How to use Righteous Authority?

FO4 How to use Righteous Authority

In Fallout 4, Righteous Authority is a gun best paired with other Luck based perks such as Critical Banker and Improved Critical. It’s a laser weapon but rifleman can also increase the overall damage of the weapon by changing the grip.

However, to fully mod this weapon you will need to heavily invest into Science and Gun Nut. But it’s well worth it because of the damage and ammunition available. We recommend going with the marksman stock and sniper barrel. This will make Righteous Authority an incredible sniper rifle you can use through out the game until you find the Gauss Rifle at higher levels.

This is definitely the type of gun you should be looking for early on if you’re planning following a Sniper Build. Moreover, you can check out our Sniper Weapon Tier List for some other great suggestions!
