Advanced technology from the Commonwealth has increased your reaction speed, giving you a higher chance to hit in V.A.T.S.

Wired Reflexes is a perk in Fallout 3. It cannot be selected on level-up but is acquired through fulfilling certain criteria for the quest The Replicated Man.

Description[edit | edit source]

Advanced technology from the Commonwealth is implanted into the player's central nervous system[1] and increases their reaction speed, giving a higher chance to hit in V.A.T.S.. This perk increases chance to hit by 10%. As with all perks that increase chance to hit in V.A.T.S., this bonus is multiplicative, not additive.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

To obtain this perk, side with Dr. Zimmer in The Replicated Man, and report A3-21. It's possible to get this perk while siding with A3-21; tell Dr. Zimmer who A3-21 is, and the player will be awarded the perk. Before he and his bodyguard leave the room to reset A3-21, immediately kill them both. If the player character first tells A3-21 they'll kill Dr. Zimmer for him before revealing his identity to Zimmer, he'll give them A3-21's plasma rifle.
