The Nuclear Option from what I can find (Spoilers) will reward you with 1770 experience upon completion. So last night when I heard Idiot Savant go off, I didn't expect for it to be on the main reward. This was amusing for me as I was trying to get from 38 to 42 so that I could get 4 points to put into Charisma and get the Local Leader perk. Last mission took me from 38 to 43 with little to no effort (apart from a few crazy fights while running out of Stim's.
I've had a lot of fun with this perk. I've been told that a higher Intelligence outweighs the rewards form this perk, but if you don't want to waste points in Intelligence, having two points in this is well worth it in my opinion.
- Possible spoilers in the title is in case conversations take place around the mission involved.
