Fallout 4 Boss Guide: How to Easily Kill Behemoths

Fallout 4 - Behemoth

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.


Fallout 4 - How to Easily Kill Behemoths - Weapons1. Equip a Strong Weapon With High Fire Rate

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.


Fallout 4 - How to Easily Kill Behemoths - Run in Circles2. Run in Circles

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.


Fallout 4 - How to Easily Kill Behemoths - Use the Environment3. Use the Environment

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.


Fallout 4 - How to Easily Kill Behemoths - Bug Him Out4. Bug Him Out

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.


Fallout 4 - How to Easily Kill Behemoths - Aim at Chest5. Aim at His Chest

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.


Fallout 4 - How to Easily Kill Behemoths - LootFinally, 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!

    best tactic:
    sneak attack + crit + fatman shell


    Sneak attack + 4x missile volley


    sneak attack bottle cap mines in a line, open with a sneak sniper shot then mow him down with an automatic


    10x sneak attack melee blast in vats + crit + rooted + blitz with a super sledge/sledgehammer

    glitching him is for nubs
