I'm wondering whether its possible to dodge melee attacks by crouching in Fallout 4? I know it works in other games like Dishonored and Resident Evil 7 so I'm curious.


No, it isn't. The attack will still hit your hitbox.

    Can you provide additional sources for that? – plocks Apr 1 '18 at 9:45

    There is no physical parry/dodge system in any Fallout game. There is no need for source. It's a well-known design decision. – deutschZuid Apr 2 '18 at 9:58
  • It's quite simple to prove this point. In the end it's a BGS game and we do have access to the CK as well as to tools like nifscope. While shooting mechanics got improved quite a bit in this iteration of the engine, melee is pretty much still the same old inaccurate hack-hack-slash-slash we all know and "love" from previous Fallout and TES games. – metaphor_set May 16 '18 at 20:47
