    In my later levels, already having melee 100, sneak 100, and lockpicking 100, and a high small guns, I think I'm going to raise my Heavy Weapons skill, because having power armor, but no goddamn super weapon to use with it is depressing

    That is the express reason why I chose to put points into Big Guns as I was nearly finished with Small Guns. Now I run around spitting death at high speeds

    I can normally trade other stuff in for all that lot, like plasma weapons etc, but if I turn up with outcast armor he says something like

    "Oh you brought those back for us, thanks, because I know you wouldn't be dumb enough to trade for them"

    Dirty robbing bastard.

    Gonna nuke his face.
    Oh no, misunderstood you. That's what I meant. Save all the power armor you get except for Outcast armor, 'cause douchey Mcdoucherton just takes it from you.

    I actually showed up there once with one of my followers in Outcast armour. I was amused, but nothing happened.

    so enclave doesn't show up in the vanilla game?
    In case nobody answered... Sorry the forum is slow for me today.
    Spoiler:

    Also, with the right perks the Winterized power armor gives 85 DR (the max) and good +stats (no -stats) and is basically indestructible - it's by far the best and only power armor you need.

    Otherwise Telsa armor is a little better, and has that cool electrical effect going on which gives it +1000 awesome points. :^:

    I hope the alien DLC has some awesome alien power armor that's super-light and like.. shoots fire at your enemies when they touch it... haha.

    I only use BoS armor because it has the +2 str, and I only wear power armor when I need help carrying more of my loot. In this game it's been all Chinese stealth suit, and last game it was all about the Ranger armor.

    yes they do and are in fact the main enemy in the game

    are you not that far in the story or what

    I'm at level 14 and haven't even finished the GNR radio quest yet. I suspect I might not be doing it right.

    This perk is design specifically so that you can ignore big guns at early levels where acquiring them is impractical but then rapidly boost them once they become a viable option.

    10 STR naturally is win :^: also Strong Back perk... I think my dude can carry about 390 lbs.

    Stealth suit + Shocksword pretty much kills anything in 1 hit too, except for reavers, overlords, etc... With that perk from Pt. Lookout that gives you +10 DR when you are standing still I have like 76 DR in the stealth suit too... lawls.

    Yep. The Ferry Boat guy marks off a few "sights" for you to see when you arrive at PL. The perk is obtained at one of those places.

    how hard are death claws supposed to be? I turned off XFO, gained 4 levels immediately (boy does XFO curb experience) and killed a death claw in about 3 seconds.

    EDIT: To clarify, this is basically vanilla FO3, minus some VATS dickery

    Deathclaws aren't really that scary. The dart gun makes it just ridiculously easy.

    I think I might hack and give myself Eugene (I did the quest and took the combat armor instead), mostly because I don't know of any other special miniguns, and I'd rather have a minigun than Vengeance. Just thinking about using a minigun while using the chinese stealth suit, it'd just be silly...

    The armor on the previous page just looks stupid, sure you look like a giant monster badass, but your arms stick out like little twigs...

    edit: about the weapons and such, I got a little off track and just started going through different links on the fallout wiki, ended up reading a lot about the old weapons and characters (Frank Horrigan and such), I haven't played the old games yet, but I'm really thinking I will, maybe next summer or something. But I approve of the old weapons being brought back, it's a nice idea as long as they don't completely eff up the damage

    that's a problem with power armor in general. I only look cool in Enclave Tesla armor when I'm wielding a big minigun that hides my tiny arms and hands

    I basically hate the power armor in this game. I only use it if I never ever want to sneak.

    Are you being sneaky enough when sneaking?

    It's not hard to get into a good firing position in power armour. Just don't expect to be able to creep right up behind someone reliably.

    Sometimes I want to sneak and sometimes I want to charge brazen into a den full of raiders with a big weapon blazing and a nigh-impenetrable suit of power armor, mowing down any stupid enough not to run at first sight of the gleaming metal-plated death.

    Also, goddamn isn't it the 3rd yet? Stupid time, moving so slow.
