Forum:Am I missing something?

Forums: Index > Fallout: New Vegas general discussion > Am I missing something?

Before I get started I'd like to say that im currently playing New Vegas on pc, with all patches, HH and dead money installed. I'm also playing on Hardcore and normal difficulty. Anyway, I looked on some of the NW creature pages and noticed that the xp gained/kill on some creatures were drasticly higher then what I normally get. If we take the Cazador as an example, the regular Cazador nets 180 xp according to the page, whilst i normally get 50 exp for them. This isn't restricted to Cazadores mind you, 50xp / kill is the max I can recieve. I was under the impression that changing the difficulty doesn't change the experience recieved per kill, and to test that I altered the difficulty and still couldn't get more then 50 exp / kill. Am i missing something or is my game bugged? I've tried reinstalling the game but the limitation on exp was still there. Thanks in advance for any help on this matter.

All I get is 50XP from them as well. I don’t know where they get those figures from.ReapTheChaos 04:06, May 24, 2011 (UTC)

The creatures template on the wiki calculates the XP as (10 x level). This is incorrect, but I'm not sure whether anyone's worked out the exact algorithm for XP, as I think it's based on the player level and the creature level, with 50 XP as the maximum and 5 XP as the minimum (except for some very weak/low level things at 1 XP). --Actreal 04:18, May 24, 2011 (UTC)

Might have been a rebalancing part of a patch - have you checked the patch notes? Kaldhore 09:31, May 24, 2011 (UTC)

Tbh i've never gotten more then 50exp / kill and I bought the game when it came out. It seems likely that the experience shown on the wiki is miscalculated somehow, since all of the youtube videos I've watched shows the same xp recieved.(Rioten 13:34, May 24, 2011 (UTC))

I got 55xp for deathclaw all the time. I'm the best at space!
That bonus can easily be explained by the well rested bonus, the 150 experience discrepancy on some deathclaws cannot.(Rioten 10:53, May 25, 2011 (UTC))
Perhaps if I ever slept. I don't play on hardcore mode, so there is no need to sleep. I'm the best at space!

Fast learner then? That would explain it. Scar: "Say 'ello to my little friend!" 15:33, May 25, 2011 (UTC)

I had a similar discussion with GhostAvatar - see here and here. I think 50 XP is maximum (with no bonuses). Sometimes it might look more, when you get XP from completing a challenge at the same time. --GobTheGoul (talk) 15:23, May 26, 2011 (UTC)

Yes that explains the XP I got from that convo where I tested on a debug character, I forgot I had the debug mega pistole and also got the 9999 damage bonus XP as well. It does seem that XP is capped at 50XP before bonuses, but it needs to be looked into further to see how XP is applied. User:AvatarUser talk:Avatar 15:29, May 26, 2011 (UTC)

Is it possible to actually *ask* beth or obsidian? Twitter someone who'll answer maybe, like Jason Bergman, I heard he responds most of the time. Hugs Scar: "Say 'ello to my little friend!" 15:32, May 26, 2011 (UTC)

Ask the man. User:AvatarUser talk:Avatar 15:44, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
