Second entry of the Fallout 4 'SPECIAL' series sings the praises of being perceptive


Cartoon violence is best violence

You know, being “SPECIAL” isn’t all about being some strong, gallant, tough guy of the apocalypse. Sometimes it just means having a good head on your shoulders, a keen eye, and some nimble fingers, as aptly demonstrated by the second entry of this Vault-Tec educational series.

The video implies that Perception will not only be a key attribute for spotting enemies and accuracy in the VATS targeting mode, but also an important element of stealth, burglary, and pickpocketing. As someone who has really enjoyed making sneaky characters in previous Fallout games, I’m excited to see that part of the gameplay upfront and center in a trailer.
