I'm not a HtH pro, you may get much better builds from HtH experts:

S - 7, P - 1, E - 10, C - 1, I - 2, A - 10, L - 9

JINXED, BONEHEAD or HEAVY HANDED + BONEHEAD or HEAVY HANDED + JINXED

Adrenaline Rush, Toughness, Even Tougher, Close Combat Master, In Your Face, Stonewall (life giver), life giver, Bonus Rate of Attack

after:
buffout, psycho, nuka cola, beer

S - 10, P - 1, E - 10, C - 2, I - 2 (1 if you take Bonehead), A - 10, L - 9

AP - 10
DR (CA MK II) - 75%

Now, 21 party points is too low to get a companion.

Beer gives +1 CH (therefore 2 CH)
Mentats gives +2 CH (therefore 4 CH)
Mirrored shades gives +1 CH (therefore 5 CH)
Armor +1 CH makes it 6 CH in total

that is 61 Party Points. Raise your Speech to 100% to get additional 30 party points (91) - this will be enough to get 1 companion (70 PP), with 100% speech you are able to get Magnetic Personality perk, which grants another +50PP. Also, if you raise up your speech to 300%, you will have in total:
100 PP from speech, 61 from Charisma, 50 from MP perk = 211 (2 companions and 1 merc)

From my POV this is both - companion & pvp+pve viable build.

Rgds,
Puff

Powerpuff,  can we still buy the stat implants for 100k in SF after 30 lvl? I wanna try doing

S - 6, P - 1, E - 10, C - 1, I - 4, A - 9, L - 9

then get it to 30 and add the S, P, C, A and L implants.

Also why not one hander instead of jinxed? It's a melee class. It will mostly use the powerfist. Or little jesus in some cases. I played as melee all s2. Rarely used a SS. Or am I missing something?

super pwerfist in the eyes with heavyhanded makes it like about 85-90% kd. I used to kill that 3k hp bot in the military base SE without it ever being able to 1-hex me. Not a good way of killing it, btw. Takes a bunch of time and ammo. but can be veru helpful when there's a friend with pancor+emp shells. It's also not too difficult to fight like against 3 deathclaws at the same time in only CA mk1.

Hi,

- implants are not available.
- onehander has two benefits - 20% accuracy and +5flat dmg, however +5flat dmg is being applied only for ranged1-handed weps. MPF is not a ranged weapon.
- jinxed is handy if you're wielding little jesus or Louisville slugger coz they won't break.
- I also offered non-jinxed combo - bonehead is great against snipers and heavy handed, as you described.

rgds,

oh, no implants even in dungeons? that sucks. It was a lot more fun when we could just buy implants. Well, I think so.

yeah, looks like what you suggest is what I chose for the first, non-implanted melee.

anyhow, thanks for help
