LEON – Invisible Knifeman Assassin – lethal when cornered

” The closer you get to being a pro, the closer you can get to the client. The knife, for example, is the last thing you learn.” — Leon
Disclaimer: This is a high end build, is tricky to play, and requires end-game gear. I cannot say how effective it will be with low to mid range equipment.
Theme: Sneak through the enemies, locate the target, assassinate, disappear. If they spot you or corner you….unleash HELL.

The Intelligent Exterminator – PA Heavy (Energy) Weapons Bloodied Tank


Power armor – Mandatory
Heavy Weapons – this one is for energy weapons, but I’ll note variants for ballistic
Low health – yep, it’s blooded
Tank – low health tank, but hard to kill
PvE – not tested in PvP but I suspect too slow, too visible and too vulnerable
Carry Weight – Excellent


See em, shoot em. Move forward, shoot the next one.


Heavy Gunner Perks – 2/3 for each tier, offering 45% increased dama…

Bloodied PA Tank – skeleton – fill out to preference

Running West-Tek with a level 40 weapon and only 36 perk points (of 56):

Fallout76 – West-Tek Legendary farming – bloodied (44hp) – power armor – low level weapon

Build concept: Bloodied (20% health), Tank (no stealth, keep moving forward), excellent QOL (spare perks).

3 x 2-perks in Rifleman – Rifleman, Expert Rifleman, Master Rifleman – this is +45% damage, and for 6 perks this is the best outcome (you can also do 3-2-1 for the same…

Jackie Chan – a NON-Bloodied one-hit unarmed madman

Note: Any similarity to persons real or imagined is purely coincidental. The author has never even HEARD of anyone called Jackie Chan, nor watched about 5000 chop-sockey movies that may have featured a person considered to be somewhat similar.
Build concepts:



If you see the thing, run up to the thing, and hit the thing. Very hard. Fists are all very nice and all, but a variety of nice weapons await in the wasteland. Be creative…

Bloodied tank ranged/melee hybrid soloist – Experimental

NB: This is experimental, and may be a fail!
Goal: Bloodied tank – ranged and melee at will. Non-PA.
Disclaimers: Requires end-game gear, may not ultimately be viable. Testing. DO NOT FIGHT GHOULS. The radiation damage will one-shot you. It’s not nice.
Build focuses (focii?):

Defense (to be edited with exact figures)
Final stats


Tank. Forward momentum, no hiding, no backing off. The lower in health we get, the nastier we get.

The “Chillax” build – go anywhere, do anything, don’t worry bout a thing.

One day you’re in the Vault. It’s warm, there’s food, and you can dedicate your time to coming up with interesting ways to use spices, and then….
…Reclamation Day!
Wait what?
What do you MEAN you’ve been preparing for this for weeks? I certainly haven’t. Perhaps a little too much immersion in Grognak mags and maybe – MAYBE – the spices are not supposed to be smoked.
Dammit. Can we at LEAST limit the hassle?
Yes, yes we can. Meet the Chillax …

Bloodied Bitch – End-game non-PA bloodied TANK Rifle build (strong language!)

Couple of observations:

BOS Heavy Combat goes WAY higher than I had originally planned out. Nearly 900 DR and ER with my set, which includes a light arm, and the chest has not been 200% repaired yet. See here:

EDIT: Insert image doesn’t work. Here’s what I mean:
Red’s a great color.
Not so much if it’s a rash on your ass, but definitely looks good on armor. Best kind of red? BLOOD red. Someone else’s is best.
Meet the Bloodied Bitch. S…

The Bloody Bastard – Death in Power Armor

EDIT: Serendipity does not work with Power Armor. I’m going to test tankiness and report back. Some freed up perks if so! 🙂
Note: This build works best in X-01 power armor, with the Blackbird paint scheme and red headlight. There’s no benefit to the build or playstyle, it just looks ridiculously badass.
We will however be using the Emergency Protocols mod for power armor which is a flat 50% damage reduction when less than 20% health. This is critical to the build.
The idea behind th…
