Imperial Death March Fallout 4 Powered Speakers

Fallout 4 Imperial Death March

Imperial Death March? In Fallout 4? Star Wars….in Fallout 4? Well, the question we asked our selves is, if we build it will they come? Well, we still don’t know the answer to that, but we sure as heck built it! Tadradan shows us his Powered Speakers in Fallout 4 playing the infamous Star Wars song “Imperial Death March!”

You know what I’m talking about, the “da da da d’te da d’te da”

Check out the video. This is seriously awesome!

What better way is there to celebrate the release of Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens (if you can’t go see the early release that is).

We will update this post later with drawings and details to help you make your very own Fallout 4 Imperial Death March Powered Speakers!

Fallout 4 Easy Caps

Earn Caps Easily in Fallout 4 with this technique. No glitch, no gimmick. Just using the new settlement system to our advantage. It really is easy, and you’ll literally earn caps in your sleep (caps is the currency used in the game if you didn’t already know).

As you are shown in the video, water is life! Building way more than you need water purifiers means the excess water goes into your workshop inventory once a week.

It will take time to build up a lot of water purification plants, and you get the best results with the “Industrial Water Purifiers” and large generators, both of which require you to have Science 1. Besides the health benefits from purified water, it can also be used to make adhesive at a cooking station (with corn, tato and mutfruit), but adhesive doesn’t sale as well as purified water does.

To reap the most from this method you should make these water purification factories at as many settlements as you can, some supporting larger systems than others. The best settlements to use this method are:

  1. Sanctuary
  2. Nordhagen Beach
  3. Taffington Boathouse
  4. The Slog
  5. The Castle
  6. Murkwater Construction Site
  7. Warwick Homestead
  8. Starlight Drive In

Lost Piper End Game no quest

So you’ve lost Piper, Valentine or Dogmeat in Fallout 4 and tried everything in our Lost Companion Guide, but still can’t find them? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. We started to have this issue end-game, mostly with Piper (she never wants to stay put!)

We’ve found that the settler’s bell works well, you just have to ring it a bunch of times. This has worked every time for Piper and Valentine, but not for Dogmeat. I’ll provide some guidelines below for Dogmeat as well. After a lot of trial and error, it seems that your companion is actually with you at times, but for some reason didn’t spawn. For Piper we have completed the requirements to romance her to get the “Lovers Embrace” perk after sleeping. This is great, because it helps to prove that she is in the city (or even traveling with us).

In this video, Tadradan had Piper in power armor and sent her to sanctuary to run some missions with Valentine, because let’s face it…end game is mostly building settlements and doing companion quests. So, after awhile, Tadradan sent Valentine back to sanctuary to run some other missions (doing things Valentine wouldn’t appreciate) and then went to sanctuary to find Piper or Valentine.

After not being able to find either of the two companions, Tadradan checked to see that he didn’t have the “Lovers Embrace” perk and then went to sleep. Upon waking up, he got the “Lovers Embrace” perk. Walking around, he found the power suit that Piper was wearing (she can’t sleep with you in power armor) adding proof that she was there. Now, normally when you get the “Lovers Embrace” perk, the companion you have romanced is in the bed when you wake up. She wasn’t nor could she be found. This happens a lot, like seriously…way too often in this game.

Anyways, the video above describes the “Bell” method for summoning companions. Remember, you may have to ring it a few times, like 10-20, and it can take as long as 5-10 minutes. They may walk over or erratically spawn in some obscure place. (on top of you, the bell or the roof of a near-by building…or stuck in the frickin sky!)

This method doesn’t always work every time for Dogmeat. For Dogmeat you may have to travel back and forth a few times and do the bell method again if you don’t see him in his Dog house. Make sure the city you sent Dogmeat to had ONE Doghouse, otherwise you may end up running around the city multiple times only to have to do everything all over again.

If I ever do find a consistent way to find Dogmeat, I will be certain to share it. The “Bell method” has worked every time time though when looking for other companions (who are not tied to a quest)

fallout 4 covenant human error solve without angering companion

Covenant Settlement

Covenant is probably one of the best looking and most defensible settlements in the Commonwealth, and for good reason. If you have not yet discovered this place in Fallout 4, you should go look for it. If you have the mission “Human Error”, then this location is already marked out for you. If you don’t have the “Human Error” mission, you will once you gain entrance to this fortified city. The overly friendly settlers there are up to something, and when you arrive “Honest Dan” will ask for your help. Honest Dan is a mercenary contracted by Old Man Stockton to find out what happened to his missing caravan, and all roads point to Covenant. It’s real easy to find out what happened if you want to start breaking into buildings, but then the whole town, turrets AND your companion will turn on you

The Covenant is a beautiful settlement with concrete walls and barbed wire, making it extremely defensible. Plenty of ready built homes, and a decent amount of room to grow just enough food to feed your settlers. The lack of a good water source requires you to build more than a few wells, but really the “luxury” and security of Covenant will more than make up for it. Covenant is such a well laid out city that, as long as you produce enough food and beds, it is nearly impossible to have unhappy settlers.

Another great feature is that it is centrally located, making it a great hub for your supply routes. At least for the northern half of the map (where most of your settlements are anyways).

In this video Tadradan will show you how to get the truth about Covenant, complete the “Human Error” mission, and be able to take over Covenant to add to your already massive list of settlements!

Fallout 4 Crashed UFO Location Alien Blaster

Fallout 4 Alien Blaster

In this quick clip, Tadradan will show us the location of the Crashed UFO in Fallout 4, as well as where the Alien is hiding so that we can kill him and take his blaster…I mean welcome him properly to Earth.

Fallout 4 Glowing Sea Dr Brian Virgil Serum Location

Dr Brian Virgil

Tadradan has brought us another great video! In this quick clip for Fallout 4 “The Glowing Sea” side quest for Dr. Brian Virgil, Tadradan shows us how¬†to retrieve his serum from inside The Institute!

Key things to get inside the FEV Lab:

  1. Dr. Brian Virgil’s FEV Serum
  2. Dr. Brian Virgils holo tape (needed for a different mission later, you’ll thank me)
  3. Read his log journals about FEV (Forced Evolutionary Virus)

The Glowing Sea: After heading through the Glowing Sea and talking to Virgil about needing his help, Virgil will ask to get an experimental serum that he claims will make him a human again, but isn’t sure if it exists or not. You must agree to this if they want to complete “The Glowing Sea” and continue the main story line. The player character will have to go to the FEV labs in the Institute to retrieve the serum. Credit: wikia

The FEV Lab is located within the BioScience department at The Institute. There are two ways in, the quickest way is to have “Master Hacker” unlocked, but at the risk of being detected. Another option is to go through the secret back entrance. Make sure you have plenty of bobbypins!

Fallout 4 lost companion bug

lost companion

Fallout 4 has its fair share of bugs, but none are worse than trying to find a lost companion who isn’t where you told them to go! I’ve lost many companion somewhere in the commonwealth, and I’m here to help you save time and energy looking for them!

Again, Piper, Dogmeat, Valentine…even [redacted] Paladin Dance, they sometimes like to go off and do their own thing without really letting you know. So, when this happens to you, take my advice and look in the following areas:

  1. Check in and around the city you told them to go to.
  2. Check at their house.
  3. Check the locations of all quests you have, if they are affiliated with a quest they will be there…or the place within the quest they are supposed to be. (Dogmeat disappeared on me and couldn’t be found, then showed up in the middle of a Valentine quest!)
  4. Check the area where you first met them.
  5. And last place to look, check the area where you left them last (dismissed them). They could be stuck on a frickin rock…again.

*[EDIT] – edited to remove a phrase used referring to Paladin Dance as a person born out of wedlock, that may have been deemed as offensive or derogatory but some entities.

Fallout 4 Best Melee Weapon Kremvhs Tooth

kremvhs tooth

Fallout 4 has lots of great weapons and side lore, but few are better IMHO than Kremvh’s Tooth! The lore and backstory are even darker than some of the other creepy and corrupt side lore of the world before the war, but I don’t want to ruin the experience for you. This weapon is seriously wicked, with not just the most DPS and speed, but also applies a bleed effect AND poison!

You’re going to need to be around level 15 or so because there is no easy way to get this blade of death and mayhem, you’re going to have to fight for it. The fight can be tough, so stock up on stims…and rad-x and rad away, because you’re going to have to take a long swim in some very nasty radiated water. But the fighting, sickness and nightmares will be worth it when you start cutting down swaths of ghouls with every swing!

Fallout 4 x-01 Power Armor full set location

Fallout 4 players that love power armor are always on the lookout for upgrades, but few are harder to find than the infamous x-01 Power Armor! We all know that the T-60 was the latest set used by soldiers during the war, but what wasn’t known was that its predecessor was almost completed. This experimental suit is extremely powerful and has loads of great upgrades! Plus, it is esthetically pleasing, which other people will appreciate in game…and its eyes GLOW!

Fallout 4 Mentats Nukacola Fail

In this video we find a newb in his natural habitat. Fallout 4 has many dangerous activities already ready. We already know what happens in the real world when you mix things like “Mentos” and “Coke”, but what happens if you mix the Fallout 4 equivalent? This uber newb decided to try just that, and the results were…predictable.
