Just one week after a successful launch of Fallout 4, many gamers are scratching their heads at Fallout 4’s lack of tutorial for the games more intricate additions. Though fans of the Fallout series will feel right at home with much of the game’s features, there are five important things you need to know before your start.
5. Know Your Perks
When you first begin to level your character up, you may do what many have done initially and level up your first level of perks before recognizing that you are able to work your way down (or up) the scale without maxing out your first level. This will come in handy when you are building up your communities and need to create stores and traders. You may have only given yourself a few charisma points at the beginning and quickly discover you need the “local leader” perk to further your homestead.
4. Collect Everything
In the previous versions of Fallout you could sell junk for additional bottle caps, but the junk itself had no other usage outside of that. In Fallout 4, everything you collect can serve a purpose such as scraping for additional metal, wood or various parts required to add to what you build. Even the seemingly purposeless overdue books you find can be turned in to the library for awesome rewards.
3. You Aren’t Stuck With Dogmeat
You can swap out your dog for people or even Cogsworth right from the beginning. Depending on the mission you are going on, you may want to consider who you are bringing with you.
EDITOR’S NOTE: If you want to equip your companions with something besides their default weapon, give them the weapon of your choice with the appropriate type of ammunition.
2. Store Your Junk in Workbenches
Though you can’t share your items from different locations, you can unload all that you scavenge into your community’s workbench for safe keeping. These items can be dropped off or picked up as you please, and you can carry them personally to other site’s work benches to assist in building harder to find objects.
