When I first played Fallout 4, it was one of the most addictive games I’ve ever played. It kept me coming back for more. So, if you are looking for a game with a lot going for it, this is it. If you’re looking for a game where you’ll be leveling up your character as you discover things and go from place to place, this is it. If you’re looking for a game that’s both story-driven and very action packed, this is it.
In Fallout 4 there isn’t any level cap. If you play long enough the game will let you max all of it out, if you like. So, if you want to continue to level up and be the total package in power armor and radiation resistant armor, this is for you. Sure, there are optional quests to do, but they aren’t very many and you really should do them some other time. Besides, what’s the point in doing them if you are already level capped and can do them any time?
The best perk in Fallout 4 is the perk called the Brotherhood, which gives you extra damage at a lower cost. This perk makes the leveling process fun again. The Brotherhood gives you perks at a steady rate, so you won’t feel like you’re missing anything. My favorite perk in the Brotherhood is called the Mysterious Stranger. It lets you temporarily raise your luck and gives you a few extra benefits while in combat.
Quests are also a good way to make leveling faster. When you find a quest on the map or not too far from your location there is a small icon that says, “quest available”. Clicking this will take you to that quest location so you can do the quests there. Some quests are better than others, so you should go ahead and do these whenever possible, but there aren’t very many quests in Fallout 4 that are extremely challenging.
The Vats are used to recharge radiation, food, and air cells in VATS. They are used in a few areas in the game, mainly as a way to refill your inventory and save time during combat. These special VATS items, called VAPsuits, can be obtained by doing side quests and completing challenges in the Fallout 4 add-on, The Pitt. The great thing about vats is that they can stack up, meaning you can have one on standby at all times. Since you get a free perk using them at certain times, you don’t need to use them often.
The next item in the line is a companion, whether it be a robot or an alien, that you can purchase in the add-on, FNV. Companions are great perks because you can boost your combat stats while letting your companion attack freely. However, companions can get tiresome if used too much because of how fast travel speeds through the Commonwealth. Make sure to make use of fast travel in and around the Commonwealth so you can make sure your companion isn’t stuck in a spot forever.
The final perk we are going to talk about here is charisma, a perk that allows your companions to deal more damage, receive larger bonuses, and provides them with increased stability. Without charisma, your companions in Fallout 4 won’t attack nearly as frequently as they could, and they won’t have nearly as much luck when trying to loot things. This helps if you aren’t using companions often because your character will just be sitting around doing nothing, but the benefit of charisma can be a huge difference if you like using combat tactics in the game.
So there you have it, all three of the perks required to make your character more powerful in the game. With these perks, your armor, weapons, and armor repair will be better, your inventory will be bigger, and you will be more powerful than ever before. Make sure to use armor repair, companion perks, and the new power armor to ensure that you are the best of the best in the wastes of the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout 4.
