I recently finished the main story line (at level 17 or so) and with Fawkes by my side I'm beginning to run out of difficult things to kill..
Out of curiosity... What is the hardest thing to kill, in the game (vanilla and DLC)? I went to the Deathclaw Sanctuary and Fawkes didn't allow me to even hit a deathclaw before he sprayed their brains all over the walls. Is there anything that will give Fawkes a run for his money?
^ I've shot 2 rounds (16 mini nukes) with the Experimental MIRV at Fawkes and Dogmeat, and they did not get a scratch. When I was hunting down the Giant Super Mutants, Fawkes basically took them all down. It was a good thing too because the one at the Jury Street Metro Station popped up behind me and when I turned around Fawkes was already gunning them down. He makes them game too easy and steals a lot of my kills, but he does save you a lot of times, too.

There is one place that could kill Fawkes. Go to Franklin Metro Utility at say level 17 or whenever this area spawns Reavers (probably even lower?). On very hard, I doubt Fawkes could make it out alive.
I went there so early, about the same level that Reavers appeared and I absolutely could not even get past the first two reavers at the entrance on very hard (no NPC). There was two right inside the door and about a dozen or more elsewhere.
Other then "Fort Bannister" this is the most difficult area of the game at lower levels on very hard.
The one enemy I fear the most is Albino Scorpions on very hard. I don't like to use my highest powered weapon because it seems to take away the fun.
