Fallout: New Vegas Guide

Followers Of The Apocalypse Build for Fallout: New Vegas

Followers Of The Apocalypse Build


Ever want to help the poor souls of Freeside or wanted a good Doctor/Scientist Build. Well this is the Followers Of The Apocalypse Build or in short, the FOTAB….kinda dumb but it’s quicker than saying Followers Of The Apocalypse Build. Let’s call the character or your character The Medic or Doctor…ima go with Doc for……no reason. Let’s get into the character backstory. Doc was a memeber of the FOTA and wanted to help spread the message the Followers were spreading and so he/she became a courier to help do so, why be a courier? you may ask, well Doc thought there was enough missionaries and wanted to deliver things to people that could help them while spreading the Followers ideals. Wouldn’t you listen to your mailman if they just brought you some questionable things you ordered? Anyway, Doc eventually got the chance to meet Mr.House when delivering the Platinum Chip, and when delivering the Chip was shot by the scumbag Benny and left for dead, now Doc wants to make sure the Platinum Chip gets to Mr.House so Benny can’t destroy what the Followers are trying to do, and that is helping Freeside and anyone who needs it, and if the Followers can’t have an Independent Vegas the least they can do is get the Chip to Mr.House who can at least help vegas in some way.

Factions, Companions, Weapons, Armor

Doc is a memeber of the FOTA and will stick to those ideals, but when is comes to control of Vegas the FOTA prefer that it stays the way it is, with that said…Faction Time.

Mr.House: Doc knows Mr.House will keep Vegas the way it is no matter what happens. There is a very good ending with Mr.House that i only got once despite the many many times i played the game…i don’t even remember how i did it. But it is the best ending for Freeside and Vegas as a whole.
Yes-Man: Doc listened to Arcade and is trying to make Vegas Independent, going with Yes-Man is the best option to do so, just don’t get drunk with power and forget about the people of Freeside.
NCR: They may want New Vegas for themselves, but if done right they may even help the People of Freeside and the Followers.
Legion: Of course not he best choice, they are slavers…not good for Freeside.

Companions are the foundation of any survival that’s why you take them with you…

Arcade Gannon: He too is a member of the FOTA and wants what’s best for them, and Freeside. When working with Mr.House,Yes-Man,or NCR towards the battle of Hoover Dam Arcade will pull you aside and ask for a very special favor. Just stay on his good side and it may happen quicker then you expect. If that is vague just look up ” For Auld Lang Syne ” If you killed an old person and it said Quest FAILED: FOR AULD LANG SYNE. Then tough luck buddy 🙁
ED-E: He may be the best mini-companion or extra companion what every you want to call it. ED-E will be important to the FOTA and the BoS (Brotherhood of Steel) when doing ” ED-E My Love “
you will be contacted by a BoS Knight named Lorezzo and a FOTA doctor,April Martimer. When that happens talk to the FOTA doctor, to give them Enclave Information and armor upgrades for ED-E. Just a good choice because it helps the FOTA.

Weapons and Armor…best way to survive.

Doc will use and type of Plasma weapons but pistols will be good for mobility like a plasma defender or basic plasma pistol (can get them from dead Bright Followers around the map or Vann Graffs in Freeside).
Doc will wear lab coats and glasses, no sunglasses or authority glasses, normal eye glasses (can find one near the bed you wake up in, in Doc Mitchell’s home) When you are liked by the FOTA they should give you a FOTA lab coat, or you can wear wasteland doctor fatigues found around the wasteland.


That is the end of the Followers Of The Apocalypse Build. Hopefully you can put this to some use and have another way to enjoy the game if you have already restarted it to many times to remember like me, imagination can help make this game last forever and never die out.
