    A few nights ago I got drunk, and started to wonder if Frank Horrigan could match a Space Marine, as he is basically a Fallout version of a Space Marine. Then even while drunk remembered that was stupid. Now after work, less drunk me wonders that same thing, but with multiple Franks in a few different scenarios

    S1: How many Franks to beat a stock Standard 40k Smurf. The Smurf has a Bolter and Powersword. Franks are Unarmed.

    S2: Now the Franks have their plasma casters

    S3: The Franks one again unarmed take on a Black Raged up Marine in Terminator armor.

    S4: The Franks now take on a Primaris Marine in Terminator armor.

    Frank Horrigan's tough but he's never gonna touch a Space Marine really. Space Marines' speeds are pretty ridiculous while Fallout in general lacks speed feats.

    Yeah I figured that the speed difference would be a thing, but I thought numbers might make this a interesting match :/

    I don't think he meant how many Frank Horrigans it would take to kill a space marine, but how many Primarchs it would take to kill Frank Horrigan. :maybe

    I mean Frank is stronger than fodder like Moira Brown who can tank nukes without any armor or protection and just turn into ghouls afterward.

    You also got Ulysses who with just that mask of his tanked several nukes.

    And Frank is more than likely stronger than Ulysses is.

    So he should be at least town level if not higher in strength and durability. And that’s a lowball given how far above he is than the likes of Moira Brown.

    Nah Liberty Prime would shitrekt Frank pretty hard.

    Liberty Prime is likely the strongest character in Fallout altogether.

    Frank can fight with characters that use VATS tbh and they can perceive shit like missiles as frozen in mid air or slow motion, and hit them long before they reach their target.

    Never played the originals... but if agility affects their ability to dodge attacks and they’re shooting each other with lasers :maybe

    That's true.

    Imperial Guard have rushed and killed Chaos SMs using just their standard gear. Sure the Chaos SM killed dozens before he went down...but still, he was brought down.

    You refer to the ghosts and Ibram Gaunt? I think he had a Power Sword which cut through even SM armor like butter. Top tier weapon basically. But yeha, there are incidents like this.

    And we have Dinas Chayne an amped Lucifer Black outbattling Alpharius, a Primarch in direct 1v1 swordplay :cat

    I was actually thinking of the Pandorax Campaign. Chaos SMs were being warped onto the IGs main battleship called the Revenge.

    The Captain basically told his crew and officers they had the option of abandoning the ship...or if you want, you can join me and take back this ship. They encountered a few Chaos SMs (walking around on their own), and they just rushed them. Sure heaps of the Imperials died, but on the way they, they found more crewman/officers on the different decks to join and they fought on.

    Of course, it was the Dark Angels and Grey Knights who actually change things around when they finally teleported on-board, but by that time the Captain's skull had already been crunched against the bulkhead by one of the Chaos SM.

    Gotta love the Imps. No need to fear the eye of terror. Just throw some tens of billions Guardsmen at it and all will be good :cat
