I play as a female character and a relatively significant amount of times (roughly once every 4-10 hours of gameplay) Some character will refer to my character with male pronouns (he/his). Has any one else had this experience of being misgendered by NPCs?

Update: just wanted to add that I play on a ps4

    @DJPirtu It seems straight forward enough to me. "does fallout 4 misgender your character?" and "Has any one else had this experience of being misgendered by NPCs?" are both yes/no questions. Not a lot of conversation necessary, just a screencap or link to a quotation page on the wiki for proof. I normally make a female sniper/melee type as my second character, so if no one else answers I'll be able to eventually. Jan 5 '16 at 11:07

    @gatherer818 I agree with you on the first. Altough the asker has already answered that question. The latter is technicly a yes/no question, but is in a form of a form of a usual conversation opener, why I suggested reviewing the tour to make sure the asker is aware of how our site operates. Also, help center and help center are worth looking over.

    @DJPirtu feel free to make an edit if you feel it'll make the question clearer, I personally can't see any issue with it. Jan 5 '16 at 11:45

    FWIW: I'm playing a female character, with over 150 hours in this playthrough, and I'm pretty sure I've never had any NPCs refer to her with masculine pronouns.

    Yes, at least half a dozen NPCs have misgendered me. The robots dialog was just particularly memorable.

It happens to my female character, quite often. My friends mentioned such bugs, too.

    I've played through the game multiple times, including twice as a female, and never had this happen even once. Without a single reproducible example, I'm going to have to question the claim that this happens "quite often".

  • I understand you. But, I don't think I can go back all the way to find those particular scenes where the said error occurs. I'm, maybe, one of those rare cases. I even chanced upon this page only while googling my problem. Perhaps, you have a better update installed.

    I can confirm that this also happens to my female character. Feb 1 '16 at 4:24
