejada: "Just how old do you think I am, boss? Because I can pretty much guarantee I'm older than that. Let me tell you a story from before the Great War: Everybody knew Robert House. He was a genius. A superstar. Founded RobCo at 22, dated Hollywood starlets, the works. They say he saved Las Vegas. I was in Mexico City when the bombs dropped. Even from there, we could see House's defensive rockets shooting down the incoming missiles. Everybody assumed he died in the War. Maybe he did. But his robots are still out there, roaming the Wastes. And now, a Mr. House rules New Vegas."
    (Raul Tejada's dialogue)
  63. The Courier: "What preparations did you make to save Las Vegas?"
    Robert House: "On the day of the Great War, 77 atomic warheads targeted Las Vegas and its surrounding areas. My networked mainframes were able to predict and force-transmit disarm code subsets to 59 warheads, neutralizing them before impact. Laser cannons mounted on the roof of the Lucky 38 destroyed another 9 warheads. The rest got through, though none hit the city itself. A sub-optimal performance, admittedly. If only the Platinum Chip had arrived a day sooner..."
