Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20hello everyone and welcome to myultimate beginner's guide for fallout 76if you've got hundreds of hours in thegame then you probably don't need thisvideo but if your news for gain orstruggling a bit near the beginning thenthis guide could prove invaluable to youthere's a lot of info in this video so Iwill be leaving detailed timestamps inthe description and I'll also put upWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40something on screen now to let you knowthe general categories I'll be coveringand when they show up so that you canskip to any you particularly need helpwith or skip over anything you alreadyknow the ins and outs of without anymore delay let's get on with the guideto start off we're going to talk aboutleveling up once you're out to vote 76Watch at: 00:40 / 01:00you'll have reach level 2 and be able tohead into your menu and see a promptover bottom to level up when you levelup there are two key factors you need toconsider special and perk cardsfirst off let's go over to special asthis is what you'll be prompted to pickbefore you even get to the perk cardsthere are seven different stats chooseWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20from an special strength perceptionendurance charisma intelligence agilityand luckeach of these stats improves yourcharacter in some way and can be raisedto a maximum of 15 in total you willhave 49 points to spread throughoutthese and each of them is set at 1 tobegin although you could spread theseWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40evenly and end up with 8 in each starit's worth trying to fit them to how youwant to play so let's go over what eachstar actually does strength is probablyeven most straightforward of all thesestats it increases mainly on unarmeddamage by 5% per rank and also grants anextra five pounds carry weight with eachpoint added into it obviously this makesWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00it incredibly helpful if you're planningon not using guns all that much but italso is useful for every character outthere as carry weight can be a bit of anissue in this game so every boost youcan get really pays for itselfperception is most notably useful forincreasing your chance to hit when usingbatsthat's the vault-tec assisted targetingsystem is essentially an auto aimWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20feature built into the Fallout franchisein Fallout 76 it takes place in realtime literally just being an auto aimwith a percentage based chance to hitthe higher your perception of SAP thebetter chance you will have to hit meup to a maximum of 95% this is veryhelpful if you're not the best when itcomes to combat as you can instead haveWatch at: 02:20 / 02:40the game do the aiming for you thatspace combat can potentially be quitestrong so a high perception certainlyholds merit even if you are a good shotplenty of enemies in the game move fastsome missing shots will occur in free8thadditionally the perception stat willhelp you to detect enemies on yourcompass at the bottom of the screen youhave a compass which also shows youWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00symbols for nearby locations and reddots for enemies the higher yourperception the further these red dotscan show up this is a minor advantagefrom a star but it's still somethingworth knowing font of endurance nowwhich is the start based around makingyou tougher each point of endurancegives you five additional hit points andalso increases your disease resistanceWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20extra health is fairly obvious as to itshelpfulness the more hit points you havethe more damage you can take admittedlyit's not a huge increase per rank but itstill can make a difference but diseaseresistance foe can almost be morehelpful in fallout of 76 you can catchdiseases in various way be a breathingWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40toxic fumes being hit by disease enemyor even just going for a swim thesediseases are temporary debuffs reducingstats on your character unless you curethem with antibiotics or a disease curethese items are some more plentiful sodon't fret too much about diseases butkeep in mind for the high endurancecharacter bleed through less diseaseWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00cures then allow endurance one finallyendurance also reduces the drain fromyour action points while sprintingallowing you to sprint for longercharisma is one of the more interestingstats in the lineup the most simple partabout it is that it improves prices whenbartering appalachia is populated withrobotic vendors with whom you can tradeWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20if you have a higher charisma scale thanthe prices for buying will be lower andselling will be increased making iteasier to keep your caps high for everythree points in charisma you can alsoshare a point worth of perk cards withyour team now I'm fully aware thatsentence probably doesn't make muchsense on its own so let me explain ifyou have your charisma free you canWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40share a one point per card with theplayers on your team meaning each playereffectively has about per card equipif you have a charisma of six then youcan share either a one point or a twopoint per hold with your teammateslikewise nine points of charisma meansup to a three point part car can beshared twelve charisma relates to a fourpoint per card shared and the maximum ofWatch at: 04:40 / 05:0015 charisma means you can share any percard with your team even an axe toutfive point card this does make charismamost useful in rakes are free howeveryou can only share a single card whatthis effectively means is you can giveyour entire team a bonus perk cardproviding you've got the charisma for itthis does make charisma most useful inranks are free however you can onlyWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20share a single card so even if you havea maxed out charisma stat you can'tshare five different single point perkcards due to the way the system works Iwould recommend every character playwith at least a charisma of free as itmakes you a more valuable member of ateam as you can always share a perk cardcharisma also is listed as affectingrewards from group quests however I'veWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40not been able to find anything on whatthis exactly does as current accountsseem to indicate it doesn't actuallychange in a thing on a noticeable scaleI would assume it's to do withcompleting quests help other groupleader but that's honestly not somethingto worry aboutintelligence is on next stat and onethat will prove most helpful to those ofyou who want to craft your own gear whenWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00crafting weapons or armor the amount ofcondition and durability they have isdirectly related to your intelligencethis means but gear crafted by a highintelligence character will break slowerthan gear crafted by a low intelligenceone additionally you gain more junk whenyou scrap down items if you have ahigher intelligence making it handy forgaining a little more junk ourpenultimate stat is AG leti and thisWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20both increases our pool of action pointsand boosts our ability to sneak thestealth aspect is fairly straightforwardif you want to be a self based characterjust put more and more points intoagility until you feel happy with it asfor action points you gain an additionaltemper each rank of agility these areused both in sprinting and wasps usingWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40vats meaning agility improves both howlong you can sprint for and makes thatbase combat something you can engage inmore often finally we have luck whichdetermines how quickly you fill yourcritical hit bar and also impacts forcondition and durability of items youlooped this start works as the otherside to intelligence if you want tofocus on using equipment youWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00yourself intelligence is better but ifyou want to use items you pick up as yougothen luck is the better choice as forthe critical hit bar this is somethingthat relates to that space combat eachhit you score in vats will build up thisbowl which results in a stored criticalhit you can use this critical at anytime during that space combat for asignificant amount of bonus damage a bigWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20advantage to high lock characters isbecome rapidly gained back critical hitssometimes even chaining them rapidlywithin a single fight that's it for whateach of a special stats does now to talkabout which ones you will likely findmost helpful right at the start of agame I tend to put my first point or twointo strength extra carry capacity isuseful for any build out there and rightWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40at the beginning you may struggle alittle with ammo so the extra melee orunarmed damage is helpful even if youdon't plan on focusing on melee combatlater on depending on the kind of buildyou want to make you might want to focuson different combinations of special astraightforward melee build will likelygo high strength high endurance a snipermay well go for perception and agilityWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00self mailee would be strength andagility of that space combatant would beperception agility and luck and a powerarmor base squad leader would be highcharisma and intelligence if you arelooking for build ideas I've got a wholeplaylist of builds I've made right hereon my channel but you can check out byclicking the icon in the top right whatoften matters most when selectingWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20special and working on your build is Vperk cards so let's take a look at thosenow fallout 76 has a different perksystem to any of the previous games inthe franchise this game focuses on acard and loadout based system whichessentially means you have a growingdeck of perk cards to choose from andWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40there's a limit to how many you can haveequipped depending on what your specialsare to keep things simple let's take alook at a perk card and break down thedifferent elements of it here we have aperk card in the bottom left we see aletter corresponding to which of aspecial stats it relates to as well as acolor which does the same thing we alsohave the title of the card text of whatWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00it does and nice little picture to goalong with it in the top left we havethe cost of a card this ranges between 1and 5 this relates to how much of arelevant special it takes up to haveequipped for example a charactersix strengths could have six differentstrengths perk cards clipped if they allcost one point however they could onlyWatch at: 09:00 / 09:20equip two cards with a free point costthe higher your special whatever morecards you can have equipped the finalparts of a card is in the bottom rightshowing the rank each star is its ownrank cards can have only a single rankor multiple ranks up to five ranking upa perk card will increase how powerfulis but it will also raise the cost of aWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40card so don't just blindly rank up everycard you have instead to make sure youcan actually still afford to equip thestronger variant now that we've goneover what the per card is and what it'smade up of let's talk about how youacquire them here there are twodifferent ways each time you level upyou not only get to raise a specialpoint but you also get to pick a perkcard at each level new perk cards becomeWatch at: 09:40 / 10:00available to unlock but you do have tounlock a card on each level up meaningyou can't actually save the levels forlater on locked cards take your time toconsider which perk cards you want tounlock as you don't want to waste alevel up on something you won't use ifit can be helped as well as choosing percards yourself you will get per cardpacks as you play you gain a perk cardpack at levels four six eight ten andWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20then every five levels after meaninglevel fifteen twenty twenty-five and soon each time you open a perk card packyou get for random perk cards these workis a good way to supplement the cardsyou've selected yourself but shouldn'tbe relied on too heavily as they arerandom when working on your own buildyou want to focus on both four specialWatch at: 10:20 / 10:40and the perk cards you want to obtain ifyou wanted to max out damage with normalsomatic rifles then you would need atleast nine points in perception to fitin the trio of maxed out right from andperk cards due to this you want toconsider both which perk cards and whichspecial you want to go for as you levelup otherwise your build could end up notworking now this might sound a littleworrying if you're new to the game andWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00think you could mess up early choicesand not be able to play the game youwant to do that I would say it's okayeverything will be fine after you'vereached level 50 you can continue to uselevel ups to unlock new perk cards oryou can use them to move special pointsaround taking away a point from one statand adding it to another this means thatWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20even if you do mess up your special abit early on you will eventually be ableto rectify itthat's it for leveling now let's focuson what to do when you're actuallyplaying the game starting off withexploration to kick things off I'll tellyou what I do immediately after leavingWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40vote 76 so here we are outside of book76 this is where you'll be where youvery first bleep the game and firstthing I'd advise doing is running downthis little stairway here and don'tworry about the robot he will have stuffto say to you but it's not too importantinstead run down the next set again andWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00this person right here will have amachete on them take that equip it itwill be your melee weapon this early onwill be very handy just a nice littleearly melee weapon to get you startedbecause it's a whole slashing popping ablue balloons perfect just what we wereWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20afternow instead of carrying on the path yougoing I'll avoid running back up to thevault and heading over to this corpseover here as well this lady you willfind some point free eight rounds and apipe pistol that then gives you a rangeweapon to use as wellwell now notice fees here yet liveliberator sorry Mach zero and yet theyWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40will spot you after a little while butyou can run down to them and it's fairlyeasy to take him out for me it will onlytake a single swing for you it might betwo or three swings but these are notparticularly challenging enemiesespecially early on on them you can seefusion cells still scrapped you'll getWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00like some basic stuff from themadditionally make sure in every locationthis is just a general tip make sureyou've actually cleared out all theenemies before you start checking inthings too looked first thing you wantto look though is this first-aidcontainer you'll see here this serverright away which reduces rudder rate RAdoration radiation and some dirty waterWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20not the best stuff but it's always worthgoing in a first-date container theitems are missed will be randomized butthey're worth looking in you also have acouple of suitcases here which willnormally have bits of junk in them whichright at the start of a game just pickup any junk you have now if you continuedown you have this little car personaldead soldier hereWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40this is an explosive cream and you cansee there a frag grenade get yourselfsome early explosives that you can useon tougher enemiesadditionally there are more liberatorshere for us to take out so go and killthem as an additional quick tip asprinting attack actually does moredamage than a stationary one oh just hitthe core skin so feel free to charge atWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00the enemy and then swing at them insteadof just walking up to them stopping andthen attacking so you can get the habsprinting attacks you'll do a lot betterat melee combat and keep an eye out theway you need to go if you think you'recleared out hit the Crouch button andokay still in caution so there is anWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20enemy about somewhere but I can't seethem anywhere too close if it saysyou're in danger be worried okay I'm ithidden now see if all is fine that's allthe enemy's dead so if we go back up tothis point so it's easier to work outwhere I'm going from this is the bottomof the little road herethere's first off a little military theWatch at: 14:20 / 14:40transporter here on the right a duffelbag normally has ammo in and on the leftand ammo boxnormally has ammo in it so that's earlybits of ammo you can grow up right thereand that's the majority of what you'llbe looking for then go backing yourselfbut on the down area here and thispostman corpse they tend to have aWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00couple of weapons on them I've also seendrugs on this guy which is pretty goodso here you can get yourself multipleweapons these are a little random as towhat they will be but well worth comingover to this responder corpse here andjust seeing what he's got on him nowcircle around always check buses busesare great cos yep often have suitcasesWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20with valuable junk see that's junk Ineed there's also this little footlockerhere there's some armor and more junkeven more junk in here ammo and a weaponin this duffel bag I'm not sure if it'sa guaranteed spawns have a weapon inthere but I've always had ammo in thereand then more junk in the suitcase soWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40all good stuff you'll likely want nowadditionally this law section here withthe van for Grafton still more placeswith junk in them toolboxes suitcasesallhandy stuff you might need then gobeyond them there's a little ammo boxhere so even more early ammo which isWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00something you can struggle with a bitand more containers of suitcases withjunk and even a little bubble gum thereisn't that cute now we're not done yetbecause there's even more ammo crates wewant to go into remember this littletransporter here well around this littleroad stop there's more stuffanother ammo box and then right next toWatch at: 16:00 / 16:19it another first-aid station look aboutsome dirty water dirty water is prettymuch more worst thing you can get in afirst-aid station or first-aid booksorry but it's better than nothing whenyou've just started out then up here aswell more dead soldiers and a more ammoboxes yeahheading this way is in fact the oppositeof Webber quest tells you to go but asWatch at: 16:19 / 16:40you can see it gives you a bunch of ammoand I even got some gunpowder on thatone so a very quick little segment onjust how to get more ammo at the startmore than anything else but I highlyrecommend popping down this way the gamewon't prompt you to do it but it's worthdoing Plus look at thatwelcome to vote 76 there you walk up youWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00see the little that billboard is myfavorite billboard out of any game Ithink prepare for the future with alittle Pip Boy it's beautifully done youcan romp back up towards a vault andthen carry on with the first quest whichwill take you down the right-hand sideor down that way down back towards theWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20robot anyway that's it back to recordedSarge with that very basic bit out ofway let's take a look at the map as awhole post-war West Virginia is splitinto six different sections first is Vforest this is both the largest parts ofa map and also where you start the gameWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40in the prima game guide there's a handylittle fret chart which also shows youthat this is by far the safest area outof a whole map at a low level you canquite happily walk throughout the forestwithout too much to fear most of theenemies you run across will be very lowlevel and you shouldn't have to fightagainst any of the toughest enemiesAppalachia has to offerI'd recommend sticking to exploringWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00joseph's forest until you are at leastlevel 10 as it is the largest part of amap there's plenty to exploreand keep you busy without also forcingyou to fight against impossible odds atany point when you do decide to exploreanother region you may be best placedheading north into the toxic Valley thisarea will have slightly higher levelenemies but it isn't generally too muchWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20to deal with if you're finding your timein the forest to be easy enough this isalso the smallest biome on the mapmaking it an easy one to fully exploreand a nice change from the vastness ofthe forest all the way down to the selfis V a sheep where is you can travelbetween the forest and toxic valuewithout too much concern traveling toWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40the a sheep requires a bit of prep firstnamely a gas mask this region gains itsname from a thick ash fur coats forskully causing damage and potentialdisease to anyone who enters the regionwithout something to filter is hell onceyou have yourself a gas mask you canventure down to this area however dokeep in mind you'll face them slightlytougher enemies here a fair few of whichWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00have missile launchers on them that sayit to be actually still a fairlymanageable location to visit as long asyou're careful and bring the right gearsomewhere you might struggle more withis V savage divide the region whichsplits Appalachia in twain can prove tobe quite challenging at times even onceyou've started brining through thelevels as you can see this has theWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20widest range of a fret chart in theprima guide and this makes sense thereare points I'm a savage divide where thedifficulty doesn't feel all thatchallenging you might run across ahandful of wolves or a small band ofsuper mutants on the other hand it's anarea where you may we'll end upencountering your first scorched beastalthough this could happen in the airsheep it's a near certainty in theWatch at: 19:20 / 19:40savage divide if you travel through thisregion be prepared not only forchallenging fights but also harshterrain the mountain ranges that make upa large amount of this region can makeit particularly tricky to navigate somuch so that you may want to get somepower on before trekking around here aspower armor reduces or full damage onceWatch at: 19:40 / 20:00you've made your way through the savagedivide there are two regions open to youthe Maya and the cranberry bog the Mayais ver slightly safer for two so let'sfocus on that one this region is aswampy marsh land filled with dangerfrom all angles wading through the watercan cause disease if you don't have ahazmat suit or pair armor and it's hometo some of the toughest enemiesWatch at: 20:00 / 20:20around such as Gulpers and my alertQueens if you're watching a beginner'sguide to this game then you probablywon't be heading here for a whilelikewise for cranberry bug is also anincredibly challenging location to faceoff against this is the final area youwill likely go to and it holds the mostchallenging enemies around including theWatch at: 20:20 / 20:40highest frequency of scorch beastsyou'll ever see the best advice I cangive about this region in thisparticular guide is to simply not gothere that's enough about what thedifferent regions are let's focus now onwhere you'll actually want to go in theearly game after you've done my firstall a my run the best thing you can dois try and complete the first couple ofmain quests these should direct you to aWatch at: 20:40 / 21:00responder quests as well as flatwoodsand Morgantown both areas better idealfor gathering equipment and aid itemsadditionally keep an eye out for eventsas you are traveling around completingthese early quests and events will giveyou plenty of aid items experiencepoints and even some plans that you canuse to unlock basic gear you'll need foryour camp speaking of which let's get toWatch at: 21:00 / 21:20talking about the camp itself this is aportable settlement you can buildwherever you like heading to yourpip-boy menu and there should be aprompt at the bottom tell you to deployyour camp although you can put thisanywhere it's worth think about wherethe best place to deploy a camp isideally you should try and place itsomewhere relatively safe with room toWatch at: 21:20 / 21:40gather resourceskeep an eye out for locations you likethe look of butter by water or around aresource node resource nodes can befound as you explore the land they'rerelatively easy to spot when you comeacross them however there are differenttypes basic resource nodes such as ironnodes on all that desirable onlygranting steel however a junk noWatch at: 21:40 / 22:00provides all sorts of different junkmaking in an ideal location to build acamp around when you first startbuilding your camp you'll notice thatthere's not much you're able to buildthis is because you need to unlock plansto build the majority of items plenty ofthe basics of these will be unlocked inearly quests especially in the sidequest for responders and can also beWatch at: 22:00 / 22:20bought from vendors additionally you canunlock more advanced power generators bycompleting powering up events in whichyou restore power to power plants andyou can often unlock various campobjects by claiming and defending publicworkshopsareas dotted around the map whicheffectively serve as temporary campsworkshops can be claimed by any playerWatch at: 22:20 / 22:40built up in the same way as a camp andwork well to gain resources due to thefact they always have multiple resourcenodes within their boundaries you willhave to defend these from attack on semiregular intervals and a quest will popup to identify when this is about totake place it's also important to notethat once you leave the server you losecontrol of a workshop so I wouldn'tadvise of nesting too much in them ifWatch at: 22:40 / 23:00you're only having a short play sessionback to focusing on the camp itselfalthough you can build a camp prettymuch any way you want the things you'lllikely want most are a stash box tostore your junk a bed in which to gainthe well-rested bonus granting you an XPboost and crafting benches which deservea whole section of their own before wedo that section one final part aboutWatch at: 23:00 / 23:20campsite neglected to put in the scriptso I'm adding in now you can move thempretty much whenever you want when youput down a camp it's not locked to thatlocation it just costs a small handfulof caps which is the currency of thegame in order to move it to a differentlocation don't worry if you put yourcamp down somewhere you don't like himfirst Troy you'll get to move itwhenever you like crafting is a big partWatch at: 23:20 / 23:40of the fallout 76 experience which meansyou'll want to know what each of thecrafting benches do and what you shoulduse them for in total there are sixdifferent crafting benches we'll belooking at starting off with the mostsimple the cooking station this islikely the first crafting station youWatch at: 23:40 / 24:00will encounter in your travels and itserves a very simple purpose making foodand drink when first sitting down at thestation you'll have a handful of recipeslisted that you can craft if you havethe right materials these are eithergoing to be meat or vegetable based andthe recipes will vary slightly dependingon which they are for meat based foodsall you generally need is an item ofWatch at: 24:00 / 24:20meat and a piece of wood if you aremaking fruit or vegetable based thenyou'll need the piece of flora a boiledwater and wood these items are allpretty easy to find wood is just abouteverywhere in the forest you can obtainit from fallen trees in log piles meatis taken from animal kills and plantscan be harvested from where they growWatch at: 24:20 / 24:40boiled water will often be found lyingaround where if you go and is alsosometimes given its quest rewardsadditionally you can gather dirty waterstraight from any water source and thenboil it down at a cooking station tomake boiled water to dirty water and awood will craft to make one boiled waterwhen gathering plants of meat there area couple of perks which can help we withWatch at: 24:40 / 25:00this green thumb' and butchers bountygreen thumb is incredibly simple as itautomatically gives you double theamount of plants you would normallygather without you having to do anythingother than just equip the perk butchersbounty is a little different as youinstead have to activate a search on ananimal corpse there will be a prompttest for what you should press on thisWatch at: 25:00 / 25:20on PC its spacebar is default and itspercentage based on if you actually getany more meat shot or not if you getmore meat there will be a perk animationan additional bit of meat will spawn inthe deck reaches inventory full at 76 isa survival game of sorts so havingenough food and drink to keep your ballstopped up is critical make sure you'reusing those cooking stations raw meatWatch at: 25:20 / 25:40and vegetables are good for you and havea chance to cause diseases so try andmake sure you're cooking up stuff nextlet's go to the weapons workbench thisis where you craft up modify and repairweapons want to make yourself a huntingrifle head here want to add a new sightor receiver to the gun you're using headto the weapons workbench had your weaponbreak on you in the middle of a fightWatch at: 25:40 / 26:00heads of a weapons workbench and you canrepair itproviding you've got the junk availablespeaking of junk you can also use thisworkbench to scrap down junk and weaponsall of the crafting benches other thanthe cooking station can be used for thisand I often find myself wandering aroundthe map looking for a bench where I canscrape down some weapons I found in theWatch at: 26:00 / 26:20hope of learning new mods armor benchesare very similar to weapon benches theyfunction in the exact same way butinstead for armorif you want to madhyama repair or craftsomething new than mrs vivent you headto as for learning the mods for weaponsand armor these can be found as plans asyou travel around however the way you'relikely on most of them is by scrappingWatch at: 26:20 / 26:40items scrap down a hunting rifle and youhave a chance to learn a mod for huntingrifles scrap a lever chess piece and youmight learn something for that armortype the more items you scrap the moremods you will learn next up on the workbenches we have chemistry stations atthese stations you can craft a varietyof healing itemsWatch at: 26:40 / 27:00such as stimpacks healing salves anddisease cures a fair few of the healingrecipes required not only learning therecipe by finding the plan normallyobtained by completing quests or eventsbut can also require having certain perkcards equippedsuch as chemists chemistry stations arealso useful for smelting all into usablejunk you can find or on the side ofWatch at: 27:00 / 27:20cliffs or down - is especially prevalentin the region of the ash heap you canalso craft gunpowder at a chemistryworkstation which is very helpful whenyou use a tinker's workbench thetinker's workbench has a couple ofprimary uses crafting ammo and makingbulk junk ammo is something you'lllikely run low on at one time or anotheralthough you can find it whilst elseWatch at: 27:20 / 27:40Annabelle if you're relying inparticular ammo types you will want tocraft some for yourselfballistic ammo will require steel leadand gunpowder to make all the basic mois unlocked and ready to craft meaningthat all you really need to focus onhere is getting enough materials tocraft the ammo itself energy MO andWatch at: 27:40 / 28:00various special types of ammo can alsobe crafted at this stationhowever the required components tend tovary a lot more than the standardballistic ramps as for bulk items thisis a way to change junk from individualpieces into groups as an example you canbulk up LED so your stash is filled withbulk LED instead of basic LED scrap thisdoesn't actually change things all thatWatch at: 28:00 / 28:20much however both LED and aluminum arelighter in their bob forms meaning youcan save a little space in your stashone final note

  2. I loved fallout 4, but its kind of dated now. I went back and tried to play it. Now that I've been playing ps5 since launch, im spoiled and I want games to look good. Ive thought abt 76 a hundred times. This video pushed me over the edge. Im gonna try it out. Great vid, mate.

  3. Can you increase legendary item levels? Or is it just only useable for a short time till you out level it? also when you see a ++ on a weapon is that increase to that weapon type or the one you have equipped or your best weapon you have in your pack?

  4. It is an okay game. missing almost all NPC interaction compared to F/O4. Doing it through X box game pass. LVL 25 after afew days. Gonna try today to sell all my pre-war currency at a "pre-war" vendor see if they take it. will try "white Plains resort. I read pre-war Vendors still accept it as currency. I'd rather not make into cloth. F/O4/3 and NV weigh heavy on me! LOL

  5. Something he didn't say and I just found out at lvl 40 from another video. You dont have to chose the same attribute and card. For example if you need 1 strength but don't have a card you want to buy strength you can get 1 strength point and maybe an intelligence card. Chose your special then sort cards by attribute you'll get the initial chosen special and the perk card of your choice. It's very handy later on when you need special points for in my case perception for the sneek but I need Baudelaire in strength but don't want the strength point.

  7. Here's my guide:

    Step 1: don't buy it.
    Step 2: live in the amazing reality where you didn't waste money on a unfinished scam of a game.
    Step 3: be happy.
    Step 4: …get on with your life.

  8. BTW, carrying capacity in this game is a joke. I generally am carrying easily 4 to 5 times my max limit, which drains my AP so when I'm running, I frequently have to stop to "catch my breath". The biggest problem with being overburdened is the inability to fast travel. I suppose one of these days I'll have to take the time to figure out how I can get my carry weight down below my max. Meanwhile…
