On the off chance that you’re expecting Fallout 76 VATS to give you a breather in combat, we’re sorry to say that it works completely differently in this online apocalypse.

The way V.A.T.S. works in Fallout 76 is a little different to the last two Fallout titles. The automated targeting system no longer offers appendage targeting straight out of the case, and it also no longer slows down time. While the time slowdown is presently not available, players can at least upgrade their V.A.T.S. to target specific limbs.
In the event that you are fighting with multiple enemies while using V.A.T.S. you can toggle between them by pressing the d-pad right and left. You can also attack specific body parts while using V.A.T.S. in the event that you’ve get the Concentrate Fire perk card and prepared it. Focus shoot can finish by using the right thumbstick to push through body parts and this will give you greater accuracy and damage per shot. Depending on the size of the body part you are trying to target and your distance to the foe, your percentage chances of hitting it will vary.
