Skills are learned abilities of your character. The skill level shows how good your character is at that skill. Skill levels can be increased by allocating skill points earned from gaining levels. Skills can also be improved by reading specific books or completing quests within the games.

In Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, "skills" work like perks in other Fallout games. They are not listed here for this reason.
