The Builder

If you’re the type to collect everything and hoard tonnes of junk then look no further, this is the build for you! This build lets you gather materials and make anything your creative mind can muster. With this build, the world is quite literally what you make it!

As the builder you can take full advantage of settlements, power armor and heavy hitting melee Weapons. Collect all the scrap you can find and beef up your arsenal. Be sure to build a factory at your favourite settlement to give you plenty of caps and equipment.


The builder grew up with a fascination for taking things apart and putting them back in new and strange ways, you could call him a bit of an eccentric. He took up a job as a mechanic before being enlisted in the military as an engineer. His time in the US army shaped the builder into a true beast of a man, capable of hauling heavy tyres and equipment all across the battlefield to get them where they were needed. Once he’d finished his time in the army, he went back to his old mechanic’s job and one day he happened to be working on the car of a lawyer named Nora, the two got to talking and it became obvious the two liked each other a lot. Eventually they got married and had a child, it was right before the engineer was called to a veterans meeting that the bombs fell and his family were rushed into Vault 111.
