Sniper Build Fallout 4 Guide

Fallout 4 gives you a very vast choice of firearms. Ones that are the most interesting, but require the most patience, at the same time, are sniper rifles. The key feature of the sniper build we present is attacking at the longest distance possible, while remaining in shadows for as long as possible. The sniper's dominion are vast open spaces. Unfortunately, fighting in tunnels and buildings is more demanding.

The most obvious choice for a sniper, when it comes to perks, are the ones that govern damage and accuracy of non-automatic weapons. Also, it is a good thing to decrease the risk of being spotted and quick reloading. In the case of shorter-distance encounters, it is worthwhile to learn handgun handling, which work better in buildings and tunnels, than a scoped rifle. Also, it is very important to invest several points in the V.A.T.S. system.

Statistics

You receive 21 points to distribute. Your character statistics should be as follows:

Strength

2

Perception

9

Endurance

1

Charisma

1

Intelligence

6

Agility

8

Luck

1

Such character statistics only allow you to choose the most important perks. While leveling up, it is a good idea to allot some of the points to increasing Endurance and Strength.

Recommended perks

Sniper's priority perks can be found in three "trees". Perception, which governs accuracy and increased damage from firearms. Also, it is reasonable to add several perks connected with agility. Thanks to this, you will increase your character's effectiveness in combat. Also, you should remember about several Intelligence perks, thanks to which you will be able to upgrade weapons, attach better aiming instruments, better mufflers and so forth.
