5 Ways To Play: Fallout 4 (Part 2)

December 10, 2018 by Josh | JustASorcerer

Hey guys! The first segment I did on Fallout 4 seemed to be quite popular, so I’ll give you some more ideas for fun builds you can try! Here’s a link to Part 1 if you missed it!

#1 – The Nuclear Hammer


Description: If you enjoy glass cannon builds or a high-risk, high-reward playstyle, this build has something for you! Using a high power super sledge and having increased knowledge of nuclear materials, we can harness the true power of Radiation!

Key Perks: Nuclear Physicist, Big Leagues, Berserk, Isodoped, Nerd Rage, Ghoulish.

Suggested Weapons: Atom’s Judgement, Shem Drowne Sword

Suggested Armor: “Rad-Powered” armor (as many pieces as you can get)

Companions: Hancock or Strong

S.P.E.C.I.A.L Focus: Intelligence, Strength & Endurance

#2 – The Marine


Description: If you enjoy First Person Shooters and want to experience fallout 4 as such then look no further, this is the build for you. Highly defensive armor and powerful automatic weaponry. Get into the thick of the fight with high action gameplay!

Key Perks: Commando, Moving Target, Action Boy, Quick Hands, Toughness, Adamantium Skeleton

Suggested Weapons: December’s Child, Automatic Assault Rifle, Automatic Combat Rifle, Automatic Combat Shotgun

Suggested Armor: Marine Armor, Combat Armor

Companions: Maccready or Porter Gage

S.P.E.C.I.A.L Focus: Agility, Endurance & Strength

#3 – The Queen of Gasoline


Description: Do you like Fire? Do you REALLY like Fire? This build let’s you sizzle and fry your foes to a crisp up close and personal. If you remember Cook-Cook from Fallout: New Vegas then this build is essentially the female equivalent of him.

Key Perks: Big Leagues, Cannibal, Heavy Gunner, Solar Powered, Bloody Mess, Attack Dog.

Suggested Weapons: I got super lucky with legendary drops and got a Blazing Shishkebab as well as a Wounding Flamer.

Suggested Armor: “Incendiary” armor (as many pieces as you can find)

Companions: Dogmeat or None.

S.P.E.C.I.A.L Focus: Strength, Endurance & Charisma

#4 – The Ghost


Description: Sometimes dodging a firefight is the only way to go, but what about going completely unnoticed altogether? This build is for those of you who prefer stealth ops and becoming one with shadow.

Key Perks: Sneak, Covert Operations (Magazine Perk), Cloak & Dagger, Mister Sandman, Ninja, Ace Operator (Nuka World), Night Person

Suggested Weapons: Silenced Deliverer, Disciples Cutlass

Suggested Armor: Marine Wetsuit & Marine Tactical Helmet, Shadowed Leather Armor w/ “Chameleon” Legendary effect if possible.

Companions:  None

S.P.E.C.I.A.L Focus: Agility & Perception

#5 – The Marksman’s Wife


Description: What if Carla escaped? What if she was sold and shipped far east by the legion and escaped in Boston? Surely dear Boone taught her a thing or two about sniper rifles? Right? Anyway, this is your traditional Sniper Build, long range and high damage are your main focuses.

Key Perks: Sniper, Penetrator, Rifleman, Awareness, Killshot, V.A.N.S.

Suggested Weapons: 308. Combat Rifle, Gauss Rifle, 50. Cal Hunting Rifle

Suggested Armor: Courser Uniform, Military Cap, Patrolman Sunglasses

Companions: Macready or Cait

S.P.E.C.I.A.L Focus: Perception & Agility

    1. It’s really fun to use, you can completely avoid V.A.T.S. and full-auto weapons are stupidly strong with certain Legendary effects like “Wounding”. Adds to the role play element too cuz yeah, you’ll probably bleed out from getting shot a dozen or so times 😂 anywho, thanks for reading!

    1. Thanks! I really looked into it as I was writing it, it’s genuinely possible the woman Boone shot wasn’t actually Carla. I’m planning on doing more throwbacks to previous games in part 3!
