V.A.T.S or Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System in Fallout 76 works differently compared to previous Fallout games. In Fallout 3, 4 and New Vegas, the Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System lets you slow down time to target the different body parts of your enemies. However in Fallout 76, V.A.T.S won't slow down time or pause for bloody cinematics. It simply highlights enemies, displays the body part you can currently aim at, and your chances of a successful hit, for an Action Point (AP) cost.

With perk Awareness, you can view a target's specific damage resistances in V.A.T.S
