So, I kinda went into Fallout 3 blind.

And I think I'm kinda screwed. My equipment may be too weak for my level; I only scavenge equipments from enemies and I've never made one or bought one. I'm 6 hours in and I'm level 7. I think I've done only 4 main quests outside the Vault. Haven't been to Rivet City yet. Also, I did not blow up Megaton.

I always go blind into any game. Be it the Souls series or TES. Dunno why I feel so lost here in Fallout 3. I think I'm sort of Call of Dutying my way through this game, even though I don't even own a Multiplayer FPS much less a Call of Duty game. I'm always out of ammo. Always finding myself close to death. Help?

Where do I get the proper equipment? Tips on character building?

I haven't played Fallout 3 yet. However I am playing New Vegas right now and if Fallout 3 is anything like it, the enemies don't scale to your level (unlike Oblivion). So if you're trying to reach an area but can't because the enemies are too powerful, then you're probably not meant to go to that place at that time. As you do more quests you'll get more and more powerful weapons and about halfway through the game it should be relatively easy from there on out. So just focus on the main quests right now and maybe a side mission here and there if it's manageable. Are you having trouble with enemies during the main quests? And are you playing on hard?

u srs?

Fallout 3 is like Baby's 1st RPG, stats mean nothing and you have to really try very very very hard just to actually get yourself killed.

Must be a troll topic, no one needs Fallout 3 "tips".

Enemies and gear do scale in Fallout 3, just not directly to player level. Instead, enemies and gear scale in level thresholds. There are no de-levelled or "static" enemies in Fallout 3, this RPG is for babies.

Yeah, sort of. I'm on a mission where I have to go to a particular city, but there's a path there full of enemies who can kill me in maybe 4 secs. I think I may be overpowered or not. Do I just have to be more strategic on my approach there? Cause I like, gun blaze my way through. Use AP shooting on one enemy and take cover for awhile until it's fully charged. Problem is, enemies would just come shooting at me.

Do you have any side missions you can work on to level up and maybe find some better gear?
