Fallout 4 weapon names support some HTML tags

Fallout 4's mightiest weapon shall henceforth be known as Deliverer. Formatting essential. Opinion subjective.

Mind blown: in Fallout 4, you can rename your weapons, and the naming system supports basic HTML codes.

The video above was shared by shadowmar on Twitter, and shows bold, italic and bullet point tags in action.

I tested this myself on PS4 to confirm, and yep, it works. Just start your name with a pair of lesser-than and greater-than signs, with "b" (bold) "i" (italic) or "li" (list - bullet point) sandwiched between them. The tag doesn't show up outside the renaming panel, and you don't need a closing tag.

I should have another go and see if blink and marquee codes will work. Jokes aside, it's a great way to make your favourite weapons even easier to find in Fallout 4's sometimes overwhelming menu interface.
