Alright, so I'll say it: these guys tear me a new one whenever I find them. I'm a level 8 right now, so maybe that is the source of the problem, but regardless, I was wondering if anyone has a good tactic for taking them down.
I haven't really experimented with ammo types yet so maybe that would help, but for the most part it's basically "hey it's a deathcl- *falls dead after one swipe*".
Then rise from your seat, take a several steps back, lower your head, and run at your monitor as fast as you can. XBL GT: WELL GUESS WHAT
With nightstalkers, I just unload an automatic weapon on them. With deathclaws, however, you either get them with a sneak attack from an AMR, or VATS the hell out of their head, using armor piercing rounds with whichever option you pick.

just avoid deathclaws for now and when you cant avoid them try to break their legs so they can't get you and the nightstalkers getting ED-E in primm will help as you can Vats target them when they are invisible.

Deathclaws are straight up nasty; avoid them if possible. Night Stalkers are only a problem in packs, but even then they aren't that bad if you can climb up out of their reach and then rain death on them.
