Parameters of the Skills in Outer Worlds

Divided into 7 different sections, the Skills of Outer Worlds give your character a higher degree of definition, this will allow you to know your character better, ie know the way in which best performs, both in combat, strategically, as in the handling of weapons. 

You should know that when you put the first 50 points in each skill, these will increase all Skills of that category. This means that if the melee is divided into:

  • Single-handed melee weapons.
  • Two-handed melee weapons.

Also Outer Worlds gives you the option that for every 20 points that you put in the skill, you can use a special passive, this means that in the first 50 points that you put in one, you get your first two passive in that category.
