Fallout Tactics in-game description

Perk rate is a derived statistic. It affects how often the character is allowed to pick a perk. A character's perk rate depends on his race and on certain traits such as Skilled (which increases the rate) or Fear the Reaper (which decreases it). Some perks, like Divine Favor, may decrease the perk rate as well.

Fallout, Fallout 2Edit

In Fallout and Fallout 2, the perk rate is 3, which means that it is possible to pick a new perk every 3 levels. You are not able to save up perks to use at future perk acquiring levels. Any unselected perk will be lost forever at the next perk level if you do not select one before this time. E.g. level 3 > perk not chosen, level 6 > perk not chosen (level 3 perk point lost), level 9 > better criticals chosen (level 6 perk point lost).

Fallout 3Edit

In Fallout 3, the perk rate is always 1 - that is, you can pick a new perk every level.

Fallout: New VegasEdit

In Fallout: New Vegas, the perk rate is set at 2 - You can get a new perk every two levels.

Fallout TacticsEdit

In Fallout Tactics, the racial perk rate for humans is 3, which means that they can pick a new perk every 3 levels. The rate is 4 for ghouls, super mutants and deathclaws, and 2 for dogs. Robots cannot pick Perks at all, i.e. their perk rate is infinity. You are able to save up perks to use at a later time.

Fallout: Brotherhood of SteelEdit

In Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, "skills" work like perks in other Fallout games. The "perk" rate is 1.

LionheartEdit

In Lionheart (a non-Fallout game using the SPECIAL system), the first perk is taken at Level 2, not 3, but the subsequent perks are taken every 3 Levels.
