Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • V.A.T.S. : Short for "Vault-Tec-Assisted Targeting System". While using V.A.T.S., the otherwise real-time combat is paused. Various actions cost Action Points, and the user can target specific body areas for attacks, inflicting specific injuries. When using V.A.T.S. against enemies, seven different areas can be targeted: the head, torso, left arm, right arm, currently held weapon, left leg, and right leg. However, there may be other points available when facing off non-humanoid creatures (e.g. robot combat inhibitors, ant antennae). When targeting a part, the screen displays a percentage of how likely the attack will hit the targeted area based on distance from the target, visibility of the targeted body part, and combat skill. The percentage of a hit cannot be any higher than 95%, so there is a small 5% chance to actually miss.
  • Paralyzing Palm: Consumes some action points to perform an unarmed strike with a chance to paralyze an enemy for 30 seconds.
  • Ranger Takedown: A special attack that takes an enemy to the ground, briefly incapacitating them.
  • Legion Assault: A powerful leaping palm strike.
  • Scribe Counter: Blocks an enemy melee or unarmed attack, greatly reducing damage, then immediately counterattacks with a quick strike.
  • Khan Trick: Casts dirt and dust into the eyes of an opponent, temporarily stunning them.
