Fallout 4: 5 Things You Shouldn’t Overlook

Fallout 4 is filled with loot. It’s everywhere. And because there’s so much to loot, there’s a chance that you might overlook items that aren’t called copper, steel or stimpack. Here, we want to outline a few in-game items that you shouldn’t overlook during your journey across the wasteland.

Bethesda’s worlds are always filled with stuff. It used to be that their games were populated with a ton of junk that you’d immediately discard, sell or avoid altogether. Fallout 4 isn’t like Skyrim or Fallout 3 though. In Fallout 4, even the junk matters.

Everything has a purpose in Fallout 4. That cigarette you avoided in Fallout 3? In Fallout 4, you can break it down into cloth. Cloth is used to craft items including beds and couches for your settlements. This is just one example, there are tons of others.

Yesterday, I found myself inside the Beantown Brewery, the place where Gwinnett Lager and Gwinnett Pils used to be made. 

Once I reached the top floor office, I noticed an item that looked a lot like a holotape sitting on the desk. Only, it wasn't a standard holotape. Instead, it was a receipe for Gwinnett Brew. 

If you deliver this recipe to the appropriate person (Buddy), you'll unlock this alcoholic beverage and you'll be able to start crafting it yourself with the right materials.
