Ghouls are those shriveled up, highly aggressive enemies you tend to encounter in dark alleyways and lower levels of caves and other establishments. They are very fast and rely on quick, irradiated strikes. One may seem simple enough to take down, but Fallout 4 almost never throws only one at you. These guys can be vicious when facing a number of them; luckily, their limbs are easy to take out.
Using pretty much any weapon (including weak ones like the pipe pistol), aim directly for the legs. If you can take out a Ghoul’s leg, it is no longer a threat. Even strong ones become victims. It will lay helplessly on the floor until you walk up and put it out of its misery.
