Need help killing deathclaws please

Still getting my killed in a heartbeat even with level 40 something. This isn't making lonessome road any fun to play. Any advice please?

Thanks. I killed then all anyway. Beat lonesome road. Come on 11/11/11.

I used my Riot Shotgun to take 'em out. I have most (if not all) the perks for shotguns so I pretty much get out of Deathclaw attacks pretty well with some scratches or crippled limbs (when I missed T.T). Since I ran out of ammo for it I've had to use  my Anti-Materiel Rifle. Incendiary or AP usually worked for me, especially AP.

Sneak criticals are a great way to start. In Lonesome Road I used the COS rifle, AMR (incendiary rounds) This Machine (AP rounds) and if they got close the Riot Shotgun is a good finisher.

If my first shot doesn't kill the beast I'll target a leg and hopefully cripple it to slow its advance. Usually that gives you a chance to get a few more shots off.

Like said above, AR Rifle in Sneak (AP Rounds) is serious overkill against any Deathclaw. Fun Deathclaws to kill in LR DLC, try Couriers Mile.

oh i killed them with dinner bell and i have the stand back perk and shotgun sergeon perk. one to two shots and there dead.

I have a problem using the GRA Achviment (Challenges) for killing Deathclaws

RRG is devastating.  I've been using it in the main storyline for pretty much anything at range.

You haven't laughed out loud until you've taken out a bloatfly with an RRG barrage.

i can kill a deathclaw with my bare hands in one blow, not that hard. why do people use so many stimpacks, i never really get shot at all.

[/quote]I think the OP is referring to the Deathclaws of Lonesome Road specifically.  They're more powerful then the ones in the default game since they level with you to some extent.  

 

@OP.   What are you tailoring your character to, a melee specialist, energy weapons, using slug throwers?  if slug throwers &/or explosives, did you get Rockets Red Glare & fully modify it?  Even unmodified it makes Annabelle look like crap.

I think the gauss rifle rocks at taking down deathclaws! get into sneak and snipe them off. Works every time pretty much lol
