Which weapon is the best to use? Ive tried lasers, plasmas, grenades, missles, pistols, flamers and incinerators and nothing does the trick. Im at a high enough level(28) where I figured I would do alot better, but still no luck
Sniper rifle with silencer, hit them in sneakmode in quarry junction, couple of shots does the trick, better if you have Christines sniper, better criticals and chance, in the cave, use followers to flush them out, again sneak mode try and get high or in
an alcove where deathclaws can't reach you
It depends. What build are you going for & what DLCs do you have? Also what perks do you have? In my previous playthrough I was going for an energy weapons guy & when I came back from the Dead Money DLC with the Holo Rifle I fully repaired & modded it.
I was taking out Deathclaws in 2 to 4 shots with the thing. I had all the Energy Weapons related perks & the perk that reduces VATS costs by 10%. Only thing I didn't do was go after the Legendary Deathclaw.
I've also used the Sniper Rifle, fully modded & repaired with AP ammo.
If you mean Melee/HtH, heh heh good luck. I've done it but only 1 on 1 & only vs regular Deathclaws, certainly not the mother or Alpha or Legendary. There I recommend both Toughness ranks, all melee/unarmed related perks (piercing strike, the
one that dazes them & I think there's 1 more that I can't remember right now) & of course
Pushy fully repaired & either medium or heavy armor with the armor perks.
The YCS + Max charge ammo. 1 shot on most except the Legendary. He took two shots after he knocked Boone senseless. Plus all that stuff Randzz said. Weapons at 100 Strength at 9 with at least I think I only have one toughness perk. Oh and the side stuff
from challenges for killing mutated animals.
