Fallout 4 Build – The Laser Lover

The Laser Lover

Alright, this one is a personal favourite. I think laser weapons are really really cool. This was the build I made when I first finished Fallout 4 and I’ve remade it twice over.

The idea here is to drive up your critical damage with energy weapons, you can achieve this by combining all ranks of Tesla Science Magazine with the Boosted Photon Agitators for laser rifles as well as the Better Criticals Perk and the Energy Weapons Bobblehead. You can even take full advantage of the Overdrive Chem and do Critical Hits outside VATS.

Backstory:

The Laser Lover grew up in a relatively normal family and had a particular interest in science and like many boys of his age, Action figures. The laser lover would pre-order copies of Tesla Science magazine well before they were released and developed something of an obsession with science into his college years and into his adult life. Excelling in the field of laser technology, he was eventually noticed and recruited by the US army as a weapons engineer. He helped create and maintain some of the mightiest laser technology the world had ever seen. After his time in the military however, he dedicated his spare time to continue his tinkering on lasers and ran into a bit of trouble with the law. He’d never been arrested before and when he was assigned a lawyer he met the love of his life, Nora. After the case was resolved and the Laser Lover allowed to walk free, the pair went out for many drinks together and eventually became partners and had a child. Life was good for the Laser lover until the fated October day when the bombs fell  and he was rushed into Vault 111.
