Anyone else doing their first playthrough as a melee and/or unarmed character?

Fallout 3 was too easy. So I'm going to put it on hardcore from the start and mainly use melee weapons. I'll still put a few points in small guns in case of enemies that are out of my reach, but melee weapons will be my focus.

I'm looking forward to being able to just sell most of my ammo. I'll be rolling in caps!
Thanks, iNSANE!

I doubt I will ever play as unarmed in a fallout game but i might try melee on a second play through

You might also want to invest points in speech so you can avoid some fights.

I really never used melee weapons. The only one i used was the Shishkebab because it looked cool. I guess they could be pretty reliable if i maxed out my melee/unarmed skill. But it's my preference, i like killing from a distance.

They're great until you meet snipers.

Stealth playthrough 1st, as usual.

I'm gonna go all out in my first playthrough like I did with FO3, find out what guns and weapons I like & dislike.

All my playthroughs are a mix of Melee, Sneak, And Sniping.
