Look. I’m not very good at games with shooting mechanics. I’m slow, I miss my target a lot, and I can’t free aim worth shit. I’ve gotten considerably better from playing The Order and Fallout 4. The fact remains, though, that I’m sorely lacking in the skill-sets required to be good at games that may not be shooters, but have guns in them.
Fallout 4 has plenty of guns. Not only guns, but modifications of said guns. The problem? A lot of them aren’t worth a damn. Some of the best guns and apparel come from Legendary Drops. The problem? They give you trash like Legendary Pool Cues and Legendary Boxing Gloves.
Now, I have played the holy grail of Bethesda games…..The-Game-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named, and one of the more appealing points is the ability to craft and enchant weapons and armor. Anything you can get as a drop, you can craft. Fallout won’t fucking give me that. No armor, but more important to me, no weapons. I would like to craft a Troubleshooter’s Assault Rifle that would grant me 50% damage against robots. Or an Exterminator’s Shotgun that would allow me to do 50% more damage against mirelurks and bugs. BUT, Bethesda gives less than a fuck about me and me feelings, and even on survival mode they decide to keep RNGing me to death with damned legendary rolling pins. WHY CAN’T I CRAFT WHAT I WANT! I grind, I deserve this. I mean. I GRIND. I have platinum-ed this game, and STILL, I GRIND.
To make matters fucking worse (as if I needed it) with the release of the DLC, Automatron, you can now craft a whole damn robot. A fully functioning, tearing shit up ass robot. But you can’t make one damned gun. Not even a 10mm. YOU CAN’T EVEN MAKE PIPE PISTOLS AND ITS LITERALLY JUST FUCKING PIPES. EVERYBODY HAS THOSE SHITS. Like seriously. WHY. WHY?!
