Fallout 4 Players Are Torturing Their Favourite Characters With The Contraptions DLC

The new Fallout 4 Contraptions Workshop DLC just yesterday, and people have been quick to put it to good use. And by "good" I mean "kiiiind of evil". Contraptions gives players a variety of different tools that allow for the building of complex machines and gadgets. In the GIF above, for example, Father trapped characters like Preston Garvey and Mama Murphy in pillories, and then build a machine to endlessly launch teddy bears straight at their faces. It's kind of hilarious (skip to the two minute mark if you want to get straight to the hijinks):

The more the machines run, the more the teddy bears pile up:

But my favourite part of this contraption is that once Father lets Preston go from this teddy bear hell, Preston immediately launches into chatter about saving a settlement. Of course.

For IAGO, a set-up like the one above is too simple. Instead, this player built a full-on Rube Goldberg machine, and it is excellent.

To get the ball rolling, first you must take guidance from Todd Howard himself:

The contraption then unfolds magnificently, as you can see below:

It's not until the end that you realise that the elaborate construction is actually just a gadget used to shoot paintballs at Preston Garvey's butt:

Poor Preston. He just wants to help other people out; he doesn't deserve this, you guys!

    I can just about guarantee there are a couple of designers over at Bethesda who laugh along with everyone else at Preston Garvey quest-giving memes on the outside, but who are secretly raging internally. "IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE LIKE THAT"

    Preston "Do you think we ready to take back the castle?"
    Player "How Did you lose the.,,... GET BACK TO YOUR POST!!"

    I wouldn't say we are torturing our favourite characters by any means.

    Preston is the enemy of all that is good in the world.

    Down-voted this DLC, Preston refuses to get in it and the others only get in them when they feel like it and decide to leave it.
    Still really RAW they keep releasing workshop DLC and jacked up the price only after creating 2 DLC for the season pass.

      Out of the six DLC announced, three are story DLC, two are workshops and one is the ability to build your own vault. Seems like a reasonable balance.
