(This question is regarding survival mode.)
As we know most of the outfits we find are multi attribute outfits, e.g. the legendary Minuteman Uniform that has S+2, P+2, I+2, A+2.
I have always considered them, no matter if normal, rare or legendary, to be pretty garbage only good for recycling to get junk. Most of the time you want one attribute to be as high as possible for e.g. production rooms, workshops or E for leveling. As far as I know for finding items on expeditions P is most important, so I would still prefer a P+5 Sturdy Vault Suit or a legendary P+7 if I have it.
The only scenario I can think of is for finding junk where survival is the only concern and the total amount of SPECIAL increases the survivability against during events and their SPECIAL attribute checks. But I am not sure if this is how it works.
So is there any reason to keep and use multi attribute outfits or should I throw them in the grinder as soon as I get them?
