Fallout 4: 9 Insane Character Builds You Need To Try

Why play as the boring all-rounder when you can play a ninja or serial killer instead?

If you've been wandering the Boston Wasteland from Day 1, your main Fallout 4 character is probably a behemoth by now; not exactly a Super Mutant Behemoth, but capable of taking one out with a single precise sniper shot or a piston-like smash from a Power Fist.

In other words, your Sole Survivor numero uno may be handling themselves a little too well by now, and you may be on the lookout behind their back for a new avatar with which to traverse the glorious wastes.

The simple option is to play as the all-rounder, but if you feel confident in your grasp on the game's mechanics, why not spice things up? How about a ninja who sticks to the shadows and strikes with fatal precision, or a heavy-handed meathead with an IQ of 40 whose graceless fists accidentally crush peoples' skulls each time he tries to punch them in the face?

The options are almost endless, so to help you decide, read on and take a long hard look at how to create the craziest Fallout 4 builds that'll offer up whole new ways to play the game.
