In Fallout 4, Agility helps you become a slow-mo, gun-fighting backstabber

When you're staring down six gibbering ghouls with six shots in your revolver, you don't have much time to sit back and prioritize your targets. That is, unless you have a high Agility SPECIAL. The latest Fallout 4 (opens in new tab) instructional cartoon from Bethesda introduces the stat that will make sure you're always the fastest draw in the Commonwealth.

Pump up your Agility score and you'll also find enemies have a harder time hitting you, not to mention you'll get access to Perks that let you go all silent assassin on them with rapid-fire sneak attacks. If you haven't already, be sure to check out the Strength (opens in new tab), Perception (opens in new tab), Endurance (opens in new tab), Charisma (opens in new tab), and Intelligence (opens in new tab) videos to get a better feel for what will go into your Fallout 4 character ahead of November 10.

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.
