Fallout 4 is now out- Bethesda’s magnum opus is a sprawling RPG, set in a near distant future, where nuclear war has wracked Boston and laid it to waste. Boston is now a wasteland inhabited by mutated beasts, and people who have lost all humanity in their bid for survival- and without warning, this is the situation you find yourself in in Fallout 4.

LEGENDARY WEAPONS AND ARMOR EFFECTS

As the name implies, in Fallout 4, you can often find Legendary gear- this is far beyond regular gear. Legendary gear is usually more powerful, has better passive effects, and more devastating abilities. Legendary gear can usually be found by taking on Legendary enemies in the wasteland. Once they are killed, they drop the gear for you.
