Intimidation is a perk that can be unlocked by the Sole Survivor in Fallout 4.


The first rank of Intimidation allows the Sole Survivor to pacify any person below their level by aiming their weapon at the person. Once they are pacified, the second rank allows them to order the person to attack for them, and the third rank allows them to give the person specific commands beyond attacking.
