Tales of A Capital Wasteland Wanderer: Regarding Super Mutant Overlords

Here’s a tip for all of you Lone Wanderers out there. If you have not finished the main quest in Fallout 3, do not install Broken Steel. Broken Steel introduces a new class of Super Mutants, the Super Mutant Overlord.

These guys are tough and can bring about some serious hurt especially those carrying the Tri-Beam Laser Rifles. This particular weapon (carried only by Overlords) does an extra 40 HP damage to you per shot (!) and coupled with their high hit points, you’ll probably need to employ run-and-gun tactics.

You’ll find plenty of Super Mutant Overlords in where else but the D.C Area, the very same place you’ll be hanging out in for most part of the main quest. That’s why it is really a bad idea to get Broken Steel before finishing the main quest.

I barely made it out alive from the National Archives (while on the Stealing Independence quest) after getting knocked about by not one, but two Overlords. Least to say, it wasn’t a pleasant experience and I used nearly all of my stimpacks.

At the same time, I do appreciate the new level of challenge, but for those with underpowered characters out there, you have been warned.
