I’m terrible at computer hacking, so I don’t waist Perks on it, but I feel like I’m missing out on stuff.
Can’t you tell your companions to do it? Can any of them?
Nick Valentine can hack computer terminals. Cait loves to pick locks.
I think anyone can try but those two companions are pretty good at the skills they talk about.
As for hacking terminals, you could get better at it if you chose. It isn’t difficult. It’s like a math trick…you know how some kids just breeze through things that others struggle with? Sometimes it’s because they are just that smart but usually it’s because they happen to know a handry trick or two.
I’m guessing you also don’t like reading, so I’ll try to keep this short(er than usual).
How to hack a terminal every time
- Find the first word in the list. Click on it.
- Go to the second word on the list and spell out the first word as you hover over each letter.
- If it matches the criteria given, click on the second word.
- If not, go to the third word, etc.
The first click tells you how many letters are in the correct positions. Usually that’s between 0 and 3. It doesn’t matter which letter(s), it just lets you know whether you can rule out the next choice or not. Say you’re looking for a word that shares one of the same letters. The next word also happens to end with “ed”…that would make two shared letters and that cannot be your word. So you move on.
Out of a thousand tries, I’ve only run out of options once or twice and that’s always because I wasn’t paying attention. C-A-R-R-O-T…nope, can’t work; C-A-R…nope, can’t work; C…nope; C-A-R-R-O-T…ooh, that works.
It’s about that hard.
