This Fallout 4 SPECIAL video makes the case for Perception

Perception has long been one of the most important stats to buff up in Fallout, because nobody likes missing a called shot on a charging super mutant's noggin. Judging from the second part of Bethesda's instructional SPECIAL videos, it looks like it will be just as key to your survival when Fallout 4 arrives on November 10.

Aside from popping heads in VATS, Perception is also key for successful Wasteland scavenging (read: burglary and pickpocketing), assessing threats, and handling explosives. Make sure you check out the Fallout 4 Strength video to see how far brute force can get you in the Commonwealth.
