What level is Father Gabe?



  • I'm doing a Survival play through of Fallout 4. I entered Union's Hope Cathedral outside of Cambridge (which I somehow managed to miss in all 1200 hours of prior game play), and encountered a named ghoul "Father Gabe".

    I'm level 29, and am rather cautious about attacking much higher level enemies (with the 'skull' icon) in this go-through because I'm still not too good at finding beds in the wasteland to sleep and create a save point. When I run into a higher level enemy, I make note of the location and run away, then come back when I'm a more appropriate level.

    Father Gabe shows as being much higher than me. I'm trying to figure out what his level is. Usually when this happens, I go to the Fallout wiki and check what level the NPC is -- but according to the https://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Gabe_(Fallout_4) Father Gabe is only level 1. I'm not finding any other information about his level when googling about this -- just lots of rants about how he's hostile when he really shouldn't be.

    What level is Father Gabe actually?



  • In Fallout 4, enemy levels scale with the player. However, the enemy level for your game is determined when you https://gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/242891/enemy-difficulty-scaling-in-fallout-4 .

    If you have already encountered Father Gabe, you can just level up for a little (or find better weapons and gear) and then return to the area, at which point he should still be the same level he was when you first met him, and therefore easier to dispatch. There also is https://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Gabe_(Fallout_4)#Other_interactions to pacify him.

    Note that you shouldn't turn this around and quickly access absolutely every area possible for an easy time, as this will negatively affect your game in the long run. Higher level enemies give more XP, which you need to level up to higher levels yourself.
