I have recently started playing Fallout 3 and have just reached Megaton.

When I disarmed the bomb I accidently pick-pocketed someone and now everyone keeps trying to kill me.

Is there a way to pay off your bounty like in Skyrim or have I screwed up the entire game for myself?

  • I think you have kinda screwed yourself. The only way to reset this is by using console commands iirc. – Ids Jul 25 '12 at 10:05
  • You should have blown it up :p – Lyrion Jul 25 '12 at 11:05

    Interesting, it seems that failed pickpocketing only results in karma loss and not being able to pickpocket again. Are you sure you only pickpocketed? – Ids Jul 25 '12 at 12:29

    Um I may have slaughtered lem all when they attacked me :I – The deadric warrior Jul 28 '12 at 16:25

I have made mistakes like this in the game too and usually if I leave for a while and return much later everyone returns to friendly mode. If you only pick pocketed then it could be a glitch.


Leave the town for a few days, then come back. They should calm down.

See this for reference: I accidently made the Underworld aggro. Will they ever calm down?
