I'm really confused. Perhaps the FO series vets can enlighten me regarding this:
When exactly should the prompt to "execute critical" pop up on the screen? When you're near death, for example? Is it tied to a specific character build feature? While VATS is active, do I need to press yet another key to activate "execute critical"?
I use VATS enough to have my crit meter full, but have yet to have the prompt pop up on any of my firefights. YouTube videos so far don't show how a player gets the prompt to show, only that it shows up, and they use it.
"The NUKE, are you crazy?" "Oh relax, it's got a very small yield. Just enough ..."
