Molotov in survival, the strongest weapon in the game when held by anyone but you. ​ but seriously though why do npcs always dome you with a Molotov and kill you instantly from long range


Redisigh

I FUCKING KNOW RIGHT! Even on Very hard, molotovs are absolute bullshit. Practically every humanoid enemy after the common raider has them. They onehit, have aimbot and a massive radius. The NPC’s also toss them nonstop. I’ve died so much to that bullshit in the past. Just seeing the molotov in this vid got me a little upset.


ExceedinglyGaySnep

I realized within like 20 minutes very hard was literally just insufferable. I'd rather play survival or hard.


Redisigh

Only reason I play on V. hard is because I heard the loot is better


ForRealVegaObscura

I've heard that too. I like the idea of survival but it's too much of a faff. I just wanna build my settlement and kill shit. Probably an unpopular opinion...


CarbonicBuckey

I like the damage system in survival. Everyone's health is low so u can pretty much one shot everything but they can also one shot you. Sealth/crit builds are super fun to play in this mode. I normally add a mod to enable quick saves thou to avoid the rage quit


Redisigh

I would play Survival but I can’t save and fast travel. It makes it so that crashes and boredom are my main enemy lol. I’m currently going vanilla so I can 100% the achievements but on my next modded playthrough, I’m definitely giving survival another chance


Dying_Soul666

Vertibirds are very necessary for my sanity in survival. When you do a modded run, there is a mod that allows you to craft a reusable signal instead of using the grenades to summon them.


Zephyrlin

I mean the grenades aren't all too expensive tbh but yeah, crafting them is easier


Dying_Soul666

It makes like a single button thing, so you only have to carry one item instead of like 20lbs of them.


Optimal_Pineapple_41

I mean if you’re gonna do mods then just get one that lets you fast travel. I do this but only travel on settlement supply lines, still leaves you with enough walking around.


TertiumNonHater

I have only one achievement left to get. Then I'll jump in the mod scene. That said, it's incredibly satisfying to pop smoke and wait for EVAC on the vertibird. Too bad their isn't a Huey mod or little bird.


Salt-Physics7568

That's pretty much the main issue I had with it, since some quests will have you running back and forth between places two or three times over. For certain places, like Goodneighbor, with performance issues and tons of random enemies, it just isn't fun anymore.


Redisigh

That’s my main problem, too. Some people were acting like Survival’s a godsend last I mentioned it. Like look at the Virgil quest. It sends you all the way from Goodneighbor to Virgil’s cave, over to Greentech, back to Virgil’s cave, and then to your factions HQ. That’s like an hour of walking.


Jpotter145

Survival mode you need to get access to Vertibirds through the BoS or Railroad quest lines. Then the fast travel becomes a non-issue, which indirectly solves the save issue.


CatatonicWalrus

Or you use vertibird grenades and build your own fast travel. It's not that bad tbh but I've also only done one very long survival mode play through.


Oggie243

Irgils cave wouldn't be so bad if you could could just sleep somewhere there or nearby within the glowing sea. The radiation stopping you from resting meant it took me so many tries to complete the round trip.


CarbonicBuckey

Achievement enabler is a mod. Games are supposed to be fun, dont feel like u cheating.


Redisigh

Sadly, I play on xbox


CSpiffy148

You can mod on Xbox.


Omocc

I love the idea of survival - and all the survival mods - but when I actually play them it’s just so tedious. Tried playing and had nonstop infections, couldn’t leave sanctuary.


Red_bellied_Newt

I use a mod that uses smokable cigarettes to save. You still have a bit of a negative effect do to addiction penalties


AdhesivenessUsed9956

only at the start. Unless you have a no-bullet-sponge mod then around lvl 40 common raiders start having 500 HP and feral ghouls go up into the thousands.


jcowurm

Downloading the ability to quicksave on survival made it 10 times more amazing to play. The saving only at beds is Bull.


CraftyWookiee

Worse yet, you HAVE to sleep to actually save. And every time you sleep, thats a dice roll for a potential disease.


jcowurm

Yea I found that out quick when I slept when I arrived at sanctuary and got an infection with no antibiotics between Carla or Drumlin Diner. Searched up a survival quicksave mod 15 minutes later.


Skitz91

If survival had fast travel then i would play it but half way through the game and you have to walk back and forward from the glowing sea to railroad can just get to fuck


danish_raven

The only loot related change is that legendaries have a higher chance of spawning


Karyoplasma

Very Hard turns every enemy into a fucking bullet sponge. Playing that mode is kinda like simulating the Battle of Verdun. It was the same in F:NV and, if my memory serves me right, also in FO3. The difficulty setting doesn't make the game hard, just way more annoying.


thewandtheywant

It's insane. Never thought a video of a Video Game could get me upset.


monsieur_mungo

So toss more at them! But for real. Yeah, I feel ya.


Vocalic985

Yeah that's why I installed you only grenade once. Npcs nonlongerbhave infinite throwables.


OminouSin

I’m guessing I’m lucky? Because every time an NPC’s throws Molotov’s they either miss or it doesn’t instant kill me, it’s always been rare for me to see them throw Molotov’s they usually throw grenades anyways. The only ones throwing anything would be my companions as I give them the stuff.


IzzyTipsy

They're very strong when held by me...especially when I toss one and it fucking hit Piper who ran right in front of me and I died.


creegro

*attacking some low level raiders while strafing through dead trees* *a lvl 1 strong-arm quarterbacks a molotov at you between a ton of tiny trees and you die instantly* Wow thanks Bethesda, so realistic. And then: *reload last save miles away, find same raiders again* *they start unloading molotov but you found a space up high they can't headshot you instantly with a throwable* *many molotov later they are all dead, loot time* *Expecting 5-15 grenades on this one guy* *1 molotov*


YourAverageBoot

Haha including you! I learned very quickly even with a throwing arch that I am trash with molotovs


BioClone

Sorry, worst fuckers are cars... That moment when you think the combat is over, we made it! you exclaim while suddenly a red icon is displayed on your HUD... "USonOfa..." *^(Distant Groaning across the neigbourhood)*


CaptainPrower

Oh, I thought this was gonna be something like dying of starvation in the middle of a conversation that makes it look like you died of boredom.


[deleted]

Ha lmao. I haven’t actually starved yet surprisingly. Almost died of an infection once though 😂


llagerlof

Wait, can we starve on Fallout 4? But I never ate anything...


Raddiikkal

I take it you’ve never attempted a survival mode play-through.


d_adrian_arts

Paper delivery straight from Diamond City! You've got to read this story, its on fire!


TheFiremind77

*Hot off the presses!*


IzzyTipsy

*Sees bloody body* "They'll print anything these days"


ClockworkDragon1978

Lol ... That sucks... I got a mod that lets me save normally on survival for that reason. I know it defeats the purpose a bit but between game engine stability and circumstances like these it's definitely necessary. Edited sure to autocorrect


cgduncan

I might add that one to my playthrough, cause it's hard to stay motivated when you just can't find a friggin bed and lose all your progress.


voidsong

Or walk near a car.


Knuy2012

Fucking cars gave me ptsd.


TheFiremind77

Yeah I have a quicksave mod for this type of thing, but moreso to prevent losing progress to surprise CTD.


[deleted]

Survival can be incredibly fun but also terribly frustrating


Roland1099

I tried playing without mods in survival in order to get achievements on the xbox, but the amount of crashes is unbelievable. Boston is impossible to play at without quicksaving, it crashes or freezes each step you take):


kenn714

Well Piper, maybe people don't want to talk to you because there are Molotovs to dodge.


[deleted]

No place is safe to chat in the wasteland!


kallonismyname

cartoon moment


cygnusx1thevoyage

That is why i never open that door. Only allow access from the road to diamond city.


[deleted]

That’s a very good idea in hindsight. I might just build a wall there


Homelessnomore

I don't open either door. First access is from the rooftop of the building where the DC guards are fighting mutants. Then I build unconnected stairs on the river side so I can jump the fence. I also don't use settlers there.


[deleted]

Smart thinking


voidsong

Concrete foundations all around!


invisibul

One time I had macready’s talk at the crater of atom and died of radiation in the middle of it 😂


[deleted]

That’s brilliant 😂


Games_Twice-Over

Let's ROCK!


RaidensReturn

Just the timing and the way he screams it while Piper’s carrying on and on make this absolute gold


AustinRiversDaGod

Right. The Molotov coming out of nowhere is pretty funny, but LETS ROCK has me dying


[deleted]

I didn’t know whether I should cry or laugh when I heard “LETS ROCK”


PKDickLover

Gives me Leeeeeroy Jenkins vibes.


bigdickrick711

I’ve never played survival but if you accidentally kill a faction member Will you die immediately and start all over.


Important_Ad_6585

If you have never slept in a bed to save, yes you will start over.


Bluezero2424

A test of your reflexes


[deleted]

I failed ):


Meganostradamus

Head shot


TihetrisWeathersby

This is why we have settlement defenses


[deleted]

Lmao yeah. I’d just been informed by one of my settlers that the gunners had been around and was about to improve the defences when Piper grabbed me 😂


[deleted]

Last nite Wolfgang blew my head off mid convo with Trudy when he knew I was gonna side with her. Idk how the game even allows this cause you literally can’t do shit about it but it’s hilarious 💀


[deleted]

I just shot the two of them the second I saw what was happening. Realised later it counted as 2 acts of murder :/


[deleted]

😂😂😂😂


Cry4MeSkye

God damn. Right in the chops


RDW-1_why

That man should join the baseball league for the best pitch


nuketeens_alt

remember kids always use YOUR power armor (i think)


[deleted]

I left it is sanctuary. I’m definitely gonna get it when I fight the courser though! (And go to nuka world)


nuketeens_alt

thats a good way to use it


Tonyclap

You can also hook up Mama Murphy with some drugs to get out of that fight if you were so inclined.


saltminesplunker

Oh god, I feel this. Probably been like hours since you slept.


[deleted]

I last saved at fort Hagen, I walked straight to hangman’s alley but it was a good half an hour trip . I’ve made all my progress back though :)


saltminesplunker

Also love how Piper takes a fastball molotov to the head and drops into a combat stance where you get knocked into next Tuesday.


Gasrim4003

The main reason why I don't play on survival mode. Raiders and gunners love to spam those as well as grenades.


[deleted]

Yeah, makes things very difficult. It’s a rewarding challenge though (for me at the moment anyway)


Gasrim4003

Heads up Nuka World is **HELL** with out Power Armor.


[deleted]

Yeah I can imagine. I’ve played fallout 4 on many other difficulties (mainly normal) and even then, the gauntlet was unthinkably hard


Gasrim4003

As a sneak build it wasn't too hard, it was the nuka galaxy that made me tear out my hair.


Sparxx_Interface

[deleted]

I always forget how much of a pervert I am until I see somebody playing FO4 without a busty mod.


[deleted]

Lmao. We’ve all been there


[deleted]

I do not play video games to see average people. I want my men to be huge and muscular, shirtless, and hairy AF. I want my women to look like galactic supermodels. Fiction is way more fun than reality.


TexasArbiter

Remember kids, its not sexist if everyone is sexy


[deleted]

I get you completely. I don’t like to play with mods though , probably because the selection is very limited on Fallout 4. When I do a ‘sandbox run’ (where I run around killing countless raiders in god mode’ I do usually use the busty mod lmao


[deleted]

At least you understand where I'm coming from, that is more comforting than you know.


5213

They've still got Piper in little more than a harness and bare leather Armour ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


polyfauxmus

This reminds me, somewhere there is a probably mod that stops npcs from having infinite grenades. Anyone know one?


polyfauxmus

This one? Haven't used it, just found it https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/20720/?tab=description


mrlightless

Game Configuration Menu lets you set how much time needs to pass before npc can throw something again. Default intervals are something like 2 or 3 sec thus grenade/molotov spam.


SirWaymarRoyce

I'm sorry for your progress but it's really funny.


[deleted]

Yeah I couldn’t help but laugh through the pain


Okemuth

"Is this a good time for that talk? "


deemfingtee

LETS ROCK!


anneoneamouse

There's a spawn point by the dumpster there. Safer to leave that back door chained. Put two turrets looking down the alley that goes out towards the river, they'll cover the only entrance. Add a stair and platform inside the chained back door so that you can run up and jump over the barrier if you need to.


[deleted]

Too late to rechain the door sadly.


anneoneamouse

Understood. Have wished many times for the ability to rechain doors from the inside.


jimblackreborn

After twenty minutes of talking with Piper about “what are we exactly?” the Molotov came frankly as a relief.


[deleted]

Ha lmao


[deleted]

[удалено]


[deleted]

Perhaps so


Saty05

Awesome accuracy.


drakner1

That made me laugh hard.


ericwu102

I find your choice of attire for Piper…. …acceptable ☺️


lesrichh

you just have to laugh sometimes


RohanK1sh1be

What i do is stock up on jet and use it anytime i even think i see a molotov. Then in slow time shoot it out of there. This does use a lot of jet but diamond city blues and infinite caps from purified water means you shouldn’t have any problems getting it past the early sections.


[deleted]

Thanks for the advice :)


RohanK1sh1be

Np


waterfae

Hangman’s Alley moment


YeetusTitus

Meh it's not as bad as crashing 5 times in a row after trying to approach Faneuil Hall.

Sounds very frustrating


platapus100

SnooOranges1040

Rest in yeast, or any other bacteria, mold, or other organism that eats dead bodies.


CellularPunk

That's why I always use power armor in wild


NekoCardemon

I love how you get fuckin' GLASSED with a molotov and she still is talking to you like nothing happened.


[deleted]

I had her comment previously in a similar situation “good to see you still in one piece” or something like that. They don’t seem to recognise death


NekoCardemon

I had a situation where a detective follower from an Dues Ex Mod for FO4 saw me get downed by 2 explosions going off and stopped before my body and looked down and said: "This one was killed recently"


[deleted]

Lmao. Companions are kind of broken. I still love them though


Objective-Nyc1981

That’s a very costly conversation! Hope piper was worth it!!!


Ok_Cryptographer520

So i was about to bone my girlfriend then this molotov came out of now where and as me and my gf where on fire she said there was no way.


KyleFoxthefuck

Instead of the pipe you both got the bottle instead


Equivalent_Sea_6791

I still haven't gotten to level 30 before wanting to change my build...


HippyPCT

This made me laugh! Thank you 😊


[deleted]

No problem (:


allofdarknessin1

I love almost everything about survival mode except the difficulty. Hangman alley is the furthest I've even gotten after meeting Piper on survival. Those instakills are just too annoying. I like the food and water needs. They make a lot of common useless items more than valuable.


[deleted]

I think when you get used to the saving mechanic it gets somewhat easier. If you die once and you saved nearby, just lob a grenade into the room you were in. Still definitely infuriating though


0717414

they really dont want to talk


arib_kamal

Even if I’m modded the fuck out , super OP and have my own squad (FCOM) , Molotovs got mi timbers shiverin


radical_sin

HEAT SEEKING MOLOTOV!!!!!!!


TsDulyn9

People sure don't want to talk alright.


PursuasiveDuck

Molotovs. Fucking. Suck.


EvilFuzzball

This is why I can't do survival. Losing tons of progress because of a wayward molotov thrice a night isn't immersive for me, it's just frustrating lol.


[deleted]

It’s definitely annoying that considering I’m a killing machine who has killed over 200 people (in game), the weakest explosive in the game instantly kills me


PantheismAt3

God I hope you slept 5min before this.


[deleted]

About 30 minutes before ):


Borgdyl

Piper's apparel?


[deleted]

It’s a harness with leather armour


kopy05

Yup, that seems about right for surival mode


AverageTalosEjoyer

“yeet”


RickMcFlick

Pipers tiddies lookin good in that harness


Redisigh

Knew someone was gonna say it


Outrageous-Diver3008

“Let’s rock” 😂😂😂


[deleted]

I was pissed off when this happened but it was so funny I couldn’t stay mad


One_Parched_Guy

…tbh it kinda makes sense. Like half the time they choose to speak with you, it’s out in the open in some random city or field. What raider wouldn’t take the shot? Kinda makes me wish that there was a mod that made it so the conversation would only trigger in safe places, like cities. Maybe even cleared buildings for privacy’s sake? They talk about some heavy stuff for any random passerby to hear :P


[deleted]

Yeah. I was actually in a settlement though, although it was hangman’s alley (which can get raided frequently)


One_Parched_Guy

Ah. Still, the inside thing applies :P I personally wouldn’t want to have my heart to heart in the middle of some dingy alleyway, kinda ruins the mood


[deleted]

That’s a good point :)


Equivalent_Sea_6791

A Family Guy reference? Nice


Street_Magic

People didn't wanna talk


Fatoast1994

I'm more surprised people still play this game
