Fallout: New Vegas

Fallout: New Vegas Trophies
The Legend of the Star
Completed The Legend of the Star.

This mission is a side quest received at the Sunset Sarsaparilla Headquarters when you talk to Festus, the robotic cowboy mascot in the lobby.

You'll need to collect 50 Sunset Sarsaparilla Star Bottle Caps to complete this quest. There are 100 in the game that are in set locations, as well as a 10% chance of getting a star cap randomly when you open a bottle of Sunset Sarsaparilla. Finally there are random encounters with collectors which could yield additional caps, depending on how unethical you are. A collector named Malcolm Holmes may approach you to discuss the caps, who you can pickpocket or kill for his collection. You may also randomly interrupt a fight in the wasteland between Tomas and Jacklyn who have a number of caps between them. Once you have 50 caps, return to Festus for your "reward".

Don't panic when the quest "fails". Talk to Festus again to get your real prize and you'll get another quest called "A Valuable Lesson". Complete this second quest by going to the prize closet and picking up the holotape, and you'll get the trophy. Make sure to pick up the unique weapon Pew Pew while you're here!

you can collect the caps from festus himself by playing his game and every once in a while he'll give you a blue star cap. just keep pressing x for a while. it will take time but so will collecting the 50 caps anyway.

This site says about 10-15 min is the waiting time to give another round in Festu's minigame.

It also contains a list of fixed star bottle caps.

Hope it helps.

way i did this one was to just go wandering round the mojave most settlements have at least one, though one thing that was said was about the guy who you find in the vault where the reward is kept and the other people who you meet on this quest, for some reason they didn't appear in my game
