If additional information is what you crave, then this is a most helpful augmentation to your V.A.T.S. combat interface, as it allows you to see what a foe's resistances are and use weapons they are susceptible to.Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide description

Awareness is a perk in Fallout 4 and its add-on Nuka-World.


Rank one can be taken at level one, and requires the Sole Survivor to have at least three points in Perception. It shows an enemies' specific Damage Resistances when targeted in V.A.T.S. as well as its level.

Rank two is only available with the Nuka-World add-on. It has the same Perception requirement, but can only be taken upon reaching level 14. It grants five percent additional weapon damage as well as five percent increased hit chance while using V.A.T.S.

  • While the perk can in theory be taken with level one, it actually requires level two to take it, as there are no perk points available prior to reaching it.
  • While the perk reveals resistances for an enemy (in addition to a crossed-out symbol for immunities), it will not display any special characteristics. The prime example of this is that ghouls are shown as having 1000 radiation resistance, when in fact they have a special effect that allows them to restore HP upon receiving radiation damge, making the resistance moot.
