I had played Fallout: New Vegas and after completing main story, in narration it was said that raiders with their leader figure survived in northern area.

I want to know if in Fallout 4, do the hostile NPCs have leaders whom we can kill or maybe do missions for?

For example, Mirelurk Queen at The Castle.

  • I believe you're referring to the Great Khans, which were a distinct faction, not random raiders. Papa Khan was not the leader of the "raiders".

Some do, some don't, it really depends on the group. There's a group of bandits held up in the auto factory with a leader named Jared. There's eventually a quest to kill him, but even if you don't take the quest, he's there.

Other groups are just bandits with no leader. My guess would be that if there's a named leader, there's probably a quest to kill him/her at some point in the game.

    There are many raider settlements with named leaders. But someone who is like the main guy of raiders in boston. Commented Apr 1, 2016 at 22:19

    I've not come across any such person. I doubt the raiders are that organized -- they just have roving bands rather than a big convention to elect their leaders. :)

  • Agreed — no, Fallout 4 doesn’t have an ending that tells you if entire populations survived or not. In fact, even groups with named leaders don’t really go away forever when you kill the leader: For example, the Forged eventually regenerate at their base.
