Sadly you will get just if you have maxed out your skills at leveling. there was something out there before for FO3 I forget what it was tho

Fallout 3 had the same sort of problem with SPECIAL, if you get stuck then simply edit your skill stats with the console, that should do it but I'm not too sure... I suppose the best way is to use the console and always be sure you're skills aren't maxed.
They might make a patch for that problem sooner or later... or a modder will. whichever comes first I suppose.
Its not for the Armour only reapers weapon.
