Synths are faced almost entirely like humans, the only difference is that they are a bit more resilient and are immune to Radiation.
Fallout 4: Stop spoiling the game!
Not really a spoiler. Synths were told to be in the game for me in the first few minutes since one of the loading screens explained what they are. That's like saying that "legendary" versions of enemies is a spoiler.
Not everyone knows everything about the game. I didn't know about Synths in the game and not everyone owns the game yet. They could've just as easily showed a pic of the Pip-boy and not mentioned Synths in the title. They could say lengendaries and not mentioned any type of enemy and it wouldn't have spoiled anything. People generally post spoilers in the title when they want hits.
***Not everyone knows everything about the game. *** This isn't "everything" nor is it a story-driven spoiler. It's just one more creature you encounter in the game. Spoiler! There are super mutants! See how silly that looks.
Point a gun and shoot?...
Pretty much. I didn't have much trouble against them yet using a modified 10mm pistole most of the time (which is the first gun you get in the game).
I don't waste 10mm ammo on them. .308 does the job just fine. I find it best to aim for the legs or arms, not the body or head. Tend to be the less armored areas regardless of what you loot off their bodies.
how i kill synths... sneak attack headshots... how i kill death claws, sneak attack headshots, how i kill super mutants, sneak attack headshots... you getting the flow here? lol
Man, you are so killing the mood right now... *looks around for someone sneaking*
I use a sneak attack with a highly modded sniper rifle
If they're running at you - take out either leg and then take them out. I also (if I have the time and haven't been spotted) will shoot whichever arm they're holding the weapon in, then if they start running, take out the leg(s).. Pretty funny watching a synth threaten you when it's got no arm/legs.
Assault rifle in the face seems to be working so far 😃
Furious power fist to the face.
Legendary combat shotgun that shoots two projectiles at once for the cost of 1 ammo. It destroys everything.
Legendary shotgun!? WANT!
I had a fully stocked with turret castle base. Walls put up in key gaps. Heavy laser turrets, machine guns, and rocket turrets. 16-19 Minutemen loaded with various armaments. And one courser ran from one end of the castle... through a tunnel lined with turrets, pass a guard post, through the castle court yard, out the other end passing another guard post a battery of turrets. He made it all the way through only falling one time after a well shot rocket. I finally took him down with a sniper shot in the back from my 100 damage sniper rifle. Yes. I got it on video. Half of it anyway. Those fools are tough. Others I have taken down easier. But this one powered up.
haven't encountered any of these yet, so far I'v only been fighting ghoulies and raiders cause I can't play a hour without my PS4 spitting out the disk on its own
