These can be good or bad. Generally, good encounters can be identified with a cross, while bad encounters can be identified with a lightning icon. Good encounters can be found with high luck and perception.
Good Encounters (most in Desert)
|I don't know what this means. Ignore the message about something going wrong. I think it is a possible reference to Mad Cow disease or something.
|UK Police Box
|Go to it, and the box disappears, and a motion sensor appears. Desert only. Reference to the popular TV show Dr. Who.
|Bob's Used Cars
|Inside his shack, there are two guns. In a crate to the left is the Red Ryder LE BB gun and in the footlocker there is a standard Red Ryder BB gun as well as 100 BB pellets.

|Bob's Used Cars
|If you pick the locked door and open it, you'll find both the Red Ryder BB and LE BB guns.
|You can find the alien blaster along with a portrait of Elvis in the ship. Reference to the 1947 Roswell incident.
|Patrick the Celt
|You don't need high luck for this one. He'll give you directions to places. You can ask him to sing a song to you in Gaelic, and your Charisma will increase by one. Identified with the lightning icon and he is found in the mountains.
Bad Encounters (can occur anywhere)
|Random critters, from rats to deathclaws.
|Raiders and Thugs

|Happens when radiation is in your system.
|If travelling close to city.
|(sometimes accompanied with critters). Usually, the corpse has some items in it.
|A deathclaw ate his caravan. At least he'll give you his equipment, so it isn't too bad.
|Fisherman and his son
|Only at coastal areas.
