Supermutants actually get quite easy if you have a dart gun.

Open up with a few shots from that (one at each supermutant before swapping to better firearms for damage).

Another thing you can do though is download a couple of mods that help with making limb damage more realistic (works both ways, be careful) but it allows you to focus fire on say, a Supermutant`s arm and take it out, thus getting rid of his ability to wield that minigun.

Beautiful and dreadful.
Reminds me of my morning cup of coffee. Sometimes I just drop the creamer in slow and space out watching it do this with the coffee.
Tastes great, less fallout.

The atomic bombs of Nagasaki and Hiroshima didn`t kill millions, it was more around 200,000. And that is especially striking given the military`s and many historians predictions on military and civilian casualties went well into the millions if a ground invasion was to be launched.

Atomic weaponry paved the way for fission power, great strides in the physical sciences, and will no doubt play a role in eventual fusion energy. Terrestrial power plants able to produce power at an unbelievably low output/cost ratio, all due to atomic weaponry.

On that level, then yes, it is quite a beautiful sight.

EricWRN... I bet you`re a joy to hang out with. I place a lot of value on my life, as the provider for my family. The things outside my bubble of reality mean very little to me. Who would ever want to compare their life to the entire existance of the universe. douche!

@thorna: everyone can value their lives, I just think people should be a little more realistic about what that value is and what things are truly infringing on said life.

"B: Geez are some people hyper-sensitive. Planets are made and destroyed every minute of every day in the universe people. Stop acting like our planet sheds a little earth tear every time a kick-ass atomic bomb goes off. Ever hear of a supernova? Those things decimate everything within lightyears. Stop whining and just accept that earth`s existence and your existence and every life form on this earth`s existence is just a meaningless, finite blip on an infinitely vast and never ending radar. Learn to enjoy the inevitable downward spiral into oblivion!"
I know this... And still I hate the image... Why? Because like all humans I don`t really like the idea that I am going to die, and I don`t like pain, fear and terror... So while those things do go on in the universe... You can`t a kin it to something on this earth that makes people fear their own deaths.

So yeah, I am a blip in the face of the universe... But I still value my own life.

like i said, enjoy life for what it is: a tiny, insignificant blip on a radar, which would go completely unnoticed were anyone to be watching it. The point was that people get very worked up over atomic bombs, and anthropogenic global warming, and the fact is that nature does all these things but on a scale billions of times larger. Our little atomic bomb going off or our little parts-per-million of carbon being emitted/ methane/ whatever al gore thinks is killing polar bears this week, is mathematically negligible compared to what the universe does on it`s own. It`s rather conceited to think that anything man does makes any real difference in anything.

or we could enjoy life for what it is instead of believing that depressing load of poo
not to mention those supernovas in space are much more natural than a scientist coming up with a way to destroy everything the bomb touches

"There is nothing beautiful in bringing the destruction of the planet and the death of innocent children, woman and man."

At least one of those people stole my bike - that guy can fry. And I`m pretty sure there are some children who stole candy too, thus not innocent.
