Though he did convince other NPCs to kill for him.
Fallout 4 is a game that is supposed to lead you to some moral choices and then force you to make a decision that isn’t all that moral. The world of the game is one that is harsh and is very much kill or be killed. The game’s developers have even pointed out they built it in a way that would force you to kill someone eventually.
The game is also about as open world as you can get and that means there are a ton of different ways to play. One particular player even managed to find a way to beat the game without killing a single person. Kyle Hinckley knows it’s hard to believe he finished the game without murdering a single person so he posted video evidence of his win (which you can watch below.) What’s even more impressive is that he did so on the game’s hardest level.
Hinckley told Kotaku that he completed this task by loading up his character with charisma so that he was able to calm down even the most deadliest and angriest of enemies. This Charisma also allowed him to actually talk quite a few characters into taking each other out. That means this isn’t exactly a bloodless run through, merely that the player didn’t have to do any bloodletting on his own. By playing the game like this, the player, who calls himself the Weirdist on YouTube showed that there really are a ton of different ways to beat Fallout 4.
