    God dammit I need a steady supply of power armour

    Even after (very late game)
    Spoiler:
    can I still find people there, I went back and 4 had respawned but they just flee'd the whole time.

    Are the outcasts worth keeping around? that will keep me supplied for a while

    Also how can I keep the shiskebab and power sledge repaired

    also plasma weapons

    also where can I find more questlines

    Repair and Lockpick are the two nicest skills in the game

    Well Small Guns is nicer than Repair because Repair is for Small Guns

    and Explosives comes in next because well it should be obvious

    So VATS is obviously for people who aren't good at aiming because it sucks up ammo and you can't use it at any good distance

    but shit, the camera following the bullet into the Super Mutant's cranium which then proceeds to explode is worth it

    The whole DC Warzone area is pretty sweet once you're level 8 or 9 though. Super mutants are pretty easy after level 6 and even the brutes and masters aren't that tough by 8/9.

    I just got a super sledge last night. 8-)

    No, you just aren't using them right because you suck. Take, for instance, the 10mm SMG:

    Bob and weave in to close range, queue up VATS, point gun at head(preferably not your own), kill stuff dead. good and dead.

    Lather, rinse, repeat as necessary.

    you guys probably just suck

    i love assault rifles because 3 rounds to the head kills almost anything, including super mutants

    at least with commando and a non-terrible small guns skill

    I like hiding around corners with an assault rifle and just ripping peoples' heads off with VATS as they come around.

    Also popping super mutants in the head, because their heads are very large.
