Experience & Level-Up Guide
Welcome to our Fallout experience & level-up guide!

The guide gives you an experience table followed by the hit points, skill points & perks tables, and concludes by listing the other miscellaneous tabs on your character screen.

Experience in this game is gained at the same rate as in D&D 3rd Edition: i.e., begin at level 1, earn 1,000xp through level 1 to advance, 2,000xp through level 2, etc. The maximum level in Fallout is 21. Here's the xp table and the relevant titles to each rank:
