    I've been playing FNV again, now with DLCs and in the Honest Hearts I came across this Badass character named Joshua Graham, the "Burned Man", and I thought that it would be a good as a character build for Fallout 4.

    Note: This is a modded build on Xbox One.


    • .45 Auto Pistol (Colt 1911) With Ha_ru Animations by DeadPool2099
    • Joshua Graham's Armor By Mr. Mobius
    • (Edit) Altyn Assault Helmet by Nutulator. The mod includes an underwear for the helmet that looks perfect for the character, you can see it in the photo.

    These are basic for this build, but for more NV nostalgia I also recommend "Wild Wasteland" by WatcherZero and "New Vegas Unique Mega Pack V2" by Captain-Ultima.

    Starting SPECIAL stats


    PERCEPTION: 3 +1 (Bobblehead in Museum of Freedom)




    AGILITY: 6 +1 (Invest the special book in Sanctuary in this skill)

    LUCK: 3

    I recommend to get all the Special bobbleheads asap to increase the stats, and invest ocassionally in special if you level up.


    I don´t like to stablish which perk must be in each level, so I'll just mention the perks which I think you must focus on:

    Gunslinger, Lone Wanderer, Medic, Adamantium Skelleton, Bloody Mess, Action Boy, Quick Hands (If you invest in Agility) and Lifegiver

    Factions and Role-Play

    Joshua is with the people, so certainly he is not siding with the institute, I'll say that he could side with the Minutemen or with the Railroad for the Ballistic Weave. The burned man is looking for redemption after what he did inthe Legion, and he'll follow the path of the lord, fighting raiders and the evil of the commonwealth.


    The mods that we're using will be enough for the aesthethic, also you could add a lot of burn damage when you create the character.

    You will be using the .45 pistol most of the game, also the mod features the original .45 from Graham "A light shining in darkness" which you can find in mainquarters of the Railroad, been more specific in the main table. At the begging you could stick to the always reliable 10 mm. If you want, try to use ballistic weapons such as rifles or shotguns, but try not to use energy weapons, not much Grahams style.


    I hope you have a lot of fun with this build, thanks for reading :D

    New Vegas! Thanks for the build, this is awesome! Joshua Graham is a great character with a rich history and a lot of fun to interact with in game and explore via interactions with others.

    Hey Fhinix! Welcome to the build family! Looks good for your first shot at it. Would you be ok if I edited the title and tags to format it properly and so it will show up in our archives? Thanks!
