Coordination and the ability to move well. A high Agility is important for any active character.— Fallout In-game description

Agility is one of the seven primary statistics in the SPECIAL system.

Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics[edit | edit source]

Action point allocation is based on the AG stat. Therefore, a character that wishes to keep an enemy on its toes, or claws, needs to have a high Agility in order to have multiple combat moves. Additionally, it allows the character to dodge better. It is a critical stat for anyone interested in more mobile and visceral skills, such as unarmed and small guns. Other skills rely on it, but these have higher values in AG investment.

Ways to increase Agility[edit | edit source]

  • In Fallout 1, the Brotherhood of Steel in Lost Hills can perform an operation to permanently increase Agility by 1, assuming the player can afford it.
  • In Fallout 1 and Fallout 2, Agility can be raised by using psycho which gives a temporary +3, and by using Buffout which gives a temporary +2.
  • Agility can be raised in Fallout 2 by using Monument chunk which gives a temporary +3.
  • In Fallout 2, taking the Gain Agility perk also raises Agility by 1.
  • In Fallout 2, The Chosen One can get a permanent +1 Agility by first sleeping with Miss Kitty and immediately afterward sleeping with one of her prostitutes (restoration Project only, after completing the last main mission).

Ways to decrease Agility[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Contrary to Agility's description in-game, and what the Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide states, Agility does not affect run speed. This can easily be proven in-game with a stopwatch, measuring the time it takes to travel a given distance with a 1 Agility and a 10 Agility character (the same time).
  • If the player character's Agility stat is the most extreme (highest or lowest), Doc Mitchell will either say "Most patients don't get out of bed after being shot and then move like they was in perfect control. You're unusual, I'll say that." (for highest) or "Don't have all of your coordination back yet, it looks like. You should think about doing some rehab." (For lowest)

Fallout 4[edit | edit source]

Agility is a measure of your overall finesse and reflexes. It affects the number of Action Points in V.A.T.S. and your ability to sneak.— in-game description

Each point of Agility yields 10 additional action points:

Game settings for action points:

  • fAVDActionPointsBase = 60
  • fAVDActionPointsMult = 10

Each point adds 1% directly to the pickpocketing chance.

Fallout 76[edit | edit source]

Agility is a measure of your overall finesse and reflexes. It affects the number of Action Points (AP) in V.A.T.S. and your ability to sneak

Modifies: Action Points, ability to sneak

Agility is the stat that influences sneak and maximum Action Points (AP), which is consumed while using V.A.T.S, sprint, power attacks or the Dodgy perk. As with other Fallout 76 SPECIAL attributes, Agility has a maximum base stat of 15.

At an Agility of 1, the maximum AP available is 105. Each additional level of Agility increases the total amount of AP by 10. At an Agility of 15, the maximum AP available is 245.

Similarly, at an Agility of 1, the sneak rating bonus is 5. Each additional level of Agility increases this amount by 5. At an Agility of 15, the sneak rating bonus is 75.

Ways to increase Agility[edit | edit source]

Note that all stat boosts in Fallout 76 are temporary.

Fallout Shelter[edit | edit source]

Agility affects how efficient a dweller is while working in the diner and garden facilities. It can be increased on different dwellers by assigning them to the athletics room.

While on quests, Agility also increases how fast (how many times) a dweller attacks/ fires their weapon per round.

Fallout: The Board Game[edit | edit source]

Unlike other games, Agility is not treated as a variable ranging from 1 to 10, but instead as a token that can be obtained at the start or when leveling up. A player character with the Agility token gets free rerolls during certain tests, as well as during fights if equipped with an Agility-based weapon.

The wastelander player character always begins the game with Agility. Any player character wearing the singed duster gains one hit during an Agility test. However, a player character cannot gain any rerolls from Agility while wearing metal armor. During any Agility test, Calmex can be used to gain one free hit.
