With the Intense Training perk, you can put a single point into any of your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attributes.Fallout: New Vegas

Intense Training is a perk in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 2d20.


Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas

With the Intense Training perk, a single point can be put into any S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attribute. Each point will be fundamentally identical to a point that had been allotted during character creation, and so will allow the player character to gain more implants (Fallout: New Vegas) or perks.

Fallout 2d20

Increase any one S.P.E.C.I.A.L attribute by 1 rank. As usual, S.P.E.C.I.A.L attributes cannot be increased beyond 10 using this method with the exception of super mutant origin's 12 max in Strength and Endurance.

Each time this perk is taken, the level requirement increases by 2.


  • It is similar to the Gain perk from Fallout 2, except that the bonus-stat point can be spent wherever desired, and this perk is available at level 2 instead of level 12.
  • In Fallout 3, taking this perk at level 2 to increase Intelligence by 1, gives the player character 18 more skill points by max level (28 points with Broken Steel installed).
  • It has the most ranks of any perk in the games.
