Re: Fallout 4

The Game of the Year Edition doesn't include the DLC on the disc. It's the same old disc with a voucher inside the box that includes the code to download the extra content.

Go to your perks chart. On the X axis all the attributes are listed. Move over to Int and move down the Y axis. If you have an Int of 8 you can take any up to and including level 8. You need not take all of them or take them in sequence. Does that help?

Depends on your playstyle but charisma, lock picking and hacking work well.You need to scrounge for items and sell them to the vendors

As for money...at the start and even later on the best thing to do is collect any and everything you can grab and sell it. Also expand your stash/bag so you can haul more stuff to sell. But...there are some things that you do and will need to make vital parts later on and it might surprise you what some are....

Depending on your strength will allow you to carry more weight...and guns add weight but can fetch decent prices. Even ammo you don't use is good to sale or trade for. Later on there are potions...and even a perk that allows haggling over getting more $$$ on sales.

As to Perk Points...as Brian said it depends on your playstyle and even weapon of choice. Pick what YOU want to be and then look up the Perk Chart to see how it's laid out. There are several perks that I would deem important but it's all up to you.

No, however, you should look online for a scale map. The enemies (all of them) are higher level the farther you travel from your original home and they are the highest in the wasteland zones

Re: Fallout 4

As Brian said...the game wants you to explore alright...just not too far too fast. Again, it goes back to your playstyle along with perks and weapon(s) of choice. For me, I went with the Rifle perk to get as much damage as possible distance wise while zeroing in on perks to help me withstand damage while not being to Tanky & Slow. The other part you will need to look at...and goes back to gathering any & everything is upgrading your armor. A good Chest is a must but you can mix & match various pcs to help out against certain foes. Just be careful as to getting ones that weigh you down too much.

Re: Fallout 4

thanks for all the hints. I tend also to snipe away from a distance and chose the rifle perk.

Shotguns are included with rifle and do great closeup damage.

Don't neglect sneak as it is a 2x damage multiplier. Other perks also enhance sneak damage. Been a while but as I recall it, with the right perks you can get 5x or 6x base damage. My guy could one shot deathclaws.

Always improve your guns. Improving the receiver greatly increases the damage they do.


I see you started a character with a lot of Int. That was important in New Vegas, not so much in this game. Chrisma was a throwaway stat in New Vegas but nearly essential here. You will need Local Leader perk to establish supply lines... fair warning.

Re: Fallout 4

Local Leader perk -
i didn't bother with the settlement building stuff.
it just seems like too much hassle.
also, i couldn't find settlers to assign crops to in one of the quest so i gave up on it.

I actually started liking it; you just have to watch how many start coming once a tower is put up. And when one had a few over I'd send them to another. And I'd give them better guns as wells. I had one outpost that I got "Outpost ### is under attack" and when I got there not one but two Deathclaws were attacking and a group of Minutemen were in the mix. Turret guns, settlers, Minutemen all blazing away and we took them down...it was hilarious....but the crops do come in handy.

This might as well be settlement simulator for me.

Re: Fallout 4

I am at level 55 and not even close to finishing it yet. I would guess I am maybe half completed.

Re: Fallout 4

You can always up the difficulty every time it starts getting too easy.

This might be my first and last Bethesda console game. I'm going back to PC. Still way too glitchy, and using mods to fix issues with the game disables achievements, which is annoying.

I was really far into the game, mostly using melee combat and noticed that my perception was lowered to one, and had been through many, many saves. Turns out it's been a glitch since the beginning in which your head gets crippled, then healed, but the stat never goes back to normal. I tried launching mini nukes at the ceiling to re-cripple my head dozens of times, but was never able to fix it without using a mod.
