        You can get a full upgraded laser pistol in Reno though, and that can last you till SanFran since nothing outside of guys in metal armor resist lasers. Or with the right tools you can get a plasma pistol near Klamath once you get a electronic lockpick.

                5 is average. 4 is worse than that and you're trying to shoot a gun. You're going to be pretty shit at it, anon--definitely worse at it than the average dude you're fighting.

                It’s behind average. A melee character could work it that, not a ranged one

                It’s almost like the game came with a manual or something

                Okay, thank you for answering. So how should a character good with guns be built? What stats can you afford to sacrifice? INT? CHR? I'm guessing you don't need those. I imagine you don't need to be very strong since the point of guns is that it relies on the gun itself. Can you afford to remove points from LCK?

                >How much should it be? Where should be take the points from?
                it doesn't really matter what the other stats are from my experience you want 10 agility, and atleast 5 or 6 of your combat special in this case perception
                >How do you make an informed decision?
                the games supplementary material the manual

                I don't know, agility doesn't seem like a good name for that. Like it should be called turn priority, agility makes it sound like your guy does acrobatics or track and field.
                I think that's where a lot of RPGs get me, there's this insistence on trying to stay within some kind of 'lore' but then nobody who plays cares about what the actual terms mean. Like AGI isn't about being agile by how most people would use it, it's "how many actions can you take". Perception isn't about being perceptive, it's about accuracy. It's not just SPECIAL - I feel like a lot of the stat systems for RPGs do this. There's the names for things, and then there's the actual mathematic rules that are the thing you actually have to care about.

                I'm saying that this is the case for a lot of these sorts of games. The hidden rules about how you should build your character don't match up to how you would think you should, otherwise people wouldn't be able to frick it up so badly as that guy did. Because the game isn't about what it's purporting to be, it's about the numbers and mechanics underpinning it.

                >Perception isn't about being perceptive, it's about accuracy.
                Perception does effect you being perceptive as it also effect locations you spawn in random encounters, higher perception means you will spawn in a more advantageous position since you didn't get ambushed. It also effects your sequence which is basically your initiative so when you go in combat meaning you move sooner and can sometimes move twice in a row.

                I feel like if the specific mechanics like this are what is affected by the stats and those are important to your success, then that should be made obvious to the player from the start. Now admittedly I've not read the manual, but does it explain things that way?
                >Perception: affects

                like I said, it is anything but hidden. Fallout hides very little when it comes to stats; Luck is probably the one stat whose effect is actually difficult to gauge outside of critical hits. SPECIAL isn't perfect but purposefully obtuse it is not

                to be fair, skill books are pretty expensive; but I agree that being able to raise your skill using the same type of skill books over and over again is a moronic system. And half is kind of an exaggeration. In FO2 the only redundant or completely useless skills are really

                The usefulness of Throwing as a weapon skill is arguable but grenades are still pretty great. Also from what I remember you can really only increase Science, Repair, First aid and Outdoorsman through skill books in 1 and 2, and only up to a certain point.

                > usefulness of Throwing as a weapon skill is arguable
                It’s not totally useless, but why would you put points in throwing when you can put points in small guns, big guns or energy weapons ? It will always be secondary at best. Steal and sneak can be neat I guess, but they don’t offer enough to warrant the investment in skill points. As for gambling, you really don’t need more money
                > you can really only increase Science, Repair, First aid and Outdoorsman through skill books in 1 and 2, and only up to a certain point
                I mean 91% is enough for most of them. You can still «cheat» by making you dumb with drugs, and then rise them again.

                for Outdoorsman and First aid; definitely. I haven't done a FO2 playthrough in a while, but I think if you actually want to be a Science/Repair character you definitely need way above 91%. For Small Guns 91% is also not enough for obvious reasons. But it's true that 91% for the other four is good enough. Not enough to actively interact with the bigger Science and Repair checks, but more than enough to use computers, avoid random encounters, and other stuff.
                Mostly agree with your other points though. Gambling is more useful in 1 because you can get to Junktown fairly early, when you will actually need some money assuming you're not yet strong enough to take on the Khan base. Steal is really only for dedicated thief characters.

                You do, but that’s like endgame stuff. At this point, you can afford to put points in them because your combats skills should be strong enough. There is never really a point like you have to chose between science/repair and small guns in Fallout 2. In Fallout Nevada, you always need to use non-combat skills so you have to raise them with your combat skills.
                > For Small Guns 91% is also not enough for obvious reasons
                That’s true but by the time you reach Vault City, you should have Small Guns above 91% anyway (if you play a ranged character)
                > Gambling is more useful in 1 because you can get to Junktown fairly early
                Yeah but if you blast the raiders before Junktown, you won’t even be able to sell all the stuff you will get to Killian. Never had that much a problem to wipe them out early game

                The only real objectively bad ones are
                >low agility
                >low perception on a ranged build
                >high charisma in fallout 1 and high charisma in 2 if you aren't using companions
                Most other options can be mitigated or survivable if you're smart. There's a reason 1 luck and sub 3 intelligence builds are a thing.

                If that's the case then that's good. I just speak from a position of, not in this thread perse but in other games anything that's like stat-heavy, if I post my 'build' it gets torn apart for being moronic. And they're probably right, but so often it feels like games don't really make that sort of thing clear. And I think I'm just bad or lazy when it comes to looking at numbers, it's annoying. It's not really why I play videogames, I play videogames for sensations/simulation.

                Perception does effect you being perceptive as it also effect locations you spawn in random encounters, higher perception means you will spawn in a more advantageous position since you didn't get ambushed. It also effects your sequence which is basically your initiative so when you go in combat meaning you move sooner and can sometimes move twice in a row.

                You always need INT, since it effects how many skill points you get, how much EXP you get, and speech checks. CHR is fully useless unless you want companions and you can supplement that with drugs. STR and END can be put down to 4 if you're feeling brave enough early on due to power armor being a thing in the late game.

                And by the end of the game strength and endurance don't effect much unless your build depends on it. So it's a reasonable to put them at 4 or at least STR if you don't want the minor penalties that come with it. You also have a thing in the NCR which can boost your END by 2 for free, and Buffout is always a thing if it's actually needed. Dump stats in fallout are largely determined by what you can mitigate via other ways, and for that it's mostly STR, END, CHR since these can be mitigated by drugs and aren't fully needed for playthroughs that don't require them which is not the case for stats like AGL and INT.

                Okay, that's more information, but still obscured by fluff. Unless what things you taste and smell are important in the game then why bring that up? It just confuses things. It does at least explain what stats are important to what types of players, so really the main issue is that it's not more explained in the game proper.

                Once for a single session, but I didn't really get into it. Tabletop games have never really drawn me in or interested me like videogames do. I don't remember what I did for a character sheet though, I probably just copied a preset one (I think I played a dwarf lancer because I like Lance in Monster Hunter).

            As the other anons have said, the low Perception is probably the culprit, although 2 doesn't change anything about distance modifiers to hit from 1, so I'm not sure how it'd be that much worse in comparison to your 1 run. Since perception affects distance modifiers, you could just get up into the face of your oponents with your shotgun, I suppose.

His own fault if he managed to frick up with that foreknowledge.

    This could apply to fallout 1 or 2 or more generally to CRPGs: I don't really get what is so fun about building a character on a stats screen. I don't know what part of my brain is missing or defective but unless it's going to lead to something I'll be personally doing (like creating a character in something like New Vegas), the act of assigning number values to stats and skills isn't really fun. But I'm led to believe this is an important, even good part of these games.

                Fallout 2 doesn't do the other two, yes, but the main quest and many side quests are definitely pretty moronic especially if you compare it to the first game. Comedy's fine but I think stuff like Rat God, kungfu tournament that decides who rule the town, talking Deathclaws being some sort of a benevolent race, and that infamous Republican dialogue are taking it too far. I actually like many of the references though. Like Tragic and the holy hand grenade random encounter. I like a lot of the jokes also

                Still disagree that the game is worse than one tho. No location in Fallout 1 was as good as New Reno or Vault City. The Hub is barely at the level of place like Redding or The Den

                2 is by no means a bad game; it's simply that I think having a moronic main quest really brings down the quality of a game regardless of how good the side contents are. It would have been great if all the neat maneuvering between the NCR, Reno, Vault City and Redding actually mean something for the main quest, but as they are they're simply an expansive side content. A really great and engaging one, but side content nonetheless. I don't disagree that locations in Fallout are nowhere near as expansive as the ones in 2, though I prefer the way sidequests are handled in 1.

                I mean Fallout 2 is pretty much 80 to 90% side content, it’s not comparable to Fallout 1 which is a more cohesive story with a lot less side things to do. It’s a matter of preference rather than what is better to me. I partly agree with you, that’s why I think Fallout New Vegas is the best, the majority of the side content is tied to the greater conflict of the main quest, making it a more cohesive experience. It has a lot of stuff like Fallout 2 but is more cohesive like Fallout 1
                > I don't disagree that locations in Fallout are nowhere near as expansive as the ones in 2, though I prefer the way sidequests are handled in 1.
                I would like to know why, because having played Fallout 1 last month, the majority of it is simplistic and not engaging, stuff like kill the deathclaw mothers, repair the water pump, make a deal with the Gun Runners. Fallout 2 has bad side content sure, but things like the the Vault City/Bishop/Westin quests alone trumps over all of what Fallout 1 offers. The good thing with Fallout 1 is that none of the side content is truly bad like in 2

      You see how others from your village look or other tribals. I think I'd be able to tell without needing to hear them speak.

    you played the game six times and you never found the underground ladder in one of the buildings? this isn't some obscure encounter he's in the town if you looked hard enough. seems like people like you just didn't explore the game world.

        Jinxed is pretty great for unarmed since everyone with guns is going to be having their weapons explode while you'll just occasionally lose a turn.

          No problem anon, good luck with the unarmed run, enjoy the surprising amount of side content for it. Try out Nevada and Sonora next, the dev for those also puts a lot of unarmed content, even the ability to build a power fist that sets people on fire out of a toaster in Nevada.

            It's not. You see a pop culture reference once every like 2 hours of gameplay and they're just small, meaningless interactions or Easter eggs you have to seek out or come upon by random chance.

      The ideological difference between Republicans and Democrats is basically nothing, they're both center right parties who mostly vote in line with each other besides key pandering issues. If you think Democrats weren't involved in Congress trying to push for everything the Republicans were, it's because you don't actually look at congressional voting records.
