Action Points (or APs) are the core of the combat system in the Fallout series. While in a combat, the player character can only perform a limited number of actions, depending on his Action Points amount. Healing, shooting, reloading, and picking up items are some examples of actions that will cost you APs. In FOnline: Forever, most of the fights are in real time, which means your Action Points will automatically regenerate over time, until they reach your maximum Action Points amount.
Note: Some skills require 5 Action Points to use.
Note: Opening containers require 4 Action Points.
Note: Using Super Stimpaks require 6 Action Points.
In Real-Time mode, your Action Points will regenerate if you stand still, exactly like the Fallout: Tactics combat mode. The higher your Maximum Action Points, the faster they will regenerate. In Turn-Based mode, your Action Points are fully regenerated each turn, so you don't have to save them.
Maximum action points
Your maximum Action Points are calculated with the following formula :
5 + (Agility/2)
It can also be increased with the Action Boy perk (+1 AP per rank of this perk) or by taking Jet or Nuka-Cola (Their effects, however, are only temporary). In Turn-Based mode, the Bonus Move perk is also effective, giving you two additional APs to move only. This perk does not work in Real-Time mode, since moving does not cost you APs.
Note: If you are addicted, and you have not taken your drugs, the amount of Action Points you have will be temporarily decreased by one AP for each drug addiction.
