I had to use the anti-materiel gun at the very end of the game because herp derp spoilers, but I didn't have too much trouble with that (but my character abused the hell out of chems, and I had the lowers-str-req stuff, so maybe I was doing okay with Buffout + Steady.)

No no no, not a sniper. Anti-Material Gun. It's the kind of sniper from WW2 that they used to punch through tanks >.> .50 cal ammo. Until I beef up a bit, it's just a really awesome shotgun. No seriously, it slams Ghouls into the wall so hard they'd be filled with shattered bones xD

Which is sort of like swatting flies with a sledgehammer since I rag-doll them from outside VATs range with my enhanced Varmit rifle.

Has any body put a cap in that Rat the kids are chasing around in Freeside yet?

Yep, and almost vomited x.x

The Varmint Rifle was great with a silencer, scope and extended mag, but after a while, it was just too weak... I had to upgrade.

I've found the hunting rifle is plenty to get the job done. Its a step up from the varmint rifle and with a good sneak attack can take the head off of just about everything I've come up against. I also suggest getting Boone the sniper to join your party, as he can usually pick off anything you can't in just a few shots.
 
I do want to try the actual sniper rifle, but so far haven't got up enough caps. I'm also curious if there is a silencer for the hunting rifle as well.

Haven't seen one yet (silencer) but the action, scope and mags make Boone a happy camper now that I turned in four snowglobes and got my very own sniping rifle to go try out.

Giving evil a try. My SPECIAL is 10,1,10,1,1,7,10. If he can't eat it, punch it, or blow it up, he doesn't care xD.

Oh, and he's hispanic. Bald with a Pedro stash. Names Horhay. He's sick of mopping your floors, eh.

What was yours? Mine was six heavily armed legionaire assassins with a mad on for me.

As is my custom, my first character is all over the place. High perception ( four eyes, lolz ), high agility, high intelligence, low luck, low charisma and mediocre everything else. Well, except one extra point in endurance. Brotherhood of Steel, you know. Can't slouch in that power armor. My skills ... likewise. It was easier in Fallout 3. With some skills, like speech, playing a much larger role, it's harder to ignore them. I'd probably be better off starting a new character with better focus, but damn, the game is huge. Just getting to where I'm at now took longer than most games take to finish, and I'm nowhere near done. It's insanely huge.

Haha, appearance-wise, my character resembles Damian Lewis. Don't ask.

My current build is an red-head Asian chick named Vigil. High intelligence, agility, and endurance. Low strength, charisma, average perception and high luck. Uses one handed firearms only. (It can be done but you have to get a lot of mods.)

Small frame, and kamikazi (wrap your head around that).

Current loadout. 10mm machine pistol, 9mm machine pistol (though it has a stock, anyone else notice that) .357 with a pretty cylinder that makes it unbreakable basically and hopefully soon a long barrel. Silenced .22. I know I need to find something better, oh and a sawed-off for when things need to die. Slugs for the win!

Oh, and advice. Don't change difficulty in game. It can cause issues...

The conversation Perks are actually worth it this time... I got Black Widow and Cherchez Le Femme. Well worth picking.

They give some pretty strong perks in conversation.  In FO3 it was all about saving money and giving an alternate path to getting what you want, in FNV they let you do things you couldn't otherwise such as letting you bypass certain quests, etc.  The same-sex perks also sorta allow you to roleplay gay characters in some circumstances -- primarily when interacting with other characters who are gay.

Speaking of which, I didn't see anything about that here, but spoilers about two companions that are homosexual:  Veronica and Arcade.  I was really pleased they included some gay companions. :D

Damn it Obsidian! I had to scrap my character (see above post of mine) because Obsidian can't be bothered to bug test! Seriously did they just ship it with every bug and said, "F it we'll patch it later!"? I'm just made because it glitched out on me and every time I walked into the Crimson Caravan Co. Everyone in the building magically turns hostile and kills me! Not to mention a broken companion quest! E-D My Love.

Are you sure you weren't wearing an outfit that causes them to be hostile when you walked into the crimson caravan, such as a powder ganger outfit?

I thought of that. So I stripped to my character to her skivvies and told both my companions to beat it and herp-a-derp they still shot me to pieces. Not just the guards, no the caravaners themselves pulled out whatever heat they had and went to town. It's a glitch. I'm really just mad but I really wanted that character to do a lot of the quests and to scrap her over a bug is just painful.
