Behemohts are super mutants that are rarely found across the Commonwealth. They are classified as bosses in game and they are extremely strong in both resistance and damage stats. Here’s how you can kill them easily tho.
Most guides around will tell you to use a power armor to kill this type of mutant but really, you do not need one if you know the right tips on how to face a Behemoth. All you need is one or two great weapons, tons of ammo, quick reflexes and a tactic to bug him out, which can be optional if you don’t like exploiting. Start by picking your gear first and no, I do not mean armor.
First rule, always wear the best equipment you have and get tons of ammo for it as well. Don’t forget your secondary weapons too, you might need it if things go do exactly as planned. I used my cell laser Righteous Authority and my 0.45mm Hardened Combat Sniper Rifle.
Behemoths are deadly at melee range but their ranged attacks are quite tolerable even without power armor. As so, run in circles to avoid melee contact and do not ever let him come close to you.
This mutant is giant and he won’t have the same mobility as you, meaning he takes longer to turn around and he won’t be able to pass under certain objects. Use anything around you that might delay him, such as small structures, cars and rocks.
To bug him out, all you have to do is search for something tall and quite wide, then move in circles around it until he’s in front of the object trying to run forward. Once he’s bugged, you just have to stand still and shoot. Trees and tall rocks are a good example to do this.
The most damage really goes on his chest. I tried hitting his limbs and the damage is a bit inferior. If you have the chance aim steadily in order to inflict the most damage possible with the same amount of hits.
6. Power Armor and Projectiles
Using a power armor is a plus for this killing, you’ll endure some of his melee attacks meaning your survival is higher. But defense doesn’t mean much if you don’t know how to kill him. Also, I recommend using projectiles when he’s far away, extra damage is always welcome.
Finally, the loot is not that promising as you can see in the screenshot here. I was expecting more from such a fight. After all, he’s not that easy to kill unless you bug him out. But that’s Fallout life, anything is already something!
