It’s no surprise the Fallout games are seeing a huge bump in interest and sales. Prime Video’s Fallout series just released, and the show is a mega-hit that not only fits into the canon world of the Fallout games but also evolves it. The series answers some burning questions about Fallout‘s world while leaving us with a plethora of new ones. Naturally, fans will now want to bring the world of the Fallout series and the Fallout games even closer together. Anticipating this, Bethesda has released suggested character builds for the Fallout series’ main characters: The Ghoul, Lucy, and Maximus. From perk loadout to outfit, these official character builds let you bring the Fallout series characters to life in your game. (Bethesda also shared canon S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats for the series characters via Fallout Shelter.)

Fallout 76 Character Builds Let You Bring Fallout Series Characters Into Your Game

From game to series to game again, we love seeing how the Fallout franchise is expanding and growing. After spending eight episodes with The Ghoul, Lucy, and Maximus, we absolutely want to spend a whole game with them. Bethesda has shared some very nuanced character builds that fans can take into their Fallout 76 games and use to recreate the series’ main characters.

These character builds include a detailed rundown of each series character’s S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Perks. S.P.E.C.I.A.L. translates to Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility, and Luck in Fallout‘s world. And, of course, it’s all in the look. Bethesda did not forget to add a suggested outfit.

The Ghoul’s Fallout 76 Character Build—S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Perks and Outfit

The Ghoul is one tough cookie in the world of the Fallout series. He’s been around for 219 years, after all, and has seen everything there is to see. The Ghoul’s S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Perks reflect that he’s a great marksman… and not afraid to feast on human butt jerky. Psychopath seems a little hurtful to us, though. But, we guess we have to agree.

Here’s how The Ghoul’s Fallout 76 character build comes together, according to Bethesda.

  • Strength: Barbarian and Bullet Shield
  • Perception: Concentrated Fire, Rifleman, Expert Rifleman, Master Rifleman, Tank Killer, Ground Pounder
  • Endurance: Lead Belly, Cannibal, Ironclad, Ghoulish, Radicool, and Chem Fiend
  • Charisma: Lone Wanderer and Animal Friend
  • Intelligence: Wrecking Ball
  • Agility: Moving Target, Action Boy/Girl, Evasive, Sneak, Adrenaline, and Gun Fu
  • Luck: Psychopath, Four Leaf Clover, Grim Reaper’s Spring, Quick Hands, Better Criticals, and Critical Savy
Bethesda Softworks

To really make The Ghoul, though, he obviously needs his hat. Happily, Bethesda suggests adding one in Fallout 76 and completing the outfit with a long leather duster and bullet belt.

If you’re a Fallout 1st member, you can even claim a free “West Coast Duster Outfit” to help you out with your Fallout 76 The Ghoul character build. The Ghoul is a proud West Coaster after all. And after he’s dressed, you can send him out on epic adventures like… riding a toy horse. Exciting stuff.

Lucy Maclean’s Fallout 76 Character Build—S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Perks and Outfit

Lucy Maclean, meanwhile, is the polar opposite of The Ghoul, at least at first. They might have more in common than either of them wants to think. But for now, these Fallout series main characters don’t share any S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Perks in common with one another in their Fallout 76 builds. Lucy may have to give in to cannibalism sooner or later, though. Of all of the below Perks, “Inspirational and. Magnetic Personality” combined with “Mysterious Savior” really seems to have Fallout season one Lucy nailed.

Here’s how Lucy Maclean’s Fallout 76 character build comes together, according to Bethesda.

  • Strength: Arms Keeper and Strong Back
  • Perception: Commando, Rifleman, Crack Shot, Exterminator, and Long Shot
  • Endurance: Rejuvenated and Lifegiver
  • Charisma: Inspirational and Magnetic Personality
  • Intelligence: First Aid, Stable Tools, and Robotics Expert
  • Agility: Gun Runner and Packin’ Light
  • Luck: Good With Salt, Pharma Farma, Starched Genes, and Mysterious Savior

As far as Lucy’s outfit goes, Bethesda has equipped her with her trademark Vault-Tec suit and Vault 33 backpack. We wonder if Lucy will keep this look for season two of the Fallout series.

Maximus’ Fallout 76 Character Build—S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Perks and Outfit

A member of the Brotherhood of Steel, it’s no surprise that Maximus has many S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Perks in the area of strength. And, of course, he can go “all night long.” But we love seeing his good and kind heart honored here as well. In all, Bethesda really captures this Fallout series character in their Perk Loadout for him.

Here’s how Maxiums’ Fallout 76 character build comes together, according to Bethesda.

  • Strength: Pain Train, Bear Arms, Full Charge, Heavy Gunner, and Strong Back
  • Perception: Crack Shot
  • Endurance: All Night Long
  • Charisma: Body Guards, Squad Maneuvers, and Tenderizer
  • Intelligence: Portable Power, Fix It Good, Wrecking Ball, Stabilized, Power Patcher, and Power User
  • Agility – White Knight
  • Luck: Mysterious Savior and One Gun Army
  • Outfit: Power Armor
Bethesda Softworks

Bethesda also gives Maximus his power armor and associated S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Perks.

This series character adored his power armor in Fallout so it’s only right Maximus gets it back as part of his Fallout 76 character build.

And there you have it, official Fallout 76 character builds for the Fallout series characters if you want to add them into your game. We just need CX404 to make a special appearance next.
