With the Rooted perk, you can inflict and take more damage while standing still, and may even reflect some of that damage back to attackers.”— Fallout 4 loading screen hints
Effects[edit | edit source]
Sometimes holding the line is an effective strategy, and this three rank perk makes it even an even better one. With the first rank, you gain +25 Damage resistance, and melee and unarmed attacks deal 25% more damage while standing still; the second rank of the perk raises this resistance to damage to +50, and extra damage is boosted to an extra 50%. The third and final rank allows you to automatically disarm any enemy who uses a melee weapon against you.
