The wastelands and the various settlements within Fallout 4 is full of chairs, sofas, benches, and various other items that allow you to sit on them. Does sitting actually have a purpose or is it just an alternate to sleeping but without the "Well Rested" bonuses?

What's the purpose of sitting down in Fallout 4?


According to the Fallout Wiki one must be sitting to wait in the game. In previous Bethesda games you could just wait by standing in a location unless involved in a few situations like combat or dialog. Since you might be in an area doing something that is time sensitive and have no way of finding a bed to rest, you just need to find a place to sit and you can wait. To wait, you have to sit and then bring up the wait menu. On PC, it is reached by hitting 'T'

    Furthermore, of you sit down the "wait" option will appear on screen, rompting the player for the correct button on console
