Forums: Index > Fallout 3 general discussion > Thoughts on Super Mutant Overlords?

I was playing fallout 3 when I went to GNR studios, I came across my first overlord added on by the Broken Steel DLC. And to be frank I shat myself, the guy was the most powerful thing ever, even worse, as I was on the quest to find dad, Lyons Pride were there, and got decimated by the brute, he had a gattling laser and ambled over to the fatman on the dead body, it was like a movie scene, I emptied clip after clip into the bastard, he refused to die, in the end I managed to kill him and I took 3 stimpaks, 200 EC packs and the gattling laser and fatman. So I want to know, HOW THE FUCK DO YOU KILL THE BASTARD, if anyone can help me with this one game tip I will help you on any situation you need advice with. Tips for Tips if you get that, anyway, please help, Im off to vault 87 and there were two there last time :( PLEASE HELP ME, give me advice, thanks Ryanurch (talk) 16:58, August 12, 2012 (UTC)

Chinese stealth armor/stealth boy is very usefull. If you have it just sneak close to overlord and put frag mine in his pocket. Or kill him with Jack, that s cheaper. Without chinese stealth armor it s a bit harder. Shoot his weapon out of his hands and start shooting him with combat/terrible shotgun or plasma rifle while moving backward. Or snipe him and try to stay hidden. -- 21:04, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

You can't RPP explosives on overlords. Any other super mutant yes, but not them. --DeadlyPrey(talk) 18:50, September 1, 2012 (UTC)

Ugh, and just wait til you come across a Feral Ghoul Reaver... not a lot of fun. I ended up just trying to avoid them. --writemikep 18:04, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

I just finished going to vault 87 to get the GECK and I don’t know if it was a glitch or because I’m at level 24, but every single mutant there was an overlord. They would come at me two at a time, each with a tri-beam laser, and they tore me a new one. I just used VATS on them, then ran like hell and hid until my AP went back up then went at them again, eventually I got through it.

Even sneak attacks do little damage to them, if it wasn't for the fact that they all had that damn tri-beam it wouldn't have been so bad but those things cut through you fast. ReapTheChaos (talk) 20:48, November 29, 2012 (UTC)
