That could be it. I showed up late and he was dead when I got there. A few people were waiting around, I think to see if anything would happen.

Only 28 more overseer ranks til I get my pink power armor. Now if only they would make non-skin paints applicable to T65

I strongly disapprove



During Fasnacht events I always see people not in power armor jump on top of roofs, like they had a jetpack.

Can I have a jetpack without power armor? Or is that some other thing they're using? Because I'd love to jump onto roofs.

e: while I'm asking, does anyone have tips for the final quest, specifically how to kill the drat cargobot to get a nuclear keycard? It moves fast on the map, and when I reach it, it then zooms away at the first shot so fast that I can't land any more shots... it's a pain in the rear end, I swear I tried 20 times but never managed to kill it

You can have a Jetpack for the Secret Service Armor, specifically for the Chest. It owns but unless you have 2 leg pieces with 50% fall damage reduction you WILL die a lot before you master the art of jetpacking around.

For the cargo bot, aim for one of the thrusters. It will remain more or less stationary once one or two of them are severely damaged and can be picked off easily after that. Or go full on Rambo with a Minigun, LMG, Gatling Laser. Anything with a high fire rate drops those things like flies. My Gauss Minigun basically melts them and the 3 vertibirds out of the sky. Plus, you really don't need the quest. The whole thing is also a not very rare random encounter. Farm them whenever you see them. I'm currently holding 40+ key cards.

It is kinda buggy depending on where you are on the map they can fly way way way outside any weapons range up to the sky hitbox. For example down in ash heep is will fly so high at one point you have to use the elevator to get to the very top of the giant excavator to even shoot at it. And if it decides its time to run there's a chance it can out fly you even fast traveling infront of it.

So pretty much just chase after it and hope for the best, you may want to use some kind of automatic weapon just so you can shoot as many times at it while you can.

That's 40+ pounds of nuclear keycards. Are you really using them all?

Marsupial helps too.

Your Daily Tato would be a good name for a home gardening blog or something.

Yeah, this is mostly marsupial. From what I've seen nearly everyone over level 50 has marsupial. It's enough to easily get on 1 story roofs which can usually also get you to the roof of two story houses.

Speaking of mutations, how often does the stock change at the Enclave? Been trying to get twisted muscles and they never have it.

Tried server hopping? Before player vending was a thing I did just that and got all mutations I wanted in 3 hops.

Or, and that will definitely be cheaper, check player vending machines. Going rate is between 300 and 600 for a serum, anything above that is people trying to bullshit you.

You could also just buy the plans but that will cost you a lot.

You want to go full on Melee?

Speaking of which. I'm a one or two handed melee fighter for my raider character. Did I make a mistake taking the Twisted Muscles mutation? Is that just pure melee, no weapons at all (besides brass knuckles-type weapons)?

Sounds cool! I have 5 int but that's mostly for perks, I don't mind having it reduced to 1 for other purposes. I don't have the starched genes perk or room in my standard loadout for it though... Guess I will have to get a couple more levels and remember to equip it before taking radaways.

Now to actually get it... I got a grand total of 1 mutation in more than 60 hours of gameplay and I don't feel like playing mutation lottery or paying half my caps stash for an enclave serum so I guess I have to hope to find a player vendor machine that has it

Good, even with Class Freak equipped the effects of TM on accuracy with guns is noticable and annoying.

Player vendors. I've found one today who sold all serums for 250 a pop. Stocked up in case I want to switch my build again. With 200 level ups in the bank experimenting is easy.

Flux should only be spent on ammo unless you like to run silos a lot.

Twisted muscles is all melee weapons and talons is only for unarmed weapons.
