10 Ridiculous Things That Can Actually Happen In Fallout 4

Illustration for article titled 10 Ridiculous Things That Can Actually Happen In Fallout 4

Fallout 4 is a pretty absurd game, on the whole. One moment you might become a comic book hero, the next you might go on a quest for a long-lost drinking buddy robot. That’s just the stuff on the surface. Things can get even stranger, if you look in the right places.


Fallout 4 seems to have a variety of different random events, special encounters, and unique dialogue—all of which you may never see even if you pour dozens of hours into the game, as they don’t exist as quests or marked locations. Here are some of the more outlandish things that Bethesda has hidden within Fallout 4.


The Preston Garvey Impersonator

This guy isn’t a synth, as you can see when FluffyNinjaLlama loots the impersonator’s body. This, of course, only makes things weirder. And I love how Preston doesn’t even react to it if he’s with you, either!

Synths, Attempting To Murder Their Human Counterpart

I wonder how many “kidnappings” in the Commonwealth were actually brutal showdowns between a human and their clone? A chilling thought, spurred by this clip uploaded by John Souders.

The Brahmin Synth

What is wrong with the Institute, honestly? What’s the point of this? What’s the point of any of it!? (Source: funkacola)


The Scam Artist

Well, I will give it to this guy. It’s not a terrible idea.

Deathclaw Dialogue

I was too terrified to get this close to the Deathclaw in this mission. But, according to this footage by FluffyNinjaLlama, there is actually unique Deathclaw dialogue!

A little girl, traveling all alone in the wasteland...well, except for her giant murder robot. Oh, and she’s a shopkeeper, too! (Source: Dastardlydeviant)

Manta Man

Get a load of this guy. I hear you get special dialogue if you encounter Manta Man while dressed as the Silver Shroud, too. (Source: Binocular Goose)


I’m curious: what’s the most absurd thing you’ve encountered in Fallout 4 thus far?

Multiple times across the map, that shootout between two identical guys named Art has spawned for me.

At first I thought it might be a weird bug, but now I think it might be a weird statement slipped in by Bethesda....
