Hey guys! This will be the third and final part of my 5 Ways to Play series covering Fallout 4. I’ve focused these builds heavily on roleplay and aesthetics rather than stats and equipment like in my previous entries. However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t viable at all! Here’s a link to Part 1 and Part 2 if you missed them!

So that’s it folks! Like I said earlier this will probably be the last entry to the series, I really enjoy Fallout 4 but doing any more builds for it would squeeze the fun out of it for me. As always I hope you found this article entertaining and helpful! Let me know what you think by leaving a comment! A like would also be super appreciated! Thanks for reading!
