Here are our Unlockables for The Outer Worlds on Playstation 4. The most trustworthy items get the most 'thumbs up' from our users and appear nearer the top!
As you level up, you’ll be able to distribute skill points to increase your abilities, but every two levels you’ll also get a Perk Point. Perks are split into three tiers and can provide you with passive abilities and other useful bonuses.
Tier 1 Perks
Tier 2 Perks
Tier 3 Perks
After meeting certain criteria, you will be given the option to accept a Flaw. Flaws are permanent negative effects added to your character in exchange for an extra Perk Point.
