Fallout 4 Best Shotgun Build

Fallout 4 Best Shotgun Build

The Shotgun build in Fallout 4 is designed to be an up-close combatant focused on Shotguns and explosives for damage. The Shotgun weapon in Fallout 4 is enhanced by the perk Riflemen if it has a Semi-Automatic Receiver. Thus, you can use a combination of Rifles and Shotguns for damage and a wider variety of range combat to engage with. However, we setup this build to be up close with damage reduction perks for increased survival. What makes this Shotgun Build unique in Fallout 4 is its access to almost all the crafting, great damage, variety of weapons, and damage reduction.

You won’t be required to use Power Armor for protection with this Shotgun build, though it can increase perks like Nuclear physics later in the game if you enjoy that playstyle. Moreover, you need many perks to unlock armorer, gun nut, and science crafting trees, so expect a lot of your perks to be tied up into crafting progression. Play the Shotgun build if you love up-close combat with guns and enjoy crafting and tinkering with weapon mods.
