Fallout 4
Just wanting to see if anyone else out there is as obsessed with this game as I am. What console are you playing on, what level are you, what perks do you think are the best/worst and of course, what are your favorite weapons & mods.

Re: Fallout 4
I'd never played any of them before. Always a COD guy until Ghosts :tdown I'm glad I talked myself into getting it though because I can't put it down!

Re: Fallout 4
I bought the Fallout 4 Xbox one bundle. It looks really good plus you can use the snap feature to get Pandora playing so you listen to different music while you play.

Re: Fallout 4
I played 3 and NV, but 4 is the best game I've ever played. Just don't join one faction and do only quests with them or the game won't last long. Also develop settlements and at least one HUGE one!

PS4, level 30, I level up the top perks first so I'll have more access to the more specific perks later on.
Get to Gun Nut 3 ASAP, then armorer.
Get all the tape and glue you can find!
I'm using polymer armor that I made into deep pocketed so I can carry more.
Always keep a companion if for no other reason than the carry extra stuff.
Google Fallout 4 cap glitch and do that, I have over 20,000 caps.
Look and pick up pretty much everything!
Stay away from the glowing sea(idk I just read DON'T GO THERE)
Stay away from Swan's Pond until you're at least level 20.

The guns I use a lot are:
Hunting sniper rifle with long barrel, tracking scope, and silencer
Hunting rifle with short light barrel and silencer
.45 sniper rifle
.45 rife with short light barrel
A powerful laser sniper rifle
A maxed out shotgun with a drum
5.56mm assault rifle


Oh and there's a mission at the castle you can do where you go to the bunker and get a bunch of guns and stuff. Once you've completed that mission go back to the castle and talk to Ronnie. She has a 50 caliber sniper rifle and a gun called The Last Minute which is the most powerful gun in the game. She only has these one time so get them and whatever else you see.

Re: Fallout 4
I started it up the other day. It seems pretty decent. I got it free during target buy two get one free sale a couple weeks ago. I'm only two hours in, but it will be hard to top The Witcher 3.

ZQ8 Blazer 12-03-2015 02:04 PM

Re: Fallout 4
If you understand RPG's and understand the ins and outs to it you'll love it. It was rated the best game ever.

Laydout'noma 12-03-2015 02:09 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Oh I've watched probably about 3 hours worth of Fallout 4 stuff on Youtube already (most of it was checking out other peoples settlements for ideas) I ran out of steel in Sanctuary building a huge 3 story shack on top of the garage but as soon as I get my local leader perk and can scrap a bunch of metal somewhere else, I'm going to do the water purifier trick to get a bunch of caps. As far as weapons right now I mostly use my two way over powered shotguns, a .45 combat rifle, and a silenced .38 pipe rifle with a long scope, long barrel and quick eject drum mag. I'm at rifleman rank 3 which does 60% more damage with non auto rifles and that .38 can take down super mutants in like 5 shots which is pretty good when you can snipe them from far away and they can't see you. Im level 17 now but I hope this weekend I can really waste a good portion of my life on the couch drinking and playing.

It took me about 3 days of playing on and off to start to like it because I had no idea what I was doing and I didn't have any good guns or ammo. I also wanted to stay dressed in a black suit the whole time so I could look really classy. Once I figured out that armor, rad away, & junk = easier to survive, I started having a lot more fun.

Re: Fallout 4
I've got my intelligence and charisma really high. I need to add some to strength though. I didn't know that pocketed armor would let you carry more, I'm glad you said that. Now I've got to get my Armorer perk up a couple so I can work on that.

ZQ8 Blazer 12-04-2015 03:58 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Yeah I have all my armor set as deep pocketed. Also I found this last night. When you're at the castle you can look out towards the sea and see an island in the distance. If you have a radiation suit you can just swim there. If not there's some other things you can do. If you don't have some high powered guns don't go there, but it's the largest settlement on the entire game. I wish I had known this before I started building mine. No I need to figure out if I'm going to build one there or not.

Laydout'noma 12-04-2015 06:08 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Cool deal. I'm actually just about to meet the minute men at the castle as we speak so once I complete that and get my .50 cal, I'll take a look at that place.

ZQ8 Blazer 12-04-2015 06:15 PM

Get The Last Minute from her too. Idk if you can get it at any other point in the game.

Re: Fallout 4
Hahaha looks nice and peaceful! I have been trying to go back to the castle since I completed the armory mission but every time I head that way I get side tracked. Last night i just ran across the Covenant compound and started helping honest Dan with his mission. Also killed my first Death Claw without power armor too :gunfire:

ZQ8 Blazer 12-09-2015 01:08 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Just fast travel.

That gun I got at the castle allowed me to kill two death claws with a total of 6 shots.

Re: Fallout 4
Im only two hours in at the moment sincie I'm currently playing the Uncharted beta and playing through the Nathan Drake Collection. Idk if ill be able to play much until after Christmas.

Justin, I did notice The Witcher 3 beat Fallout 4 for Game of the Year and Best RPG at the Game Awards the other day though. Trollololololol :p :haha:

ZQ8 Blazer 12-09-2015 11:42 PM

Re: Fallout 4
I played through the Uncharted games and sold it. Good games.

Yeah I'm going to have to play it. I read it's pretty damn good. I think it's like Star Wars vs. Lord of the Rings. We all know Star Wars is better though.

Back_N_Black 12-09-2015 11:48 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Fallout is a whole different game, Imo Elder Scrolls vs The Witcher is more Star Wars vs Star Trek lol.

I stopped trading in games because I get a wild hair and decide to play them again. Ive went from having no games in 2011 to over 200 now haha

Damn! I usually have one or two at a time is all. Lookie what I did tonight. I'm pretty sure this is the rarest power armor in the game and I put the hot rod flame paint scheme on it and made the eyes light up red.
Attachment 241137

Then I did a lot more to the bar. Stole some balls and sticks off of someone else's table and threw them on mine. Also went to a distillery and got around 50 bottles of beer to throw all over the bar.
Attachment 241145

I have almost all of the trading posts set up on the island on a new platform and on the other side of it I have most of my power armor on display with strobe lights.

Yes I was bored tonight and played for over 7 hours straight. Didn't do a single quest.

Oh and they patched the cap glitch :( I have around 25,000 caps though. The gun I use most of the time uses .45 and I have over 9,000 rounds of it so I'm good to go for a good while.

Laydout'noma 12-10-2015 12:42 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Haha wow that looks like a nice place you have there! I wish I could sit down for 7 hours and play without being interrupted. You need to make a small video of you walking around your place and post it so we can see it in full effect.

I get that way with Call of Duty MW2. I love that game and last time I was on there were still some people playing online.

Here's just the shack. Still a work in progress.

ZQ8 Blazer 12-10-2015 08:41 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Another day without doing a quest. I decided it was cramped inside so I widened and lengthened every single floor. Ran out of steel and copper to run conduit and wiring to power everything. Basically now it has a front entrance with the Minute Men flag above the door with lights on each side so it can be seen at night, more beds since there's more people there now, and (I can't think of what you call it) a patio on the 3rd floor that extends out side of the shack. Next thing I done was move the power armor display and places where you buy/sell more towards the beach and I shortened the length of it and widening it.

Re: Fallout 4
Holy sh!t that's a nice place you've got there. Now I've got to tear my shack down and redo it lol. I also see where you said you use the .45. Have you found the two shot combat rifle? I picked one of those up and stuck the powerful receiver on there and that is a hoss of a gun! Super mutants don't stand a chance against it anymore. I think the damage on it is like 130, which is higher than the .50 and combat shotguns I have now.

Back_N_Black 12-13-2015 10:43 AM

Re: Fallout 4
You all are making me excited to play it. Ill probably restart my campaign since I was only a little bit into it. Any tips?

ZQ8 Blazer 12-13-2015 01:38 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Never heard of the two shot .45. I'll have to check that out.

I tore the shack down and made it even larger.

Tips? I wouldn't really make a settlement until you get to Spectacle island which you can just swim there from the castle. After the castle mission go back and buy some stuff from Ronnie. She has some goooood stuff, but only has it the first time you visit her. They patched the cap trick :(

Back_N_Black 12-13-2015 01:53 PM

Re: Fallout 4
you can always uninstall patches and play offline :)

ZQ8 Blazer 12-13-2015 03:08 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Yeah, but I want the DLC. I have over 25,000 caps though. Almost to level 39 so I can mod the .45 more.

ZQ8 Blazer 12-13-2015 07:00 PM

Re: Fallout 4
How did you get the two shot .45? I just got Kellogg's .44 revolver and it's pretty powerful. I was also inducted into the brotherhood of steel as a knight. I got to ride on that big thing that flies in the air and looks like a blimp. They gave me another power armor suit. I'm at level 39 and just upgraded my laser sniper rifle all the way and upgraded my two .45's all the way. Both are really sweet.

Laydout'noma 12-13-2015 10:11 PM

Re: Fallout 4

I cant remember where I got it at but it's been in the past few days so it was in either the Covenant (or the mission they send you on with honest Dan), the national guard area where you do the first BOS recon team mission, or the Med Tek hospital area. I've spent the last few days searching that area. I also ran into Sully Mathis after the Dam had finally all been pumped out. I wont spoil it for you incase you haven't done those missions but I couldn't believe how it turned out.

So far my only two tips are 1) don't bother playing unless you have at least 2 hours at a time to dedicate to it. 2) Listen to anything ZQ8 Blazer says because he sounds like he knows what he's talking about!

ZQ8 Blazer 12-13-2015 10:18 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Ok I just started the BOS team missions. (The first is where the super mutants are and there are a lot of mini nukes, right?). I'm going to get a screen shot of what all guns I have and the mods to them. Might give you some ideas.

Laydout'noma 12-13-2015 10:27 PM

Re: Fallout 4
I think you're further in the BOS missions than I am. Yeah I could use some ideas. I just turned level 26. Most of the guns in that pic are one's I've picked up and haven't stored yet. I'm trying to branch out and use something besides a silenced sniper, combat rifle, and my bad ass silenced combat shotgun

Laydout'noma 12-13-2015 10:37 PM

Re: Fallout 4
I forgot to mention around the same area I got the 2 shot .45 I also got an explosion round .308 sniper rifle. I haven't used it yet because none of my mods would attach to it and I was in a hurry when I fired up the weapons work bench, but it has exploding ammo and does like 15% more damage to surrounding targets or something like that. I'll work on it some this week to see how good it is and let you guys know.

ZQ8 Blazer 12-14-2015 03:15 AM

Re: Fallout 4
I googled it and just bought the two shot .45. It was 3,000 caps, but I ate some grape Mentats got it for much cheaper. I have to have that .308 too, that sounds fun! You know you can revert your gun back to original and use those parts on another gun, right? Like say you have a .308 that you picked up with a short barrel and short stock, but you put a long barrel and maksman stock on it. You just put the short barrel and short stock back on it and you can use those mods you took off it on your other .308. Also I unload all my mods at a workbench at a my main settlement so I can carry more.

Well here's the rundown on my setup.

I just got this little pea shooter tonight and I figured it wouldn't do much damage according to the specs. I went ahead and put the most powerful receiver I could on it and it took out a Super Mutant in 2-3 shots from a medium distance. I was very impressed. Especially since 10mm is cheap!

I'm pretty sure this is the most powerful revolver. It really packs a punch!

Here's the two shot .45. I put a long scope on it, the most powerful receiver they had, a marksman stock was already on it, a silencer, and the ported long barrel.

178 damage with this one! I had pretty much the exact same gun and it had the same upgrades and I think it was under 100 damage.

You have to use this gun up close, but if you mod it with the longer barrel it shoots chunks of ice pretty far and is a pretty good gun. Fun to watch them turn to ice and then shoot them with a bullet.

Shoots rail road spikes and nails enemies to the wall...

This is one of those guns that is a real POS, but once you upgrade everything it makes a really good sniper rifle and fusion cells are pretty common too.

I had this gun because it was more powerful than the .45, but now I don't think I need it. I like the scope though, but idk if I like it or the long scope better.

Pretty much the same, idk if I need this anymore.

I just use this for hip fire.

More hip fire.

That new two shot sniper and 10mm pistol are both pretty sweet though. Can't wait to use them both some more. Neither hardly make any noise at all with the silencers.

ZQ8 Blazer 12-15-2015 12:17 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Yeah that shotgun is pretty fun! Today I got the Alien Blazer and fully upgraded it except I didn't mod the ammo it uses yet. I also found a prototype laser handgun which I converted to a sniper rifle. Does 136 damage just like the other, but you never have to reload it. I have to find more 10mm bullets. I love that gun with the long quick eject mag because I'm can't level up anymore on quick reload and it shoots super fast. It's the gun I use at the end of the video below.

I rarely use mini nukes, but figured I'd have fun with this guy since he was suppose to be beyond what level I'm at.

Also I have the best power armor in the game. I think I upgraded all the armor on it to the max, added tesla could to the chest piece so it shocks enemies that gets close to me, and installed shocks in the legs so I can carry more weight. Here's a video with a jet pack. It's neat, but it used a lot of the power core's power so I got rid of it.

Laydout'noma 12-16-2015 05:24 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Damn that little 10mm is bad! and you get like 10 hits it V.A.T.S. I tried to use the Fatman last night on the Murilack king on spectre island and it set me back pretty far. I nuked myself, Codsworth, and 3 Murilacks (or however it's spelled). I also just about sh1t my pants last night. I was pretty sure you could have multiple games going at one time but I wasn't 100% sure. I had been drinking and my girlfriend came home and was bitching about me playing so I thought it would be a good idea to start her a game so she could see how much fun it is. I saved my game and went to the main menu and started her a campaign. had her make a character and told her how to navigate and use the controls. We ended up going to the vault and getting frozen. Once we came out of the freezer pod, she was able to get almost to the Pipboy before the radroaches killed her and she gave up for the night. I ended up getting her to the surface and then save it and went back to the main menu to look for my game to make sure it was there and didn't see it. It felt like my stomach had fallen through the floor!!!! I was cussing like hell at myself and about to crack the hard liquor open I was so mad, but luckily I saw where it gave me the option to switch characters back to my game, and there I found all of my saves. So to sum it up, I was just about done with this thread for a while if I had erased over a month's worth of data over something stupid.

Back_N_Black 12-16-2015 06:06 PM

Re: Fallout 4
Haha I'm not far into fallout but if that happened with the witcher I would've shit my pants.

I'm about 4 hours in now. Starting to get used to it. I reckon its pretty decent. I'm wanting a long deep RPG and I think this game may fit the bill.

ZQ8 Blazer 12-16-2015 07:36 PM

Re: Fallout 4
I'm at level 41 right now. All I did today was expand my settlement more. A death claw came out of no where and started attacking my settlers. I had fun killing him.
