The Fallout New Vegas boosted skills effects allow players to increase their skills without spending a lot of time leveling up. Boosted skills in the base game are capped at one hundred and twenty-five, but the DLCs will give you more skill points, so you can max out your skills faster.
The game also has several skill magazines that give players temporary perks. These magazines can be used for specific skills like crafting recipes, weaponry, and conversation. Each magazine provides a temporary boost to the skill it is associated with. The right combination of items can greatly increase your skill level.
Fallout New Vegas’s boosted skills effects allow players to build characters that suit their playstyle. Some players build their characters around their preferred SPECIALs, while others optimize their builds for a better overall performance. For example, Strength 6 can be used in order to fulfill the Weapon Handling requirement for most weapons (except impractical heavy weapons), and Perception 6 will give your character a useful range of compass detection.
A magazine that has longer-lasting buffs is another way to increase your skill effects. Magazines can contain buffs that give you double or even triple the duration of certain weapon types or double the healing effects from certain types of food. These are nice rewards for exploring the game world, but they can also make or break your game.
Another way to increase the duration of chem effects and consumable items is by using the Jury Rigging skill. This skill can double the healing effect from Nuka Cola and Sunset Sarsaparilla, but this skill is only useful to those with lower survival skills. However, this skill can only be used on characters with survival skills less than thirty, so you’ll want to use it wisely.
While there are plenty of Fallout 3 perks, few of them contribute directly to skill points. Most of them increase special stats, or yield from skillbooks. The Educated perk increases skill points in proportion to character level. It is important to remember that skill points gained relative to character level will depend on the DLCs installed on your games.
There are a few more perks to boost your skills in Fallout New Vegas. The Boosted Repair skill is a good example of a mod that helps players get the most out of their equipment. It improves the effectiveness of your armor and other equipment. For example, it makes armors and weapons easier to repair.
