As of the Locked & Loaded update, players can customize multiple S.P.E.C.I.A.L. loadouts to use at separate times with their Vault Dweller during gameplay, allowing a larger variety of various perks and S.P.E.C.I.A.L. points to use in conversation with NPCs, combat, and more.
The machine works as the gatekeeper to the SPECIAL loadouts system. The machine utilizes the perk cards given to the player character during Reclamation Day, allowing management of perks. The machine has 10 slots marked "Perk" across a board, and a yellow drop box attached on the left. Only seven of the slots, one for each SPECIAL category, is occupied. Players can interact with punch card machines throughout Appalachia or build one in one's C.A.M.P.
- The first two loadout slots are free and enabled for all players.
- A total of 13 additional loadout slots can be purchased for 1 - 500500 per unlocked slot in the Atomic Shop.
