    Fallout Tactics is the only game in the series that I have where I have yet to get anywhere or even know how to begin. Sure I've played Fallout 1, 2, 3, and New Vegas, but Tactics seems to be the most complex game in the series since it is more on strategy and tactics and relying on squadmates, some of whom are of different races from what I have read on the fallout wikia. I have completed the tutorials, but I have no idea how to create a character to get me through the game. I couldn't even get very far in the first mission!

    How should I set my stats for specific builds? What are the best and worst traits? What skills should I tag? How do I build and use a good squad? What are the top weapons in the combat skills? What are some good strategies to get through a mission?

    The best weapons are:

    1. heavy weapons: minigun gauss

    2. small guns gauss rifle weapons: yk28 energy rifle

    4. Disarmed: power fist

    the best person according to me is the melee as it can go into a fight and kill everyone just choose small and beast as perks put unarmed and stealth
    and the other skill you put it as you like and ready remember that the melee is very dangerous when you start to face super mutants since they could annihilate you in a few seconds for big weapons

    anyway the other character would be the small guns or the heavy guns but the best would be energy guns but it is not until the end of the game that you start using energy weapons, whereas the small guns is good at the beginning of the game. if when you get to the fight against the super mutants will stay. Not very good to get the fn fal instead the heavy gun serves throughout the game but it is just after the fight against the super mutants that you start to get big guns you could only get the rocket launcher in the beginning but it is not very useful due to the Ammunition but it is not until the fight against the super mutants that it becomes useful and when you get to have the Sierra your main weapon will become until you get the m2 browing that makes it your main weapon.

    The most important thing to keep in mind would be to put the first recruits that you give to the sniper increase survival up to 100% as this will avoid all random encounters and the doctor put completely barter up to 200% and the skills of medical and first aid increases with books and magazines. What you have to keep in mind is that you never let them die to those 2 others do not matter.

    A council always keeps the game in multiple kept one in the bunker about to start the mission another at the beginning of the mission and two others plus one while you play the mission and the other when you are at an important point (as about to start a shooting).
    If you do this, you will avoid problems of errors.

    Tips when you fight:

    1 Always be careful when you go to a shooting since you could take one of the enemies from the rear and kill you.

    2. Always try to frangise them with the sigils never with one without stealth.

    3. Always keep in mind the action points wait a moment until it is completely regenerated before entering a shootout.

    4. Never enter a closed area if you have the feeling that someone is there. Since you could end up with you always use a character with high stealth.

    5. To attack things like traps press ctrl + secondary button
    This is very useful with the grenades since you simply throw them near where a hidden enemy is.

    6. always keep things you do not use as ammunition, clothing, weapons, always keep them in the vehicles since they could be useful later, either to use them or sell them to buy better things, the best time to sell is when a character has barter high enough to get a lot of money. So much that you will not need until extreme moments.

    7. always use the appropriate weapons against different objectives for example
    deadly claws are weak to fire, robots are weak to electricity, among other things

    8. Be very careful with explosive traps and door traps. Use the trap skill in a door to verify that there is one, never try to disarm them without high skill in traps.

    9. always attack with all the squadron will be much more effective so one, only in different situations not in all since some will require different ways

    10. always use different tactics

    This is all good luck :)

    One last thing I recommend fallout tactics redux mod since it makes the game extremely funny since the tactics becomes extremely necessary since the original fallout tactics is for nothing a game where it requires very little tactics I recommend it you will fallout tactics a real game of tactics you can get in moddb

    that if I first tell you that if you install it you must start a new game so if you already have one I recommend you finish it so you will also see the difference between normal and mod
