The Outer Worlds Melee Build

The Outer Worlds Melee Build

If you want to bludgeon people into submission then this might be the build for you! We’re focusing on one handed melee in this build, so you should be able to move around and quickly beat your enemies with whatever instrument you happen to have. You can switch this to a two handed melee build with some minor adjustments. You will want to take advantage of your companions in this build, so we’re going to pick up some perks that help them out.

If you want to go two handed melee instead, take Temperament instead of Dexterity and change your Aptitude to Bureaucrat or Factory Worker.
