Fallout 4 in true RPG fashion allows players to experiment with a bunch of builds. The Infiltrator build is arguably one of the strongest builds in the game making heavy use of the gun Deliverer which also happens to be one of the best weapons in Fallout 4.

You can get an extra attribute point by picking up the You’re S.P.E.C.I.A.L. book in your old house in Sanctuary Hills.

Survival Mode will have you dealing with buffed-up enemies with increased attack strength and damage resistance so you need to plan your stats accordingly. Since this build has a heavy focus on V.A.T.S., put more emphasis on Agility, Luck, and Perception as all of them combined should give you a lot of value when using V.A.T.S.

Now that you have allocated attribute points to each SPECIAL stat, the next step is to choose perks and level up accordingly. Here’s a breakdown of the perks you need to focus on throughout the game:
