After a few lucky nights gambling on the Strip, a successful raid on a mysterious vault, and a smattering of snow globes my Courier has acquired an excess of 100,000 bottle caps. Now that I have all of this money what can I do with it?

I had spent a few thousand caps on implants to upgrade my character, as well as purchasing all of the upgrades in the Lucky 38 Presidential Suite but I still have more caps than I know how to spend. Weapons, especially from the Gun Runners Arsenal, seem like a decent investment but most of them will end up stored in a box somewhere because I don't need that many, especially after purchasing Medicine Stick.

Are there any other money sinks in the Mojave that I can upgrade? I'd prefer purchases that offer permanent upgrades rather than buying weapons, equipment, or consumables - things I can scavenge on my own.

This question can be extended to purchases in any of the game's DLC.

  • To the VTC'er: I don't see how this is opinion-based - PausePause is clearly asking for possibilities, not which one of those meets a certain requirement.

Try the Thorn out by Westside, you can set up custom fights for a few hundred caps.
Also, if you are looking for good weapons you can bet caps on, I would suggest looking for custom weapons and modding them. For example, the Ratslayer is a fully modded varmin rifle in the broc flower cave.

    It's worth noting that unique weapons cannot be upgraded with weapon mods. The Thorn is a good way to spend caps, but it's more gambling than it is an investment.
