Aptitude 1_The Outer Worlds

This is a list of Aptitudes available in the game The Outer Worlds. Learn what Aptitudes are, the effect of each Aptitude, and how to change Aptitudes!

What are Aptitudes?

At the beginning of the game, when creating your character, you will be prompted to place points in Attributes, as well as to select an Aptitude for your character. These Aptitudes give a bit of personality to your character, indicating what their career was before moving to the Halcyon Colony.

Compared to Attributes, Aptitudes have a low effect on your character's final makeup – that said, because Aptitudes cannot be changed during gameplay, be sure to choose one which works well with your intended build.

How to Change Aptitudes

As with Attributes, after creating your character, you cannot change their selected Aptitude at any point in the game.

On the other hand, point allotment to Perks and Skills can be changed at any time after you've obtained the Unreliable by accessing the Vocational Competence Respecification Machine located on the ship.
