A guide that will show you what each Stat and Skill does, along with the math behind them.

Your Stats and You

Stats show your general combat effectiveness due to your Skills or other Buffs you currently have active.

Guide to Stats & Skills

Anything highlighted in GREEN is being boosted by an item or buff effect.

When selecting different stats the game will show you a short description, along with the math used to determine each one.


  • This is the only non-combat stat, it affects random encounters and some dialogue options.
  • It can be raised or lowered by dialogue options or certain choices and events.
  • It is a good idea to keep this high, as some random encounters can be very helpful.


  • This stat shows your overall damage multiplier due to buffs or item effects.
  • It does not show bonuses from your weapon skills.

The Skills that Pay the Bills

Your Skills are passive abilities that can be increased when leveling up to grant bonuses for many aspects of gameplay.

Guide to Stats & Skills

Skills can be increased up to 200

The amount of Skill Points gained per level is determined by what Perks you have.

When selected, each Skill will give a short description and show the math used to determine their effectiveness.

Each Skill will start at 20 by default.


  • This Skill shows how good you are at convincing people to help you out.
  • There is no math involved on this one, just a point requirement that depends on dialogue.
  • (Sometimes when talking to someone a skillcheck speech option will appear that allows you to either gain some free supplies or skip certain tasks if your Speech skill is high enough.)
  • Not a very high-priority skill, occasionally allows you to get some free stuff.


  • This Skill increases how much damage you do with Guns.
  • Each Point increases your damage dealt by 1%.
  • Very useful, max this Skill first to save on ammo and kill stuff quicker.

End of the Road
