Description: The shotgun and hunting rifle are the main weapons and the scrap of the waste land is your main ally. Attack dog and Lead Belly gives this build the special touch allowing you to carry more and save stimpacks (using them on dog meat makes him that much more helpful). A significant part of this play style is settlement building. To counteract the lack of damage the armorer, life giver and toughness perks are taken. Although you dont have high agility your accuracy in vats will be good because of the high perception. Most of the combat will just be upclose shotgun and hunting rifle while dog meat is holding the enemy down. In addition to dog meat the basher perk will help save some ammo.

While playing this build try to avoid visiting markets for scrap. Instead enjoy scouring the wasteland with your dog, hunting and cooking. The lead belly and strong back perks should help with this. As a challenge try not to use any chems.
