[SPOILERS] Interesting combat options I can't find anything about?

I tried posting this over on the /r/NeoScavenger, but it's pretty slow over there so I figured I'd try here. I haven't been able to find anything at all online about these options, and they're pretty OP honestly, so don't click below if you don't want in on that.

In my current run, I've been getting some combat options that I've never seen in any previous runs, nor have I been able to find anything about these options on the internet as far as where they came from. I've seen four so far; Intimidate, Exploit Weakness, Lethal Trap, and Vanish from Sight. I've gathered that Merga Wraith is almost impossible to kill now; with Exploit Weakness, I wrecked him. I'm wearing the 3 Dog Moon shirt, could that have something to do with it?
Anyone have any insight on this? I'm very curious.

You should check your skills, you may be surprised to find something new added there. ;)

You obtained a "legendary" skill, congrats. :) I don't know how much I should spoil for you, but basically, you succesfully got through some encounters right? Maybe you did that in an impressive way? And lots of people watched you doing it? So maybe you're now somewhat of a legend in a specific area?

The way this works tells you a lot about the world of NEO Scavenger. It is a hint of how the world influences you and how you influence the world. Specifically, --Heavy spoiler, don't click!--

The universal law behind much of the weird stuff happening in this universe is: Perception affects reality. So in this specific case, if enough people see/believe that Philip can escape a situation in a sneaky way, if say, enough people believe he is legendary in how elusive he is, than he actually starts becoming elusive. This law affects the whole NEO world btw, and is the explanation behind a lot of the supernatural occurences you may be encountering.

Just fyi, it's possible that the way this specific mechanic is implemented right now may be slightly buggy - it's possible that you achieved this easier than you should. But hey, you got it now, so enjoy. :)

IS anything that you said even true?If so how do you achieve the people witnessing and starting to belive our dear Phillip being legendary...Honestly it all sounds like bull to me,no offense

I got this the other day and checked the wiki and between that and knowing what I'd done during the game, yes it is true. Major spoilers below:

You get them by volunteering as "Stock" at Zom Zoms and waiting until your number gets called, then using your skills to beat the robots. I don't know if it's a percentage chance or if it just happens automatically, but I know for sure I had "Unstoppable" after fighting them a couple of times using Mechanic and Hacking. I imagine "Elusive" comes from doing the same thing but using the Hiding skill. Maybe there are more as well? I'm not sure which skills are applicable to the fights in Zom Zoms besides those three.

Yep, there's other ways too. Like I said though, keep in mind we're suspecting they may be a bit easier to obtain than intended atm, so things may change a bit after Dan is back. It's just a suspicion, but still.

I may of course be lying. XD
