This article will tell you everything about Attributes in Fallout 4. You will understand what for they are requited and how to distribute them.
When you start the game you need to create character. Character creation process is easy and rather interesting. We have dedicated article about this. One of the steps during character creation is distributing Attribute points. This step begins after you open the door and see Vault Tech agent. The agent asks you to tell more information about you. You will see special screen where you can tweak characteristics of your character.
There are 7 core attributes: Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility and Luck form the acronym S.P.E.C.I.A.L. They determine basic power and possibilities of your hero.
The way you distribute your Attribute points affects Perks you are able to access. Each attribute has 10 perks connected with it. The more points you invest in definite attribute the deeper perks you can reach. For example 3 points in Agility give you access to Sneak perk, 4 points to Mister Sandman perk, 5 points to Action Boy and so on.
You need to spend 10 points in order to reach deepest perks. But only 21 points are available. As you see you can’t reach all the perks in Fallout 4 because the number of points you have for your attributes is limited.
The way you distribute your Attribute points is your character build. Some players may decide to maximize only 2 characteristics reaching the deepest perks while other may decide to create an average character with wide range of skills. What is better: to focus on one or two characteristics or to distribute points between all avaliable attributes? We don't know. You are free to create your own hero. All builds have their advantages and disadvantages but don’t forget that you can’t be a master in all areas simultaneously.
Here is a build from official Game Trailer made by Bethesda. Please note: this build is not for “Copy - Pasting”! You don’t have to use this build. We recommend you to get familiar with all the perks before you start playing and make you own build depending on your focus in the game.
