Fallout 4's Survival Mode is for babies. It's a slap in the face to those of us who want a real challenge. Like, for example, not being able to use something that's a fundamental element of the game. Can You Beat Fallout 4 Without A Pip-Boy?

Can You Beat Fallout 4 Without A Pip-Boy? (in text form)
The first thing to think about is SPECIAL stats. It takes time to level up and assign more points into SPECIAL down the line to get access to certain perks. And this is where I first screwed up. I assumed I’d be stuck with my fists as my only weapons, so I put 9 points into Strength and Agility, and put the rest in Endurance. The Great War began, I rushed to the vault, got frozen, then thawed out, then froze again before waking up and beginning the adventure of a lifetime. I got the 10mm Pistol and it was automatically equipped, something I forgot about. Putting all those points into Strength may have been a mistake. Oh well, I’m not going back.
There it is, the vault door. You might be thinking that I’m going to use console commands to just remove the Pip-Boy after escaping the vault. I got 2 words for ya: Flip. That. We don’t need the Pip-Boy to escape. We just need our old friend cone. Pick up an object, back yourself into a wall, look down, and start jumping. If you do it right, you’ll start sliding up the wall. It took me about 30 minutes to do this. Eventually, you’ll line up just right and will clip over the vault door. After that, you’re home free.
Fresh out of the vault, my first stop was at Sanctuary to use the You’re Special book and talk to Codsworth. Before I left the vault, I noticed a few things. 1) You don’t need a Pip-Boy to use Stimpaks or Radaway. They’re set to specific keys. Bring up your Pip-Boyless arm, press a button, and you’re healed. 2) The 10mm Pistol is automatically favorited, so you can swap between unarmed and the Pistol on the fly.
By now, I found Dogmeat, who will be my item mule for the foreseeable future, and moseyed my way to Concord, where the Minutemen were being picked off like fish in a barrel. I dealt with the Raiders, picked up the Fusion Core, and went up to the roof. I used the Power Armor to pick up the Minigun, then exited the Power Armor. With the Minigun automatically equipped, I could use it to make quick work of the remaining Raiders as well as the Deathclaw. Dogmeat went and made a mess of himself, but he recovered. I spoke to Preston and made sure the Minutemen would be at Sanctuary Hills.
You might be wondering why the game looks a little barren. It’s not a mod. The only mod I have increases the amount of blood. Several months ago, I was playing around with Fallout 4’s .ini file. One of the things I did while in that file was disable grass. So, that’s why it looks the way it does. Moving on, without a map, I made an educated guess as to where Diamond City was. I was actually looking for Park Street Station so I could rescue Nick Valentine. I’d have settled for either of them. Well, I took a wrong turn or something because I wound up in the Glowing Sea. Don’t waste your time asking how the flipper I got so far off track, because I have no idea.
A not insignificant amount of time later, I was inside the city proper. Not Diamond City. Heavens no, that’s still a ways off. I encountered Brother Simon, who led me into a trap. I wasn’t about to hand over all my stuff, so I killed him and all of his followers, expending all of my ammo in the process. The good news is that, unlike Fallout New Vegas, you can bash people with your gun, which sometimes gives a really satisfying animation.
