Science

Science is a special perk in Fallout 4 required for upgrading some weapons with mods and for using other important objects like Laser Turrets and so on.

Ranks

  • Rank 1: Take full advantage of advanced technology with access to base level and Rank 1 high-tech mods.
  • Rank 2: You gain access to Rank 2 high-tech mods. (Requires: Level 17)
  • Rank 3: You gain access to Rank 3 high-tech mods. (Requires: Level 23)
  • Rank 4: You gain access to Rank 4 high-tech mods. (Requires: Level 41)

Simple weapon modifications and simple objects don’t require any skills, but if you wish to use some really cool upgrades you will have to advance in Science perk.

    Rank 4 is also needed for MIRV launcher, Stealth suit and other things.
