    I started on Survival but changed down to VHard becuase the healing was too slow.

    They need a "hard core" mode where everything has weight, and you need to eat, drink and sleep. Then add no fast travel and call it "true hard core".

    That should have been Survival Mode but they failed to deliver.

    Are people that scared to admit what level they are playing at or have they stopped playing already.

    I'm on Very Easy with one character but going to ditch it soon for Survival. Just not enough challenge in it at that level. Still a good game to play but yeah.

    Playing on Very Hard level. If you want to just go with the story(s) and generally wander around aimlessly (don't we all!) then go with a lower level.

    I've been playing on Normal and only feel challenged by really big monsters that surprise me (like mirelurk queens in waterlogged basements).

    This is exactly what I'm doing so have left my level at Very Easy. Even at this level the end fight for Reunion on level 11 was a challenge. Especially since I'm only using a modded 10mil pistol. Died 4 times. Get the feeling I might need to level up a little more to take on the rest of the story.

    I tend to play a solo build but a few trophies need to be unlocked on the PS4 before I can take Lone Wanderer. ie. max relationship with a companion and 100% happy settlement.

    If I get these 2 achievements I might be tempted to give a higher level game play a go with a more specific build. ie. restart.

    So this is what I have decided to do.

    Progressional leveling.
