Bloodied Builds are some of the most powerful setups you can conjure up in Fallout 76. Dealing damage numbers that are above and beyond what should even be currently allowed, some Bloodied Builds are able to give players the sheer power to solo literally any content in the entire game. Yes, that includes the Scorchbeast Queen. And the Wendigo Colossus. Everything.
Today, we will be creating FOR YOU, a Bloodied Heavy Gunner’s build one that will give you the knowledge of the best possible weaponry, Legendary perks, gear, and SPECIAL points. Welcome the life of a Bloodied Heavy Gunner
Perk Cards of Choice
Of course, you can swap these around if you deem worthy, or seem to find some aren’t fitting how you play, but for me, this gave me the best plan of attack.
When it comes down to using Bloodied Heavy weaponry, you NEED to prioritize specific weapons that are actually going to help you deal the most amount of damage, killing your enemies before they even realize you’re there.
That’s why I’d highly recommend using either a:
- 50 Cal Machine Gun
- Gauss Minigun
- Plasma Caster
- Plasma Gatling
- Lazer Gatling
Each of these either hits like a TRUCK (the plasma caster, for example) or has an incredibly fast rate of fire. The reason why guns like the Minigun or the Gatling gun aren’t really recommended is because they either don’t deal nearly the damage per second you want or shoot too slow to be totally viable.
Now each of these weapons contains it’s own custom modifications, stuff to make the weapons just genuinely better. At the end of the day, it’s up to you on how you want to fit your barrels or capacitors, but ALWAYS remember:
- PRIME RECEIVER DEALS THE MOST DAMAGE
Sure, it’s more expensive ammo, but for the insane boost in damage (especially against Scorched) you can’t go wrong. Besides, if you’re living the Bloodied life, you know what you’re doing and it shouldn’t take too long to get all the resources you need for this.
Now, we already know that the MAIN Legendary effect you have is bloodied, but what are the OTHER effects you want? Well:
Legendary Major Effects:
25% Faster Fire Rate (probably the best perk you can get)
+50 Limb Damage
+33% VATS Hit Chance
VATS Critical Shots do +50% Damage (Plasma Caster ONLY)
Legendary Minor Effects:
90% Reduced Weight
Move Faster While Aiming
15% Faster Reload Speed
You are using Heavy Guns, you are BLOODIED so your health is insanely low, and you’re firing weapons that can kill you better than your enemies can. You need Power Armor for this build, ladies and gentlemen.
Now, Power Armor is always up to the users choice, but there ARE far better Power Armor’s than others, and while using a Bloodied Heavy Gunner Build, you need the best. In that case, I highly recommend using:
Each of these are high level Power Armor, ESPECIALLY the T-65 which is ONLY obtainable through the Gold Bullion vendor Regs at Vault 79. If you can afford T-65, get the T-65.
While dealing heavy amounts of Damage with the Bloodied Heavy Gunners build, there are definitely some buffs you’ll want to have just to absolutely maximize your DPS and destroy the bigger enemies even faster.
Remember, you have BOTH Class Freak AND Starched Genes on to fully utilize the benefits of mutations and take away their negative effects.
Adrenal Reaction: Increased Damage Output at low health. Without Class Freak, this comes at a cost of 50 Health.
Marsupial: +20 Carry Weight, and you can jump much higher. The carry weight is a HUGE bonus in this game. Without Class Freak, this comes at the cost of 4 Intelligence
Speed Demon: +20% run and sprint speed, +30% faster reload speed. The reload speed with the bow build is a MUST HAVE, as Heavy Guns are incredibly slow with reloading. Without Class Freak, this comes at a cost of 50% more hunger and thirst while moving.
Eagle Eyes: Here you find yourself at a BIT of a dilemma, as your strength is now completely wiped off the face of the planet BUT your critical damage is boosted greatly. Even though you won’t be too strong anymore, you’ll be dealing better crit damage than ever before.
Healing Factor: With Healing factor on, you have quite a bit less to worry about with having a lower health build for Bloodied or Berserker’s. This is just an added bonus to help you stay alive. Just make SURE you have Rads, or else you’ll heal up past where perks like Nerd Rage give their benefits.
Once again, really easy to find and make, these are the drinks you want to spam create in order to pop them as often as possible, plus the ingredients don’t weigh you down.
Steeped Thistle Tea & Sweet Mutfruit Teat: +25% Water & +20% Crit Damage
Everyone’s favorite Fallout meal of the day. Here are the drugs you want to bulk up on, just to always boost your build to the most powerful it can possibly be. Remember, these don’t stack, only use one at a time.
Psychotats: +25% Damage, 15 Damage Resistance, and +3 Perception
Overdrive: +15% Damage, +25% Critical Chance. Of course, it doesn’t last for very long, so it’s good to use it sparingly.
There is, indeed, a Heavy Gunner’s bobblehead that will benefit your NON-explosive heavy guns (so no auto-grenade launcher). This gives a massive boost to your damage, and should definitely be used.
As a Heavy Gunner Build user in Fallout 76, you’re already dealing some pretty great damage, but as SOON as you apply the Bloodied Legendary effect, you immediately become strong enough to deal with absolutely any content the game can throw your way.
Make sure you’re stocked up on Fusion Cores (remember, there ARE power plants that literally generate them for you), and you have a LOT of time to scrounge up supplies in Nuke Zones for Ultracite ammo, and you’ll be dealing absolutely ludicrous damage in no time.
