Fallout 4: Here’s How To Fire Weapon From Cover


Fallout 4 is an action RPG where players can switch between first and third person view. Since the core of the game revolves around it being a shooter, there are some mechanics that aren’t fully explained including the fact that there is the ability to hide behind a cover and shoot from it.

Reddit user ChiefALeef has shared this neat tip on how to fire from a cover. He detailed it with screenshots of the step by step instructions. Check them out below.

1. Go towards the area you want to shoot safely in cover from.

2. Get up close to the cover until your weapon draws down.

3. Hold aim and you will pop your weapon from the cover. Once you let go of aiming, you will automatically go back into cover.

It is rather strange that despite the game having the mechanics of a cover system, just like in Far Cry, it never bothers to explain them in detail. Nevertheless, it is good to know now that we can fire from cover in Fallout 4.

Fallout 4 was released on November 10th for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
