With the Intimidation perk, you can aim at people with your gun and attempt to pacify them. Higher ranks grant the ability to incite them to attack, or allow you to issue specific commands.”— Fallout 4 loading screen hints
Effects[edit | edit source]
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.
