I still think the DC brotherhood are a bunch of pansy's, why spend all that time and manpower helping out all these little settlements? The DC area is fucked no matter what those power armored boyscouts think they can do. If Maxson was still around he would have had that idiot Lyons shot.

PERHAPS! But I still got Power Armour Training from them, and you can bet your froggy ass that if the regular Brotherhood was running the show still, you wouldn't get ANY help from the Brotherhood at all.

Not so, if it was the brotherhood there would be none left in the DC area by the time the game starts. ANd there would always be the Anchorage simulation for power armor training, that's how I got to wear my Winterized T-51b.

I downloaded the increased spawns mod and a mod that adds a ton of weapons to the game(mostly reskins with new stats but still).

Raiders actually become a threat again when they start bringing M82's.

I've had them become a threat when the game for some reason started spawning tons of them in one area. Fighting 20+ Raiders at once in one open field and very little ammo is tough.

That sounds like massive amounts of fun. If you HAD the MIRV, you could have toasted all of them with one shot.

That would have been boring. Though I did have a rocket launcher from supermutants I fought.

I remember in Fo1 I managed to miss with a rocket launcher and kill everyone following me. God damn deathclaws, getting so close.

One (with two casualties)

Unfortunately I could have really used one of their weapons in the fight... My Missle blew it up.

 I have heard rumors of a fatboy that fires off five shots at once in this game. True or false?

Though it is the pure definition of Overkill... You really don't need that many shots.

True. It's calles the Multiple Independent Reentry Vehicle, obtainable in National Guard.
There is some data on http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Experimental_MIRV and on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIRV.
Note though that Wikia has a lot of spoilers including where and how to get it. The Wikipedia is just a reference to a real-life military weapon.

And yeah, first time I fired with the MIRV I blew myself and all my companions and 10 supermutants to shreds (with increased spawn mod). It was pretty awesome.
