Unlike Fallout 3 and New Vegas, Fallout 4 took a different approach to its leveling-up system. Because of this, there is no Perfect Fallout 4 Build. Instead of increasing individual skills to level up and then using those skills to acquire perks. You receive a point for every level up, which can be used to either pick a perk or use that point to increase your SPECIAL attributes.
Another difference is that there is a very high level cap, to the point where you can acquire max SPECIAL and all perks if you persevere. So instead of maximizing skills and specials, I’m going to show a few builds that can get you through the main quest regardless of who you choose to side with.
If there are any missing levels in the perk list, you can choose whatever perk or attribute you want to progress your build. Eventually, all these builds will get to a point where every perk and attribute is at maximum level.
Want to be able to talk your way out of anything? Is fighting not your forté? Well, look no further at this Fallout 4 Perfect Build.
We’ve maxed out charisma to make sure you can pass almost any speech check. Dump as many points as you can spare into Luck, we can then pick up the Mysterious Stranger perk which will become a helping hand during battles you can’t talk your way out of.

4*: Requires Nuka-World DLC
Since you won’t have access to hacking or lockpicking until higher levels, you will need a companion who can fill in for you. You have a choice between Cait or Nick Valentine. Cait has access to lockpicking, while Nick has hacking abilities. Being a charismatic character, I would tend to go toward Nick Valentine, especially if you enjoy roleplaying as a Private Investigator.
If you want to roleplay as a PI, you will need to get the yellow trench coat and a fedora hat to compliment the outfit. This outfit can be found at the Vault-Tec rep located at the Hotel Rexford in Goodneighbor.
If talking isn’t your thing. This Gunner build may be more up your street. The aim of this build is to maximise your damage output via guns, while still being able to take a few punches.

For the Gunner there isn’t an ideal companion, having either Valentine or Cait will mean you can focus on other skills rather than hacking or lockpicking. For roleplaying purposes Deacon, Cait or Codsworth would be the best choices since they will complement your bad deeds.
For equipment, you want to focus more on guns that can either be ballistic, energy weapons, or even rocket launchers. For clothing, you want military fatigues, and then you build your armor pieces around them. High-level Gunners use more plasma weapons than any other group, so once you’ve found your first plasma pistol, move on to plasma-based weapons.
In the final Fallout 4 Build, the barbarian is a very dumb melee weapon monster. Preferring to focus on smacking its enemies without any finesse. Expect to receive almost as much damage as you deal. And don’t bother sneaking, the barbarian just wants to hit some stuff.
What’s better than one barbarian? Two barbarians. Strong would be the obvious choice since he is a Super Mutant after all. Next is X6-88 arm it with melee weapons and enjoy running into a rampage with them.
Using the blacksmith perk you can make your armour stronger, so finding armour with the highest resistances is your priority, especially if it doesn’t look pretty. The weapon you need is the Super Sledge. It’s one of the highest damaging weapons available and looks perfect in the hands of a barbarian.
