Fallout 3.

Why is The Courier the only one with a cool design
>>
>>323478693
If we are talking about an in universe sense, Courier.

He has control over New Vegas (Or is helping to run New Vegas) with implants and way better future tech than any of the other ones.

If we are talking in a meta sort of sense, Lone Survivour because infinite levels and power armour.
>>
sole survivor

>>323480142
He is the Chosen one, afterall. His Religion or culture or whatever the fuck basically says that he can't die. That seemed to run true in Fallout 2.

Sole Survivor because he was in the army

I haven't played the first 2 fallouts so I don't know about them but I would think that the courier would have the securitrons (and maybe the families) as help while the lone wanderer would have the lyon's pride as backup and the sole survivor would have his power armor and the minutemen

3 and 4. They found out the hard way not to stack one thing when specing.

One thing you are all forgetting 1-2 and tactics can target you're groin, and if that doesn't cripple you the shot at the eyes will, you're fucked because of you're minimal VATS.

>>323486948
I'm actually interested in, if we ignore invincibility, infinite ammo, etc, who has the strongest companions?
>>
>>323486917
and unlike all other implementations, fallout 4 has a massive glaring weakness any sniper type of character could easily abuse the fuck out of

so against perception build vault dweller or chosen one he's SOL

It's ok to be a fan of fallout as an fps rather than some borring top down turn based game.

you also gotta keep in mind just how MANY companions the various characters can use

I'd say Courier, but Sole Survivor has like weapons and armor that don't degrade
>>
>>323487938
SS's armor does degrade though
>>
>>323487938
every single courier has jury rigging (don't lie) so weapon degradation isn't all that big an issue
>>
>>323478693
Either the Chosen One or The Courier.

>>323481198
I think it's supposed to be a one-on-one fight, if you're allowed to bring companions/allies then the Courier would always win because of the Securitron Army.

Also,

The Helios 2 system does LAUGHABLE damage for something that can be shot once a day.

Don't think it could even take the SS's pet deathclaws.
>>
>>323488607
You're really underestimating the Securitrons, IIRC the Courier has enough of them to cover the entirety of Outer Vegas and then some. So yeah, the BoS would have some trouble getting through them, and that's not even counting the amount of firepower the Boomers lend him.

I don't think you remember the utter havoc Liberty Prime can wreak, without even mentioning his legions of super-power armored soldiers and Teleporting. Killer. Robots.

Considering he's dead because he trusted a mailman for no logical reason I'd say not very.

A pretty good toss up between the Sole Survivor and the Courier.

One was trained in Pre War Special Forces, and fought the Chinese, as well as already knowing how to use power armor and most guns, and presumably hand to hand combat, not to mention his probably tip top physical shape.


Not much is known about the Courier, but if we're going off the beginning of both games, he doesn't have access to Power Armor, but at the same time to be a fucking mailman in the wasteland, especially one who pretty much brings destruction wherever they go, you have to be pretty able to take care of yourself. And he's immune to headshots. Probably.

After that we have 2 coddled Vault Dwellers and a stupid Tribal. (I don't care how good your drug trip rituals are, they can't beat Power Armor and Plot Armor.)

SO yeah. Courier or Survivor.
>>
>>323489705
Not very, since Yes-man's main function is decrypting comms.

>>323489803
Honestly the coursers alone or liberty prime alone along with the rest of his forces are enough.

Wouldn't a Securitron be at least one or two tiers below a Sentry Bot? I don't see a properly mobilized BoS having problems with House's Army even with Boomers behind them.
>>
>>323489543
>he trusted a mailman for no logical reason
House probably had guessed a favorable percentage indicating that The Courier wouldn't betray him. Too bad Mr. House didn't factor in the fact that The Courier was actually being controlled by an otherworldly force.
>>
>>323489993
Yes-Man has full control over House's systems, and the ability to jump into any RobCo robot
There is absolutely no way the brotherhood's jury rigging is going to stand up against a full scale hack by the RobCo mainframe

Bringing liberty prime to vegas is about the worst tactical move the BoS could possibly do
>>
>>323489543
I don't think you remember the amount of firepower the Boomers have to bomb the BoS back to the stone age.

>>323490280
>House probably had guessed a favorable percentage indicating that The Courier wouldn't betray him.
House guessed wrong with Benny and he didn't even let him in close, but he lets in the courier after knowing him for like a week.

Honestly the plot in NV is pretty damn silly at times.

>Why the fuck isn't your radio working?
>>
>>323490360
The BOS has an army they spent 10 years building, countless power amors, flying ships and tons of salvaged enclave Tech.
They'd have no issue with the boomers.
>>
>>323490204
nope, they're above Sentry Bot level due to their dual rocket launchers combined with a grenade launcher
also its not lone sentry bot vs BoS ambush, its BoS being outnumbered 20 to 1 by things equipped with rocket launchers

and boomers have long range weapons that are canonically capable of oneshotting fully armored BoS knights
>>
Fallout 1 and 3 - sheltered cry-babies who grew up in a vault
Fallout 4 - 1950s-like husband who's completely out of place
Fallout: NV - a retard with amnesia
Fallout 2 - a violent savage who's been killing radscorpions with his bare hands since he was a child

So take a guess.

Yes, F4 is in fact the only fucking Fallout game to do teh logical thing and have the player be able to surpass 10 special with aid.

It's fucking hilarious that a strongman doesn't get any stronger in power armor.

Even a 10% chance can happen. Not saying the that was the percentage exactly, but I think of House as a robot - like P.A.M. He calculates likelihoods into neat numbers. Sometimes, data is wrong.

>>323490598

What? The only thing Vault Dweller has over Chosen One are Stealth Boys and the ability to access inventory with just 1AP if you get all three ranks of the perk. And maybe Mental Block perk or that mental attack blocking stuff you put on your head.

You mean the Warrior. That's his/her name.

Gotta say he is a pretty strong contender. Not only has 5 other guys to help, but also in his/her game you can literally get a Gauss minigun. Or M2HB with depleted uranium ammo.

Oh, and let's not forget the vehicles. Scout car/Hummer/APC/Sherman tank, basically all you need for attack/scouting/troop transport. Oh, and if someone hides in a Vault, then he/she can blow up the door with a nuke carrier.

From a gameplay perspective it's either the Sole Survivor or Lone Wanderer.

Bethesda just flat out doesn't care about character balance. Hence the bobble-heads, books, and perks every level. The PC's in 3 & 4 become gods incarnate of the wasteland capable of any feat.

Meanwhile the other games limit your growth more, requiring nuanced builds allowing your character to be good at only a handful of skills. The PC's of those titles are still very capable but they have to play to their strengths.

Fallout wasn't a big franchise until it went 3d.
Fuck off m8.

This can be easily answered.

Vault dweller and Choosen one are completely fucked since one crit is enough to kill them even if they have the best armor avaiable to them. FO3 guy is just inferior to the endless money of Courier or the non existing level cap with the sole survivor.

Sole survivor has by far the strongest power armor, in every other game they are just a tad stronger than normal armor, except for new vegas where the power armor is worse than the best avaiable normal armor.

Sole survivor would be basically invincible. Nothing could kill him fast enough for him to not be able to just heal himself and go on. Only way I can see Courier winning is by his huge advantage in having almost unlimited resources and the sole survivor running out way faster. But by the time resources would be a problem the courier would be probably long dead.
>>
The Courier > The Vault Dweller > The Chosen One > The Lone Wanderer > The Sole Survivor

Coincidentally this is also the ranking of the Fallout games.
>>
>>323500751
But that's wrong
>>
>>323498845
Yes it was. Gaming in general wasn't anywhere near as popular back then as it was now, but the Fallout games were viewed as some of the best PC RPGs. Deal with it.
