Skip introduction sequence:
Use a text editor to edit the "Fallout4.ini" and "Fallout4Prefs.ini" files in the directory: "\Users\[username]\Documents\My Games\Fallout4\ ".
Find the [General] section and add the line SIntroSequence=1 in both files.
Crafting For Settlement:
First, you will need to meet Preston Garvey and his band of survivors before you start crafting. In Sanctuary, you will get a quest from a man called Sturges, who will provide you with the basis of the crafting thing. This will allow you to build beds and other structures, dealing with water, food and establishing defenses. Once you learn the basics, get back to the Workshop menu and look at the bar at the top of the screen, that will tell you in synthesis the resources which you need to build useful items. You can "tag for search" certain items so you know, while traveling along your trip into the Wasteland. You can even scrap items in your own settlement to craft stuff you need.
Two things you will need to remember as your settlement arise and grows in size: you will have to deal with power generators close to each item you will place and needs power to work (i.e. A radio tower); people who inhabit your refuge can also guard spots and artillery cannons, so they are an actual resource you can use at your favor.
Where To Find All The Companions:
You can see below a list of companions you will meet throughout the game, with their specific properties, pros included, and the locations where you will find them.

What You Need To Know To Be A Proper Cannibal:
While playing you will be able to eat various human races (Caucasian, African American, Hispanic and Asian) and a series of monsters ranging from Ghouls to Super Mutants. The best "cuts of meat" are Sweet Breads (aka Kidneys), Shank (Calfs), Ribs, Gummies (Ears) and Liver.
This is what you need in terms of S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats to start with cannibalism:
As for the first perks, the things you need to do first is to bring Charisma to 10 so you can unlock the Indimation perk and Strength to 3 for Blacksmith melee weapon modifications.
Then you can get these perks in the order you prefer:
The best weapons for your cannibalism purposes are Ripper, Butcher Clever and Kitchen Knife, although there's a chance you might be willing to have a more classic approach with Power Fist, Brass or Spiked Knuckles, Bare Fists. Be careful as you don't want to be caught while having your… meal.
Easy "Future Retro" achievement:
Holotape games can be played at Recreation Terminals. There is one at the beginning of the game, when you enter Vault 111. It is in the kitchen on the lower floor. You can either pick it up when you first visit the vault, or return later at any time. As soon as you start the Holotape Game, you will get the "Future Retro" achievement. You do not have to complete it. You can collect the Holotape games from terminals to play them later in your Pip Boy.
Go to any vendor where you can find any type of ammunition. Choose to purchase all of the same type of ammo, but do not confirm the purchase. After it appears on your side of the transaction screen, choose the ammo on your side of the screen and give one round of ammo back to the vendor. Then, choose to give all the ammo back to the vendor. If done correctly, you will have one round
of ammo remaining on your side of the transaction screen. You can select that round of ammunition repeatedly to get all of the vendor's caps.
Completing "Road To Freedom" quest:
The "Road To Freedom" quest is required to find and join the Railroad faction and progress in "The Molecular Level" main quest. You will get the "Tradecraft" achievement for joining the Railroad faction. This quest can be tricky due to the lack of waypoints and map markers. The quest can be started by either overhearing people in Diamond City Market or by progressing
in "The Molecular Level" main quest. To overhear people talking about it (may need to be done at night), when you enter Diamond City Market, take the far left path to "Third Detective", then turn right to find a guy welding and talking to another guy about the Railroad. The first waypoint at Park Street Station will be displayed on your map. Normally the quest tells you to
follow some lanterns and pick up password pieces along the way, but you can skip those tasks, unless you want the waypoint to Old North Church to appear on the map. Otherwise, just head directly to Old North Church, in the northeast. Go to the basement and locate the crest that says "Boston: The Freedom Trail". Use the "Freedom Trail Ring" to enter the password "Railroad" to get in. To actually join the Railroad faction, you must complete the "Tradecraft" follow-up
quest. The quest is given to you by Deacon after your first talk with the Railroad leader.
Surviving long drops:
Save the game just before hitting the ground after falling from a fatal height. Load the saved and you will land safely on the ground.
Easy Power Armor early in game:
There are four different Power Armor types: T-45, T-51, T-60, X-01. The video below shows how to easily find some of them early in the game. The type of armor you get depends on your character level. If you are only Level 5, chances are you will get T-45 parts, which are the weakest. If you are Level 50, you probably will get T-60 and X-01 armor. However, it is slightly random what armor type you will find in each area. Save the game before collecting parts. If you do not like the part you get, load the saved game to see if you
get a different part next time. Most of the parts already have fusion cores installed. Thus, if you simply want a fusion core, you can check these locations and extract it from the Power Armor. Upgrades can be made at Power Armor stations to further improve the armor rating. Some of them require an upgraded Hacker perk for Advanced and Expert terminals. You can go to all these locations immediately when the game begins. Note: There are more
armor locations than shown in the video below. Even enemies wear them, and you can loot it. There are many ways to obtain new parts, but these are just the easiest locations to get them early in the game.
First, join the Brotherhood Of Steel, which can be done immediately after the game starts. You can join by going to Cambridge Police Station or just following the main story. Either way triggers the "Reveille" and "Fire Support" quests. Follow the Brotherhood's quest line until they make you a member. Then, complete their "Tour Of Duty" quest, where you will meet everyone on the airship. Next, make sure to have a high-damage Sniper Rifle with a long-range
scope (should be 50+ damage, which can be bought from vendors in Diamond City or Bunker Hill). After joining the Brotherhood Of Steel, travel to Prydwen (their airship headquarters), and talk to Proctor Quinlan. Choose to assist on a patrol, and he will give you the "Learning Curve" quest. After activating the quest, go to the deck of the airship. Make sure to set the difficulty to Very Easy. Instead of doing the quest the normal way, you can shoot the
Brotherhood ally you are supposed to protect right from the airship, and it will end the quest. He dies with 1-4 headshots on the Very Easy difficulty. After killing your ally, the quest immediately ends, but you still get to keep the reward for the quest. Make sure you crouch and are "hidden" before firing a shot and remain hidden before taking a single step or the guards will kill you since you have just killed one of their members below. Then, return to the quest giver for your XP. He will give you the exact same quest again. Repeat
this as many times as desired. Each run takes approximately 90 seconds with loading times if you can kill the target in one hit (use strong .50 caliber sniper rifle).
If your Intelligence level is at 11, you will get approximately 419 XP for completing the quest, plus 42XP for killing the target. That is 461 XP in 90 seconds or 3,073 XP in 10 minutes if all goes smoothly. Even with less Intelligence, you can still easily score around 2,500 XP in 10 minutes. Use this method to quickly reach Level 50 and get the "Legend Of The Wastes" achievement.
Easy Fusion Cores early in game:
Fusion Cores are needed to use Power Armor. The video below shows how to easily find 10 Fusion Cores early in the game. You can start collecting these right when the game starts.You can also buy them from vendors (for example, each Fusion Core costs approximately 500 caps in Diamond City).
Repairing, upgrading, and painting Power Armor:
Power Armor provides a lot of protection and makes the game much easier. However, the armor breaks after a while and you will have to repair it at one of the Power Armor stations. The first station is found in Sanctuary. Repairs only cost steel, which is easy to come by. You have to go there while inside your Power Armor and put it near the station. Going there without your armor does nothing. Painting it in new colors does not just change the look, but it also provides bonuses such as increased charisma or perception. Upgrading it obviously increases the armor rating, but requires the Science and Armorer perks.
Item duplication and unlimited stats:
Get Dogmeat and return to Sanctuary. Find the "You're Special!" book in the crib and use it. Drop it to the ground from your inventory. Tell Dogmeat to pick it up, but quickly collect it before he does so. If done correctly, he will drop the item and it will still be in your inventory (this can be done with any item to duplicate it). Pick up the copy Dogmeat dropped and to have two "You're Special" books. Drop both books on the ground and one should activate again. To get unlimited books to increase your stats as desired, drop the book and duplicate it. Drop both books and pick them up. Drop one
book and duplicate it, drop all the books and pick them up, then repeat by dropping one book and duplicating it.

Infinite Bartering with Arturo (Exploit):
You can sell unlimited items to Arturo in Diamond City, which makes extremely
expensive items available to you early in the campaign. Start by defeating
enemies and looting areas until you have a few hundred caps in your possession.
Then head to Diamond City and speak with Arturo. Look at his wares, and indicate
your wish to purchase all of his ammo of a particular type but do not finalize
the deal. Instead, access your items and sell a single unit of the ammo you just bought from him. Then, sell any remainder of that same ammo type. There is a game bug that keeps a single unit of that ammo in your inventory, which you can sell to him continuously. Though you can't use this glitch to obtain more caps than Arturo has on hand, you can repeatedly sell him glitched ammo to build up your resources. It's possible to use the trick with any type of ammo Arturo sells, as long as you have the initial caps required (though it can take some time and a lot of button presses). If you do everything properly, you can obtain all kinds of powerful equipment. However, keep in mind that the glitch is only effective when dealing with Arturo.
Surviving Great Falls:
If you've fallen from a terrible height, normally that would be the end of you.
However, you can save your game just before you hit the ground, then load your
save and you will land safely. Whew!
