Smash heads with Fallout 4's Big Leagues Perk

Fallout 4 (opens in new tab) has a lot of love for huge guns, like mini-nuke launchers and customizable plasma rifles (opens in new tab), but sometimes you want to get up close and clobber the hell out of somebody. When that time comes, you'll be glad you invested in the Big Leagues Perk.

A second level Strength Perk (which means you need at least two ranks of the Strength SPECIAL (opens in new tab) stat to unlock it), Big Leagues is all about unleashing your inner sultan of swat. It's not just for baseball bats - the fifth rank makes you deal double damage with all melee weapons, and even cripple limbs or smash heads like rotting pumpkins - but getting a critical hit with a bat in VATS is just too perfect. Step up, swing away, and make sure you bring a clean Vault jumpsuit to change into afterwards.

You can always head down to the batting cages if the wait for November 10, Fallout 4's release date, becomes too unbearable.

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.
