I decided to play Fallout New Vegas again, and this time I'm going for explosive weapons as my primaries.
The main problem i currently have with them (other then blowing my limbs off while using them in CQC, which is what i can easily fix with certain perks) is that they will damage any civilians and allies that are close to enemies i attack. It doesn't happen often that there are civilians close to enemies, but in some cases and in some quests it does and then it's really a pain trying to kill the enemies without hitting civilians/allies along the way which will then either kill them or make them turn hostile to me which will then end up in losing reputation with their faction.
Is there a way to not damage anyone else other then enemies with explosive weapons? Like a console code to turn friendly fire off (i usually never use console for anything as i don't like to cheat, but this is really making explosive weapons very hard to play with). Or if there are any tricks that would help me with my issue please let me know.
