There's no time to waste! Though this doesn’t give you any more Action Points, it significantly lessens the time you spend waiting for them to regenerate, either during combat or after some sprinting. This is a great perk to take early into your adventuring, so you have more bursts of energy and less lengthy periods of tiring out.— Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide

Action Boy or Action Girl, depending on the Sole Survivor's gender, is a perk in Fallout 4.

  • Unlike the perks in previous games, Action Boy/Girl changes how fast Action Points regenerate, rather than adding more points to spend.
  • This perk does stack with the effect provided by the Quantum X-01 power armor, though the difference in AP refresh rate in it may appear marginal. It is far more noticable in normal power armor, as the full AP refresh (especially on high-Agility characters) will take much longer.
