These are causing me all manner of problems, currently using sneakboys to avoid getting shredded by these brutes.

I've found if you get your small guns stat up pretty high, sneak around and shoot them with the combat shotgun.

I mostly use the flamethrower on animals, works quite well. Just wait 'til the deathclaws start appearing and you'll be wanting to see yao guai instead X-/

I seen a deathclaw right at the start of the game, thou it got stuck behind a fence so i killed it with ease and kept its claw as a trophy.

The Yao Guai though are a mare to kill, they scare the p!ss out of me..:eek:

what diff are you playing on ? theres no reason ( for me , no achvs ) for playing on hard or whatever . easy does just fine and lets you explore more , which is what i like the best besides the main story . those idiots and everything else go down quick with the Terrible shotty and max small weapons . mine does 80 damage so 2 close up shots to the face and their down for good . when i say everything , i mean up to a behemouth mutie . its almost like cheating if you use the vats on them ...

Playing through on Normal, I want a bit of a challenge, runnintg thro games on Easy is a bit of a Kop out unless its stupidly hard like Conan was (for last boss anyway)

I havent really boosted my small or big guns up much, was concentrating on lockpicks and sneak and banter., have to try upgrading these next i guess..

i happen to like copping out so .... anyway , the game will last you weeks or more of playing . i dont want to spend more than that on another game like i did with oblivion . i would have hit at least 75k or higher GS by now if i hadn't spent 3 months play it . anyway you will max out your XP before you know it , mine came so quickly it took a while to realize what had happened . sorry for going off topic . anyway i still say stick to small weapon perks/skills and use the shotgun . you think these guys are tuff , go into the deathclaw sanctuary sometime . even on easy youll get your ass handed to you . normal your die for sure if you run into 2 or more and dont play smart .
