Tired of wandering the wasteland in pitch blackness? Need to see some sunlight out there? In order to do this you’ll need to wait a few hours, unless you want to actually wait for the sun to come up in-game. Waiting has been an important element to the Fallout and Elder Scrolls series from Bethesda, but it’s a bit different this time around. Here’s a quick guide for how to wait in Fallout 4.
No longer can you just hit a button to bring up the Wait menu, instead you actually have to find something to sit or lie on. A bed is the best method, as sleeping changes the time like waiting, but also restores your HP and gives you the Well Rested perk. But what if one isn’t available when you need it?
Instead you can find a chair, couch, sofa, or anything else that you can typically sit on. Find whatever you can where you are and put your cursor on it. If the option comes up to Sit then you’re on the right track. Select the option and your character will sit down on the chair.
This is where waiting can be done, as a button press (shown on the bottom of the screen) will pop up a menu prompting you for how long you want to wait. Select the number of hours, making sure to note what time this will make it at the end, and hit the confirm button.
Easy enough, yet slightly different from what fans have had for the last few years. Give it a try and let us know in the comments if you have any other questions about Fallout 4.
