# Critical Chance

**Critical Chance** is the probability of scoring a Critical Hit on a target.

## Calculating Critical Chance

- Basic critical chance equals your Luck.
- Add 15% if you take Finesse
- Add 6% for More Critical
- Add 10% for Even More Criticals
- Add up to 60% for Aimed Attacks (depends on aimed body part and Luck)

It is possible to build a character whose critical chance would be 95% with an aimed attack. Such characters are usually supposed to be "cripplers".

## Related Perks and Traits

- More Critical +6%
- Even More Criticals +10%
- Silent Death Automatically critical if sneaked and attacking from behind
- Hit the Gaps removes 80% critical hit chance modifier of any armor that is worn by the person you are currently attacking
- Right between the Eyes removes 90% critical hit chance modifier of any helmet that is worn by the person you are currently attacking
- Bonehead -10 penalty on the attacker's critical hit roll whenever the head or eyes of a player who has the trait are targeted
- Finesse +15% to Critical Chance, but +30% to your target's DR

**Note:** The related perk Better Criticals only affects how a successful critical would hit on the target (gives you a better chance of crippling, knocking down, etc...), but it doesn't affect your critical chance.

"If for example I have 15 crit chance and enemy target is wearing an armor with -10 critical chance mod like combat armor. Does it means that I ll have 5 percent chance to crit on him ? Like the critical chance modifier just substract from your final critical chance ( after adding your perks, luck,aiming part, weapon bonus blabla)." -NarrowMinded
" "If yes, what is happening with a guy that have 6 critical chance and burst another guy in combat armor that have -10 critical modifier. Does it means that this time the guy bursting will NEVER be able to crit on him because his crit chance was reduced to 0 percent? So to be able to actually have a chance to crit on someone you would need to have higher critical chance than his -critical chance modifier?" -NarrowMinded " "Interestingly, everyone receives another "hidden" bonus chance to crit based on the results of their to-hit roll; a random number between 1 and 100 is subtracted from your to-hit value (your total hit chance after the formula on the wiki, clamped between 5 and 95). The difference between the random roll result and your to-hit is integer-divided by 10 then added to your critical chance. This means that a character with 1% chance to crit normally would in practice have anywhere between a 1% and 10% chance to cause a critical hit." -Mars Sultan on September 29, 2013, 10:08:16 PM |
