Fallout 4 Tips to Level Up Faster

You don’t need to level up quickly in Fallout 4 and many of you will want to take your time doing so. But if you do decide that you do want to push into higher levels at rapid pace, here are some tips that will help you level up faster in Fallout 4 (and its DLC) on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Fallout 4 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC is finally here and thousands upon thousands of people are now able to create a character and quest in a wide-open world that’s full of loot, monsters, interesting characters, and adventures.

There are a ton of moving parts but one of the most basic Fallout 4 features is the leveling system. If you’ve played an open-world RPG or an MMO, you’re probably familiar with this concept. Level your character and the game opens up.

You’ll meet new characters, employ new abilities, explore new places on the map, tackle new quests, and be able to equip your character with powerful gear. There isn’t a level cap in Fallout 4 which means that you can keep leveling while questing and acquiring new gear.

Many of you will want to take your time. But if you decide that you want to level up your character a little faster (remember you need to be level 15 in order to start the Automatron DLC questline, the Far Harbor DLC includes high level enemies) there are some strategies to use.

We’ve been playing Fallout 4 for a number of months now and we’ve been playing MMOs and open-world RPGs for years. And we, and many others, have come up with some ways to get your character’s level moving in the right direction.

Some of these tips are simple, others are a little more involved. All of them should help you rank up your Fallout 4 character a little quicker. Take a look. There’s something here for everyone, from beginners to seasoned vets.

Holster Your Weapon to Run Faster

Holster Your Weapon to Run Faster

Let's start with something easy. If you holster your weapon, you'll run faster. To holster your weapon, hold X on Xbox One or on Square if you're using the PS4. Running faster has its advantages.

First off, you won't die as much because you'll be able to get out of tricky situations. Dying less means more time for questing, crafting, and you guessed it, leveling. And second, it means you'll be able to get around the map faster.

That means more combat and faster questing. And both of those are going to give you the experience points used to level up your character.

There aren't any mounts or cars in Fallout 4 so you'll need to rely on your feet and fast travel between various locations.

    Really didn’t expect tips like “holster your weapon when running” and “use cover” in a “tips to level faster” article. Weird stuff.

      Agreed this list is super random.. Leveling up is a necessity in this game as there’s so much you can’t do unless you have the right perk, which you can only get from leveling up, so why do they act like it’s not even a big deal? Weird.

    Most of these aren’t even tips for leveling up, just tips for playing the game. As for the very last tip, here’s a better one. Invest in the Robotics Expert perk before doing Automatron. It gives you the ability to hack robots and make them shutdown or self destruct, and later down the line you can even make them attack for you.

    I’m level 125 now and i’m missing my main trick in this list; Vegetable Starch!

    Get your settlements to produce: water / tato / corn / mutfruit, as much as you can.
    Link all your settlements and every couple of days go to your cooking station and make vegetable starch.
    Excellent XP, even at level 125 i get 1/4 – 1/3 level every other day.

    Cooking/crafting as a whole is good for XP, always buy fertilizer and make as much fireworks as you can. I also make lots and lots of caltrops, they dont give much XP (and are a lot of buttonclicks..), but since they only cost 5 steel each, and steel can be bought in shipments of 250, it’s still good XP in the end, although its a bit much work.

    But vegetable starch takes the cake, once your settlements are producing the resources needed you can just sit back and let the free XP roll in ;) i havent found a better way to level..
