Anyone still playing Fallout 4?

Thinking I might start a new playthrough tonight. What kind of characters do you play with? Also what upgrades are on your must have list and which ones are a waste of a level up?

My character is a mad scientist: she specialises in drugs and explosives!
I just started playing it for the 1st time, so I don't think I can really help about the best upgrades. It depends of your style: I'm an item horder so Locksmith and Scrapper are must-have for me. And the Blacksmith perk: I was dying for a sniper rifle and so happy when I found out I could just build one.

I'm more a "try and be sneaky" type so I've got a few things to help that now. Also armorer - because I'm inevitably not sneaky and get shot. A lot.

Don't go near Revere Satellite Array early - currently being murdered by super mutants there... might go back to that mission when I'm a higher level!

Good to know, I met some of those once, got lucky, and don't care to meet them again any time soon!
Right now I'm very low on ammo, so next time I log in that's my top priority...

Having a break from it whilst Destiny 2 is new. Soon as I run out of D2 love, it'll be back to Fallout 4. It's a giant of a game.

Still avoiding the main storyline and dedicating myself to increasing my power armour collection.

As well rejigging settlements which were looking a bit too Minecrafty - random buildings floating off a single wall kinda thing.

May eventually get back on track but having too much fun wandering around with MacCready.

Avoid Gunner encampments until later - those assaultrons smart!

Upgrades - scrapper perk is useful for getting hard to find items.

And cause I'm a squirrel "strong back" at its highest level you can fast travel overencumbered.
So load me up with junk and whizz back home.

I played through recently for the first time in a while - I did a melee character for the first time! I did allow myself grenades/mines as well, but no guns of any sort. I did stealth/VATS combat style rather than tanking it in power armor. Robots in particular were quite difficult to fight because of not being able to target specific parts of them in VATS when you have a melee weapon...
It was brutally difficult for the first few levels and I relied quite heavily on companions, but then it got really good later on grin

So I restarted again and am now a stealthy sniper —until my companion runs in and causes havoc—

I love this style - I’ll stay out of the way and pick them off, then go looting! My stimpak use has decreased dramatically!

Also, I’m rocking a Halloween name-change, it’s the OP here smile

No, plan on playing it again, when the price of the new GOTY version comes down in price. I've just played through all of Fallout 3 though, achievement hunting mostly.

Overly keen companions - I still regret giving Nick that missle launcher.

Seriously dude you're gonna shoot that thing INSIDE the train car!?! At the raider 2 foot in front of me!?!

Having said that they seem a bit more with it than the Skyrim bunch - shoot spell - Lydia gets in way - sigh - reload last save.

Me! Started a few weeks ago after over a year! Downloaded the mod that unlocks the dogmeat plus another companion slot - “let’s go boy!” Means I’ll never leave him behind again!
Am currently collecting teddy bears - though couldn’t disturb the two in the shamrock tap house playing chequers with bottle caps

i still play. I am stuck in a few places. There was a mission where I had to report to Paladin Danse, but he's not responsive, only wants to be my companion. WTF?

Anyone else getting the psychadelic puddles and creepy eyes glitch?

Abernathy went a weird hellscape of neon blue during a rainstorm.confused

Looks like a solution is being worked on, but you know Bethesda.....
