Does anyone think the deathclaws are a little OP?

or the alien blaster. I just think Obsidian set the dam. level a little too high and also did this to make you take longer to get to NV.

I think it's just right. I like having some tough enemies because once you hit a certain point the whole game is too easy even on the hardest difficulty. Besides, it makes the Deathclaw Promontory that much more rewarding (assuming the armor actually decides to spawn in...)

or the fatman.

Use lots of bottlecap and frag mines as traps then snipe or use a fatman. Best enemy I ever faced in a Bethesda game.

They're supposed to be OP; Especially at Sloan and in the Divide.

They are good fun what are you talking about.. Wait till you play against the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ of Rowr or whatever his name is.. In one of the dlc packs. Trust me until you find the special spot you can hide and snipe him in your♥♥♥♥♥will die every single time cause no matter how healthy you are nor how high of a level you are at 1-2 hits you are dead.

Death claws, like most things are OP only when your not familiar with them. For most new players they encounter them after fighting silly useless foes like powder gangers, raiders, etc and then a fast strong deathclaw gets them and wham, they probably are at low level with basic weapons, etc.

After you fight them enough, you quickly realize that yes, they are stronger than the normal foes about, but are still pretty easy to kill with some basic techniques. You also have poweful weapons you can use to take them down and once you kill a few, they aren't quite so scary. Me, at this point playing through the game numerous times on very hard mode, I don't even bother to snipe or cripple them anymore, i can kill them a variety of ways without all that. I used to do all the regular methods.. mines on the path to cripple them, shooting their legs, grenade launchers at a distance, etc. Now, its more fun with a sighted weapon to try and head shoot them as they are running at me, then switch to a up close and personal SMG with armor piercing ammo to blast them in the face to finish them off. I can't even remember the last time i used the old mine-to-criple-legs trick.

Just use the compliance regulator or stay back perk with a shotgun.

They can't do anything if they're knocked down.

I usually get to vegas before hitting level 2, don't even have to fight anyone to do it.

As long as you have your avenger(Minigun)Or fat man(Found in the same area as the deathclaws),They're not that tough.

with the right perks and a powerfist like weapon, they shouldn't be much of a problem on any difficulty

I'd say, no. They are put into the game to make the player scared of that area and to stay well clear of it untill they have stronger weapons.:longhaul:

They still scare the hell out of me when they come up from behind and knock me over. But they dont stand a chance with this gun: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=217576362
It`s a race of genetically engineered killing machines. The apex predator of the wasteland.

You`d expect them to be pretty strong.
