About This Quiz

In the year 2161, things are not looking good according to the first Fallout game. The world has barely survived an apocalypse, there are scorpions the size of golf carts, mutants run rampant and where the heck did Deathclaws come from? The world is not the one you knew, and it's not really getting any better. In the Fallout universe, you have to make the best of things when things are not the best at all. 

Throughout a bunch of sequels, we've come to know the world of Fallout inside out. It's a harsh world, a weird world, but it can still be a fun world. You just need to know how to make a living. You don't want to scrounge around for scraps like a ghoul, do you? Heck no! You need a real job in a world where employment is not really one of the biggest concerns people have. So what does your skillset lend itself to? What's the best job for a person like you in a world that's mostly fallen apart and can kill you about 100 different ways before breakfast? Why not take the quiz and find out for yourself!
