    Hey all,
    I'm running Restoration Project, and things have been going fairly well so far. YAAM is in play, and working okay. I was super psyched about finally getting the Sniper perk, but when I did - no changes. Barely any critical hits, same as always. I'm not sure what's going on. Also, my companions seem to be regularly doing more damage with the same gun (Gauss rifle with Cassidy vs me using Gauss Rifle) against, say, Enclave troops. I'm hitting for around 8 on average, while Cass is doing 16 on average per shot. What the heeellll?

    My specials are (with Enclave Armor) : 9, 7, 5, 4, 7, 8, 7.
    Got the Sniper and a single Bonus Ranged Damage perk. Any ideas?

    Certain enemies are more resistant to damage if they are wearing armor. You might want to equip weapons that can penetrate armor. As for criticals, having your luck maxed will make every shot a critical with sniper.
