“Agility affects your Small Guns and Sneak skills, and the number of Action Points available for V.A.T.S.”
Small Guns and Sneak are both magnificent skills, and this build will live and die by V.A.T.S. in this game, so more Action Points are always welcome. Speaking of Action Points, you get a measly two points for each point in Agility plus a base of… 65? Huh. Whatever, weapons just aren’t accurate at a range, and ammo is a commodity, so V.A.T.S. is good times. Besides, you are almost invulnerable while in V.A.T.S., so it’s something worth abusing. Beginning the game with seven points of Agility will ensure we can get all the useful perks that require Agility.
