I need help with weapons. Broke and lost
By - lldumbcloudsll
I know many people who experienced the same so here is my absolute pro tip:
Minimize micromanagement tasks like getting ammo or farming for junk. Use just melee weapons and set the emphasis for special perks on strenght and endurance.
you can regear and reskill later after you've found good gear and until you've progressed enough to understand the basics of Fallout 76.
Thank me later 😉
Dont stress too much. We all went through that. When i started i was afraid to just leave my camp as I would get mauled by dogs or mosquitoes😂😂. It will all pass. What level are you at right now?
33 as of now with a bow build lol
Hey thats not that bad. Hit me up and i can hook you up with some basic junk (make ammo) and stims. Gt: unboricuaencali
Do you have Fallout 1st?
Sadly I don't. I'm a seasoned fallout guy but this one was to strange for me to dish out that kind dough for something I would give up on.
Never fear, better weapons will come as you level up and gain experience. (I started with a plain old machete and a hunting rifle). At 33, I was still using a machete.
Wasn’t until about L45 I got a combat rifle and a legendary switchblade. BTW, you can take down a SB with a plain combat rifle. Takes a while, but it can be done :)
Carry on exploring, doing events, and following the questlines. You’ll get there :)
This is correct. I took my first SB solo with a Combat Rifle and a bunch of stims.
Wish I knew it back then XD, literally spent all my shotgun shell, 10 mm ammo and .45 ammo(submachine gun) and was down to my .308 hunting rifle, had about 100 bullets left and finally it died.
Need to use sneak(squat), vats and put a suppressor on your gun.
Not sure how far you are but if you can get the turbo fertilizer bombs do so. Plant 50 tatos, harvest with Green Thumb and regrow with turbo fert bombs 7 times, sell with Hard Bargain, this will get you 1400 caps a day. You can put down a few(5) small water purifiers and sell water also.
What the heck is a this lol.wherw do I get turbo fertilizer bombs from lol
you can buy a turbo fert plan with gold bullion - in the meantime look for little contraptions at player camps that look like a tiny cement mixer - they are rarely locked. just grab a few grenades from everyone you see. throw the grenade at harvested plants and the food will instantly regrow.
also be on the lookout for outfit plans like tactical marine helmet, civil war dress, witch costume, treasure hunter outfit, etc. you can make clothes with cheap scrap like cloth and rubber and sell to vendors.
Holy crap I never thought of selling and making clothing. I keep farming events for theses said plans but rarely get anything good. I'll keep plugging away
if you search the sub for halloween costume spawn and marine tactical helmet spawn you can learn where to farm them.
Google fallout 76 builds. Base your build on a good one. Profit.
I can mod what weapons you got when I am on. I'm on late night pst and weekends all day Gt: JoeA602
You can add me HOOKINLMB, I can make or mod armor and weapons, get you stimps pack etc.
Dang I tried with a legendary musket that does 50 percent more damage on animals but it eventually just left and I couldn't do it. I was close but soloing is hard as fudge in this game.
I levelled prior to One Wasteland, when it was possible for terribad players named "Alysandir" to outlevel mobs and grind them over and over. But with 1W, they now level with you. Ugh.
So the only thing I can offer is my one saving grace: VATS.
VATS is basically EZ mode for the game. I figure it's intended for losers like me who have physical disabilities and couldn't hit the broad side of The Wayward at 10 paces. It doesn't work well for all playstyles - you can pretty much forget using power armor or most heavy guns using VATS - but if you're okay with being a sniper/rifleman or stealth commando, it is a revelation. With VATS and the right build, even a sad murder hobo like me can be the guy who wipes the floor with all the baddies.
Here's what you need to know:
* High perception helps immensely with VATS.
* Concentrated Fire helps you pick and choose what part of the mob you want to hit. Head shots are extra damage.
* Gun-Fu, even one star, will auto-move you to the next target in VATS. All you have to do is pull the trigger and hear the lamentations of their women.
* VATS dovetails very well into the stealth commando lifestyle.
Ask me anything you like and I'll try my best to answer. Otherwise, good luck on your journey.
See I never thought of that this sounds more the way for me to go as I solo alot. I'm already a rifle bow build with immense luck. I always spam vats anyways to check the area. And get this I walk around with binoculars in my hand lol
Luck really only helps with critical hits. For VATS, you want Perception.
