Here's how Intelligence will help you survive in Fallout 4

It takes a lot more than strong muscles to rebuild society in the nuclear post-apocalypse. The latest Fallout 4 SPECIAL video shows how Intelligence can elevate you above irradiated beasts and barbaric raiders alike; why worry about staking a claim on that picked over grocery store when you can hack your way into the secure pre-war facility next door?

Aside from computer wizardry, it also looks like Intelligence is tied into weapons crafting, navigation, first aid, chemistry, and the ever-potent Nerd Rage. Don't forget to check out the benefits of Strength, Perception, Endurance, and Charisma before you get to work planning out your Fallout 4 character.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
