I'm playing the glitch-riddled Fallout New Vegas. I'm on the Deathclaw Promontory and managed to kill one while sliding down the side of a rock. I'm now INSIDE the rock. I can run about, i can see back out the rock but i hit the "invisible" rock edges and cannot move out from within it!

Please dont say i have to load an earlier save?

Is there a way of getting out of a rock glitch!

I had the same bug happen to me three times over the course of my experiences with FO:NV. I hate to say this but I was never able to get out, no matter what I did. It seems to be a clipping problem with the game; downloading the latest patches if you haven't already might help towards fixing this problem. –  Mana Feb 25 '11 at 10:55

Stuck between a rock and a hard place. I know the feeling! –  theorise Feb 25 '11 at 11:38
    
What platform are you playing on? –  LessPop_MoreFizz Feb 25 '11 at 15:09
    
Xbox 360 (Xbox 360 is 8 characters Gaming.SE, there's nothing i can do about it) –  benhowdle89 Feb 25 '11 at 15:12
    
Aaaah, then noclipping out isn't an option. And you've tried just fast traveling? –  LessPop_MoreFizz Feb 25 '11 at 15:13

You could try to Fast Travel if you're outdoors.

Beyond that, you'll probably need to load a new save if you're playing on a console.

I had this happen to me once and the fast travel option said "You can't fast travel while you are falling" apparently the game thought I was in a continuous free fall while being stuck in the rock. Reload is the only option sometimes. FONV is really buggy. –  JohnFx Sep 22 '11 at 22:05

If you're NOT playing on a console, just use the developer's console by hitting "~". Use the code "tcl" to enable no-clipping mode, then close the console by hitting the tilde key again. Move out of the rock, then repeat the key sequence to return to normal mode. I'm not much for cheats, but this game has made me do that several times.

An important thing to note - if you do use this command (or any other console command, for that matter), you will no longer be awarded steam achievements for the remainder of the session. If you save, exit FNV, open FNV, and reload the save, Steam achievements will be obtainable once more. –  Dave McClelland Mar 21 '11 at 17:54
    
Aha! Now I see why I don't have some achievements unlocked that I know I've gotten! TY! –  David Krider Mar 22 '11 at 12:34
    
Glad to help. I missed out on one of the end-game achievements as a result of this. Quite annoying, but I'm just glad using a console command don't lock out achievements permanently. Especially with how glitchy FNV was on release :) –  Dave McClelland Mar 22 '11 at 14:35

If you throw an explosive at your feet and survive, you might be thrown away enough to get out of the rock. Even so, you're most likely going to have to load an earlier save. The best advice in Fallout: New Vegas is "save early, save often".
