Fallout 76 Character Builds
Fallout 76 Character Builds.
Hello, welcome to my build guide! That featured build you see up there is an example build for a heavy weapons user in power armor; Revenant can be swapped out during solo play (probably for Rejuvenated), likewise Lone Wanderer can be swapped out for team perks. This post will be a bit different from most other builds featured on this site, instead of focusing on a single build I will be analyzing how I feel character optimization should be approached as a whole in Fallout 76. …

Changes: I’ve re-evaluated intelligence and now believe that we need at least 3 this gives us access to the double repair on weapons and armor. This actually improves our damage since over-repaired items deal more damage. For the most part we cab have makeshift warrior on to save our weapon durability, but I think I want to have the ability to go for a heavy melee damage option involving radicool, nerd rage, and unyielding ar…
Shotgun / Grenadier / Self-sufficiency Build
After many hours of playing in the FO76 B.E.T.A., this is a build that came to mind that I would like to try out on one of my characters. I love shotguns, but I also love explosives…WHY NOT BOTH! For sake of layout and ease of reading, I will share my thoughts in progressive order from left to right through all perk cards in the S.P.E.C.I.A.L.
Shotgunner, Expert Shotgunner, Master Shotgunner, all LVL 3:
I think this is pre…
Uh uh. I know what you’re thinking. “Did he fire five shots or only four?” Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .308 hunting rifle, the most powerful rifle in the low level wasteland and would blow your head clean off, you’ve gotta ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk?
Build Idea – In a Nutshell…
Full disclosure – I built this character guide for a frien…
About the build: I wanted to build something that takes some account into level with it as I went along. I don’t want to get to level 50 and realize i need 20 perk cards and have to make it to 70 before I finish. I also wanted to know roughly how tanky I could be by the time I finished. I put together a google doc with calculations to determine DR/ER at all levels depending on traits taken. I missed a few traits as I didn’t use them. I am willing to share it in view only to allow pe…
The Unstoppable Force – A Detailed Guide
Hello fellow Vault Dwellers! Do you like big guns? How about power armor? If you want to wield the greatest destructive force in all the wastelands, then grab your pip-boy and put on your big boy pants, we’re about to get serious!
** Update in Process **
Unlike previous version of Fallout, we are now able to change out perk cards on the fly! So before you flame me for not including various perk cards in the stated bui…
I used to be of the opinion that explosive shotgun builds were the best combat build in Fallout 76, but lately I feel that many other weapons can compete just fine (as long as they’re bloodied/junkie’s/furious explosives…). Still, shotguns are an incredibly powerful weapon and I feel this build can bring out their greatest potential. I’ll go through each perk choice and explain my reasoning before going on to equipment, and by the way.. thanks for reading~
This is a highly mobile medic build that utilizes high agility and charisma to fly around the battlefield and keep teammates up while offering some support.
Blocker is big for pvp as it greatly reduces melee damage. You may want to replace it with a carrying perk while out exploring.
Crack shot helps with the run and gun style that this build utilizes. Refractor just offers some extra energy resistance. Grenadier is also a great perk if you like to utilize explosives m…
To My Fellow Dwellers,
After playing nearly every hour of the PC BETA, and much time in reflection, I have put together a build that I feel will serve me well as a predominantly solo player. I looked over a lot of the other character builds on various websites and they all seemed to lack sufficient versatility for my play style or neglected access to key parts of the game by trading off Intelligence for heavier-hitting options. Additionally, while it is great to throw out a bunch of random Stat…
LAST MAN/WOMAN STANDING
This build uses Serendipity & Nerd Rage to give you a significant buff when at low HP. Coupled with all the damage resist and damage reduction perks you get it makes you a super tank when your health drops below a certain percentage, making you the Last Man/Last Woman in every moshpit!
Blocker makes all melee attacks do 45% less damage to you
Suppressor gives a huge damage reduction that works well against slow hard hitting mobsattack
Passive 20% less damage taken …

OK GUYS, WELCOME TO THE END OF THE WORLD AND BLAH BLAH BLAH NO ONE CARES.
I’M HERE TO UPGRADE YOUR PATHETIC VAULT DWELLER WEAK BODY INTO A REAL MACHINE OF WAR. SOME PEOPLE JUST WANT TO WATCH THE WORLD BURN, I PREFER BURNING IT MYSELF.
Bad Buddy, a Buddy who is also Bad.
This set up using two handed melee but you can easily switch to Unarmed, which Min/Maxed will more than likely be the strongest End game (or one handed, but don’t hope too much.)
Being a Strength (STR) build, it helps a bit with carrying (+70 carry wt with 15/15 STR). Not only this but if you don’t yet know Melee appears to be the highest damage and best pvp builds atm.
There are drawbacks, as in snipers and rifle men can just kite from afar (lim…
Note: This build was heavily influenced by Battlin’ Jack’s level 50 build and is basically a shotgun version of his build with minor changes here and there to suit my playstyle. The build assumes we can hot-swap for crafting rank 5 weapons (Gunsmith 5) / exotics / etc (hence Intelligence 5) and can hot-swap for lockpicking / hacking / everything in between.
I may update the build as new perk cards are fully revealed or may ditch it altogether if shotguns turn out to be pure garbag…
Many of these builds lack a number of usability features. You will see people stacking everything to obtain maximum damage for melee or ranged damage but, FO76 is about maximizing utility and quality of life. Nearly all mobs can be killed with little effort with the right gear and build so, reaching maximum levels of DPS is not needed. This build is tested at Level 135 and continues to be what I use today and there is not a situation I cannot deal with. From Scorch Queens, to fallout zo…
