Bethesda has released the second in its series of Fallout 4 videos looking at the RPG’s S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system. This latest educational trailer for vault dwellers looks at the importance of Perception, which is a one-way ticket to cheesing the combat mechanics with VATS (Vault Assisted Targeting System).
Fallout fans will remember VATS of course, the aiming system which allows players to target specific limbs of enemies. Targeting weaknesses is often trickier, but provides greater damage bonuses. Perception helps boost your accuracy in these situations, so you can riddle Radscorpions with bullets. Perception also allows you to sneak about and steal things in Fallout 4, or reconnoitre enemy levels and weaknesses from a distance.
Last week we took a look at the importance of Strength for wasteland survivors.
Fallout 4 is stepping out of the vault on November 10th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
