Isn't Center of Mass VATS only? I haven't played for a few days and really never paid much attention when I was playing.

Still... my last character I took Center of Mass and ended up sniping most everything out of VATS...

he's talking about the 2 perks, sniper and center of mass, i prefer sniper, but thats just because thats what i always got in FO3, just pick one or the other, but both together wont benifit you any more

centre of mass is V.A.T.S only, and it's not the same as the sniper perk.

the sniper perk increases your chances of hitting the head in V.A.T.S by 25%

centre of mass increases the DMG done to the torso, but does not affect your chances of hitting
it at all.

so it's not like picking both of tem is a total waste, just near total.

both are V.A.T.S only.

hope this helps.

I suppose that depends on how much extra damage a headshot does.

in FO3, it was 1.5-2X DMG, unless it was a robot.
headshots on robots made no difference whatsoever, regardless of the model.

not sure if they kept all the the same for NV though.
