Guide to build a character

In Fallout 4, building a character is dependent upon a person playing the game as each person will have his own approach.

Players can build a perfect character using SPECIAL stats. Building a perfect character will enable players to cruise through any hard and challenging situation in the game, thanks to Gamepur that has provided the guide.

It must be noted that that 'Vault 111' is used to change player stats. The Perks are affected by the skills.

Players searching for the Mysterious Stranger perk will need Luck stats of 4. Below are the stats that a player will need to build:

  • Strength - 3
  • Perception - 4
  • Endurance - 3
  • Charisma - 6
  • Intelligence - 6
  • Agility - 2
  • Luck – 4

Players must note that it is essential for a character to have a little bit of all the SPECIAL stats. The game mechanics and the elements of the game will be affected only when it comes to what SPECIAL stats is needed and how much.

Players will have the chance to earn extra SPECIAL points and unlock extra specific perks when they use these character stats in the game, the report noted.

Players must focus on bettering the Charisma and Intelligence stats, as they help in hacking restricted areas and opening new dialogue options.

To better a character's Lockpicking skills, Perception stats must be increased.

Once the character is ready to head into the game, it completely relies on the player and his/her style. The usage of companions must be according to the SPECIAL stats of the character.
