This guide goes over all SPECIAL statistics, Skills, Perks and Traits in Fallout
New Vegas, and can be used as an appendix while playing the game. The lists are
kept print-friendly and are a good reference source. That's pretty much it.
Better yet, this is spoiler free stuff!

S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stands for Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma,

the effects that the SPECIAL stats have on your character and summarizes this.

There are 13 skills in New Vegas, and it's nearly the same set as in Fallout 3.
The differences are: 1. Small Guns has been renamed to Guns. 2. Big Guns is no
longer a skill in New Vegas. 3. The Survival Skill is new.
This section deals with all skills. These are derived from one of your SPECIAL
stats, and are further increased by spending skill points after levelling up,
or by reading skill books or skill magazines.
Skill Books permanently increase a skill with 3 points. If you have the
Comprehension Perk, Skill Books grant one additional point per book, for a
total of 4 points.
__________________
Skill Magazines temporarily increase a |INT:|SKILL POINTS:|
skill by 10 points. If you have the |=-=-|=-=-=-=-=-=-=|
Comprehension Perk, they temporarily | 1 | 10.5 |
increase the skill by 20 points. | 2 | 11 |
| 3 | 11.5 |
Intelligence is the SPECIAL stat that | 4 | 12 |
influences how many skill points you get | 5 | 12.5 |
for each level up. Starting at 10.5 skill | 6 | 13 |
points at 1 INT, this can become 15 points | 7 | 13.5 |
at level 10. This has been dumbed down | 8 | 14 |
from 20 in Fallout 3. It's a good idea | 9 | 14.5 |
to start out with a high INT stat. | 10 | 15 |
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
An interesting shift from Fallout 3 to New Vegas is that skills such as Barter
and Speech have become a lot more useful. Dialogue options are no longer
chance-dependent, but require a fixed amount of skill points. You can now
expect to see dialogue options that require 50 speech - bottom line. If you
don't have enough, you can't get the option to work, it's that simple. There
are various options for Barter as well. Other skills may also have dialogue
options, such as Medicine, Sneak, Repair or Science, although these are less
common than Speech and Barter dialogue options.

Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*****] / [**...]
Prerequisite: Male/Female gender
Description: In combat, you do +10% damage against opponents of the same sex.
You sometimes get access to unique dialogue options when dealing
with the same sex. While Confirmed Bachelor is supremely useful,

Level: 2
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: Sneak: 30, Perception: 6
Description: Your eyes adapt quickly to low-light conditions indoors and when
darkness falls across the post-nuclear wastelend. Well that's
just great, but it's better to turn up your TV's brightness a
little (or better yet, check the in-game options) than to waste
a perk spot.
HEAVE, HO!
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 2
Ranks: 1

Prerequisite: Explosives: 30, Strength: 5
Description: All thrown weapons fly farther and faster for you. Nothing more,

Ever been scared of Mole Rats?

ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 2
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Guns: 30, Agility: 5
Description: Makes all your weapon reloads 25% faster than normal. This can
make a little difference, but it's better to always keep your gun
reloaded anyway. Reloading in the heat of battle can be annoying,
but there are many other great perks to be chosen.
RETENTION
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 2
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Intelligence: 5
Description: The bonuses granted by skill magazines last three times as long.

ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 2
Ranks: 3
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: Intelligence: 4
Description: You gain +10% extra experience points whenever EXP is given.

waste of a perk spot. Why hurry? It's only 10%.
________________________________________________________________________________
CANNIBAL
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 4
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: With the Cannibal perk you can eat corpses when in sneak bodies,
allowing you to regain hit points with this action. Everytime
you feed, you lose Karma and if the act is witnessed, well, you
get attacked. This isn't one of the best perks..
COMPREHENSION
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 4
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*****]
Prerequisite: Intelligence: 4
Description: You get double the temporary bonus from reading skill magazines
(+20 points instead of +10), and one extra permanent point from

Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*****]
Prerequisite: Intelligence: 4
Description: You get two more skill points every time you level up. Take this

Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]

Ranks: 1

Prerequisite: Survival: 70
Description: The higher your radiation sickness stage, the more health you
recover. Preferably, you don't even want to have radiation

Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Guns: 45 OR Energy Weapons: 45
Description: Reduces accuracy penalties when running and shooting with one-
handed weapons (guns and energy weapons).

ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 4
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Survival: 45
Description: While wearing light armor or no armor, you run 10% faster. Cute,
but hardly essential.
________________________________________________________________________________
BLOODY MESS
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 6
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: Enemies will often explode into a red, gut-ridden paste, and you
do +5% extra damage with ALL weapons. The gore is cute, but the
additional damage - even though it's only 5% - is very welcome.
DEMOLITION EXPERT
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 6
Ranks: 3
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: Explosives: 50
Description: All explosive weapons (including mines, grenades, missile launcher

like to specialise in explosives.

Level: 6
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Charisma: 6
Description: When you drop below 50% health, your companions gain much greater

Level: 6
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Luck: 5
Description: You find more bottle caps in containers than you normally would.
Meh.. Compared to other perks this one just doesn't compare,
especially because you only receive around +20% extra.

ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 6
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: Your accuracy in V.A.T.S. is improved when using one-handed guns
like a Pistol. Handy, but you could always stand a little closer
to your target. Or, you know, use a Sniper Rifle.
HAND LOADER

Level: 6
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: Repair: 70
Description: You know your way around reloading benches and don't let good
brass and hulls go to waste. When you use guns you're more likely
to recover cases and hulls. You also know all hand load recipes
at all reloading benches. A very decent perk to say the least.
LEAD BELLY
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 6
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: Survival: 40, Endurance: 5
Description: You take -50% radiation when consuming food and drinks. What can
I say? RadAway!

Level: 6
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: Guns: 45

Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: Sneak: 70
Description: Sneak Attack Criticals with Pistols, Revolvers and Submachine Guns

quite a big bonus and you should definitely consider this perk.
TOUGHNESS
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 6
Ranks: 2
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: Endurance: 5
Description: Adds +3 to Damage Treshold. This is s decent boost to your DT,
and you can take two ranks in it.
VIGILANT RECYCLER
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 6
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: Science: 70

ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 8
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: Your accuracy is improved in V.A.T.S. with two-handed weapons
(such as rifles). Could be useful for those who like to play
around with Sniper Rifles.

Level: 8
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: Guns: 45, Melee Weapons: 45
Description: You do +25% damage with revolvers, lever-action firearms,
dynamite, knives and hatchets. Not bad.
LIVING ANATOMY
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 8
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: Medicine: 70
Description: Allows you to see the health and Damage Treshold of any target.
You also do +5% damage against humans and non-feral ghouls. This
is quite cool to have, and the damage bonus is nice too, but at
this point there's many competition..
PACK RAT

Level: 8
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: Hardcore: [*****] / Non-hardcore [.....]
Prerequisite: Barter: 70, Intelligence: 5
Description: Items with a weight of 2 or less only weigh half as much. You'll
definitely want to take this perk if you're playing on Hardcore.
Otherwise, don't bother.
QUICK DRAW
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 8
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: Agility: 5
Description: You equip and holster weapons 50% faster. The holstering part
is completely useless and ... so is the equipping part to a great
extent. Worthless.
RAD RESISTANCE
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 8
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Survival: 40, Endurance: 5
Description: Rad resist +25%. Nothing more, nothing less.
SCROUNGER
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 8

perk competition is getting tighter.
STONEWALL
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 8
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Strength: 6, Endurance: 6
Description: +5 Damage Treshold against melee weaons and unarmed attack.
You can also no longer be knocked down in combat.
STRONG BACK
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 8

Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Melee Weapons: 45, Strength: 6
Description: All melee weapons (except thrown ones) and unarmed attacks have a

Level: 8
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [?????]
Prerequisite: Speech: 70
Description: In some conversations, you gain the ability to initiate combat
while terrifying a mob of opponents, sending them fleeing away
for safety. I don't know what the **** that means, but when I
find out, this vague description will hit the garbage bin.
________________________________________________________________________________
ANIMAL FRIEND
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 10
Ranks: 2
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Survival: 45, Charisma: 6
Description: Rank 1: Animals don't attack you. Rank 2: Animals aid you in
combat, but never against other animals. The first rank is
arguably useless, and it's too big a price to pay TWO perk spots
just to get the effects from rank 2. Furthermore, animals usually
come in packs and won't attack each other.
FINESSE
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 10
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: You have a higher chance to score critical hits, equivalent to
5 extra points of Luck. Well, that's not too bad, actually.
HERE AND NOW
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 10
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: Instantly grants you a level. Absolutely worthless, considering
there's a limited amount of levels and you *will* get there
anyway, but to waste a perk spot with this would be ridiculous.
MATH WRATH
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 10
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: Science: 70
Description: Reduces all Action Points (AP) costs by 10%. Quite nice,
especially in combination of other AP boosting perks! You can
make a realy V.A.T.S. killer character eventually.
MISS FORTUNE
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 10
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: Luck: 6
Description: Just when your enemies think they have the upper hand, Miss
Fortune appears to turn their world upside down. Appearing only
in V.A.T.S., she has the ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of
victory.
MISTER SANDMAN
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 10
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: Sneak: 60
Description: When in sneak mode you can silently kill any sleeping human or
ghoul, gaining experience too. But.. if they're sleeping, why
not just grab a Silenced Pistol or powerful melee weapon? This
perk is worthless compared to all others you can choose.
MYSTERIOUS STRANGER
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 10
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Luck: 6
Description: The Mysterious Stranger will randomly appear if the opponent is
still alive with 150 HP or less, with a chance of 10%, finishing
it off. Probably interferes with Grim Reaper's Sprint (although
dumbed down still preferable), so the Mysterious Stranger is not
too useful.
NERD RAGE!
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 10
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Science: 50, Intelligence: 5
Description: When health is at 20% or below (like, the point where any sane
person starts healing - I mean, c'mon, there's a *reason* your
health dropped that low, and that reason is likely to be four
sentry bots or a pack of ferocious deathclaws), only THEN will
your Strength get raised to 10, and do you gain +15 Damage
Treshold. Extremely conditional usage.
NIGHT PERSON
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 10
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: When the sun is down this perk grants +2 INT and PER (max = 10).
This works both outside and inside. Did I mention it's worthless?
PLASMA SPAZ
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 10
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Energy Weapons: 70
Description: Action Point costs for Plasma Weapons (including Plasma Grenades)
are reduced by 10%. Since Math Wrath reduces *ALL* AP costs by
10%, you should always take that one first. Regardless, this
could still be a decent choice if you really want to make a
killer character in V.A.T.S., equipped with a Plasma Rifle
(because let's face it, that'd be the sole reason to take this
perk, because who cares about Plasma Grenades Action Point costs?)
I'm not going to make a joke about the name Plasma Spaz, because
I'm not *that* dirty.
________________________________________________________________________________
FAST METABOLISM
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: +20% Stimpak effectiveness. Quite useful, but you can also be
more careful or hold more Stimpaks close to your heart..
GHASTLY SCAVENGER

Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: Cannibal Perk
Description: You can now also devour Super Mutants and Feral Ghouls. Once
again a worthless perk.
HIT THE DECK
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: Explosives: 70
Description: Damage Treshold +50% against *ALL* explosions. Can be useful!
LIFE GIVER
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: Endurance: 6
Description: Grants +30 Health Points. Unique and useful.
LONG HAUL
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Barter: 70, Endurance: 6
Description: Being overcumbered no longer prevents you from Fast Travelling.
Brings mixed feelings. Sounds great, right? Grab everything you
want (at least on the Mojave Wasteland), then Fast Travel to a
place where you can sell it all and dump it. But this still
requires an *entire* perk spot and the competition is big. Can't
you just dump your companion full with items anyway?
PIERCING STRIKE
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: Unarmed: 70
Description: When strikeing unarmed or melee weapons (including thrown ones),
this perk negates 15 Damage Treshold points. Very useful for
Unarmed character builds, arguably even essential. It can also
have its uses for regular characters, as this greatly improves
melee combat in general.
PYROMANIAC
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Explosives: 60
Description: +50% damage with fire-based weapons like Flamer and Shishkebab.
Useful, sure, but essential? Maybe for melee characters.
ROBOTICS EXPERT
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: Science: 50
Description: +25% damage to all robots. Sneaking up to a robot undetected
gives you the option to permanently shut them down. Good stuff!
SILENT RUNNING
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Sneak: 50, Agility: 6
Description: You run just as silently as crouched. But in all seriousness,
learn to sneak properly by staying undetected and save a perk
spot for something more useful.
SNIPER
ÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Perception: 6, Agility: 6
Description: The chance to hit an opponent's head is significantly increased.
Probably by 25%. Decent, not more than that.
SPLASH DAMAGE
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Explosives: 70
Description: +25% area effect for all explosions you cause. If you're a pyro,
this is for you! Otherwise, well, it's decent.
UNSTOPPABLE FORCE
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 12
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Melee Weapons: 90, Strength: 7
Description: You do a large amount of additional damage through enemy blocks
with all Unarmed and Melee attacks. Sounds great, but think about
what it says. It increase your damage when an enemy is blocking
only. It might be semi-handy for Unarmed characters, but even
then you might want to pick an other precious perk.
________________________________________________________________________________
ADAMANTIUM SKELETON
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 14
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: Your limbs only receive 50% of the damage they normally would.
Sounds amazing, but this does nothing with regards to the regular
damage taken. And how often are your limbs crippled in combat?
Well.., yeah, *sometimes*, but not *that* often. This perk has
limited use.
CENTER OF MASS
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 14
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: Guns: 70
Description: +15% damage in V.A.T.S. when targetting the torso. Certainly
a notable perk, especially for V.A.T.S. lovers.
CHEMIST
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 14
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Medicine: 60
Description: Chems last twice as long. Nice, but can't you just take a second
one when it wears off? Sure, sure, you might get addicted, but
that chance isn't too high and you can always cure that "Ave"!
JURY RIGGING
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 14
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: Repair: 90
Description: You possess the amazing ability to repair any item using a roughly
similar item. Fix a Trail Carbine with a Hunting Rifle, a Plasma
Defende with a Laser Pistol, or even Power Armor with Metal Armor.
How does it work? Nobody knows... except you. This is actually
a unique and quite handy perk, allowing you to fix a wider
arsenal of weapons and equipment.
LIGHT STEP
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 14
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: Perception: 6, Agility: 6
Description: You never set off enemy mines or floor-based traps. Who cares?
Just be more careful and save often, or disarm the things.
PURIFIER
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 14
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: Unarmed Builds: [****.] / All-Round: [**...]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: +50% damage with Unarmed and Melee Weapons against Centaurs,
Nightstalkers, Spore Plants, Spore Carriers, Deathclaws, Super
Mutants and Feral Ghouls. Only useful for unarmed character
builds.
________________________________________________________________________________
ACTION BOY
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 16
Ranks: 2
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: Agility: 6
Description: You gain +15 AP. Nice!
BETTER CRITICALS
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 16
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: Perception: 6, Luck: 6
Description: +50% damage bonus for all critical hits you deliver. Very nice
indeed. Unfortunately it requires relatively high PER and LCK
stats, so you might need to skip it with certain character builds.
CHEM RESISTANT
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 16
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Medicine: 60
Description: 50% less chance to develop an addiction to chems. Then again, if
you're careful you'll never need to build up an addiction at all.
MELTDOWN
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 16
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: Energy Weapons: 90
Description: Enemies killed by Energy Weapons give off a corona of harmful
energy. This can cause a chain reaction. More a fun perk than
actually helpful - it won't happen all that often to have enemies
grouped together tightly enough for this to cause a lot of damage.
TAG!
ÅÅÅÅ
Level: 16
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: Raises one skill with +15 points. Would've been "cute" at level
10, but at level 16, this is simply not worth the effort. There
are better ways to raise your skills.
WEAPON HANDLING
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 16
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Strength lower than 10.
Description: Weapon strength requirements are now 2 points lower than normal.
Again, this has limited usefulness. It'd be better to select
Intense Training - besides, you wouldn't want to have low strength
in any character build.
________________________________________________________________________________
COMPUTER WHIZ
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 18
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: Science: 70, Intelligence: 7
Description: If you are locked out of a computer, you get a second attempt.
They're back, the two useful hacking and lockpicking perks. The
solution is simple: Save before hacking, and don't force locks.
CONCENTRATED FIRE
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 18
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [***..]
Prerequisite: Energy Weapons: 60, Guns: 60
Description: Your accuracy to hit any body part in V.A.T.S. increases slightly
with each subsequent hit on that body part. All in all this
results in a decent increase of accuracy.
INFILTRATOR
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 18
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: Lockpick: 70, Perception: 7
Description: If you break a lock you get a second chance. This is the worthless
twin of Computer Whiz, and no one should ever bother with it on
a level as high as 18. Even at level 2 it would be bad!
PARALYZING PALM
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 18
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: Unarmed Builds: [*****] / All-Round Builds: [*....]
Prerequisite: Unarmed: 70
Description: You will sometimes perform a special V.A.T.S. palm strike that
paralyzes your opponent for 30 seconds. You must be completely
Unarmed for this to sometimes happen. A good perk for Unarmed
builds, otherwise it's kind of got a limited use.
________________________________________________________________________________
EXPLORER
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 20
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [**...]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: All locations are revealed on the Mojave Wasteland. It's a quick
practical solution, but it's nothing you can't do yourself. Two
stars for practical uses, but otherwise zero for completionists.
It can be very annoying to not know which locations you haven't
explored yet, though, so keep that in mind.
GRIM REAPER'S SPRINT
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 20
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*****]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: If you kill a target in V.A.T.S., twenty Action Points (AP) are
restored upon exiting V.A.T.S. mode. Although heavily dumbed down
from Fallout 3 (where it restored all AP), this is still a great
perk to take.
NINJA
ÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 20
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: Unarmed Builds: [*****] / All-Round Builds: [***..]
Prerequisite: Melee Weapons: 80, Sneak: 80
Description: When attacking with Melee Weapons or Unarmed you gain a +15%
critical chance on every strike. Sneak Attack Criticals do 25%
more damage than normal. A must for all Unarmed builds, and even
decent for All-Round Builds.
SOLAR POWERED
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 20
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: Endurance: 7
Description: When walking in direct sunlight: +2 Strength and slow health
regeneration. It's like getting 'Night Person' at level 20, and
yes, it's worthless.
________________________________________________________________________________
LASER COMMANDER
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 22
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: Energy Weapons: 90
Description: +15% damage and +10% chance to get critical hits with all
Laser Weapons. Well, that *is* quite useful!
NUKA CHEMIST
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 22
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [?????]
Prerequisite: Science: 90
Description: You can now create a special kind of Nuka-Cola at workbenches.
SPRAY AND PRAY
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 22
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [*....]
Prerequisite: ---
Description: Your attacks do much less damage to your companions. (Oh, right,
I'm level 22, so we must be so dumb to actually start randomly
"spraying" bullets at my companions when firing at enemies). The
only useful scenario would be when explosions are involved.
________________________________________________________________________________
SLAYER
ÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 24
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: Unarmed Builds: [*****] / All-Round Builds: [**...]
Prerequisite: Unarmed: 90, Agility: 7
Description: Speed of all Unarmed and Melee Weapon attacks increased by +30%.
Again, this really shows how much the developers wanted people to
"like" Unarmed builds. It's a must for Unarmed builds, but not
more than decent for all-round builds.
________________________________________________________________________________
NERVES OF STEEL
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 26
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [****.]
Prerequisite: Agility: 7
Description: Action Points recover much more quickly than normal. Yet another
crown for V.A.T.S. lovers.
________________________________________________________________________________
RAD ABSORPTION
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Level: 28
Ranks: 1
Usefulness: [.....]
Prerequisite: Endurance: 7
Description: Your radiation level slowly decreases on it's own over time. It
removes -20 RAD every 20 seconds. The real question is, who
really cares? I say, RadAway!

BETTER HEALING
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Companion: Arcade Gannon
Usefulness: [***..]
Description: You regain more health from all consumable sources. Quite handy!
ENHANCED SENSORS
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Companion: ED-E
Usefulness: [*....]
Description: You can detect enemies from very long distances, and stealthed
enemies can also be detected. Nifty, but not very useful.
REGULAR MAINTENANCE
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Companion: Raul
Usefulness: [***..]
Description: Your weapons and equipment condition decays 50% slower. That
is actually decently useful.
SCRIBE ASSISTANT
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Companion: Veronica
Usefulness: [*....]
Description: You are allowed to craft workbench items through dialogue options
with Veronica. Sounds awesome, but you might as well be patient
and find a Workbench.
SEARCH AND MARK
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Companion: Rex
Usefulness: [.....]
Description: Chems, firearms and ammo in your close surroundings are all
highlighted when you zoom in with the camera. Hardly useful at
all.
SPOTTER
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Companion: Craig Boone
Usefulness: [.....]
Description: Hostile targets are highlighted when you're actively aiming.
Not very useful either.
STEALTH GIRL
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Companion: Lily
Usefulness: [****.]
Description: Increases Stealth-Boy duration by 200% and also increases Sneak
Attack Critical hits by +10% damage. Very nice for a companion
perk!
WHISKEY ROSE
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Companion: Cass
Usefulness: [****.]
Description: Consuming Whiskey doesn't reduce your SPECIAL stats and you are
no longer at risk of getting addicted to Whiskey, but you do raise
your Damage Treshold. Useful to say the least!

ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Traits make their return in Fallout New Vegas, and while similar to perks, they
have two major differences: 1. Traits are chosen at the very start of the game,
during your character build. Your character's traits will remain with you after
finalizing your character build. 2. Traits have negative effects besides the
benefits they can provide. All traits have one rank, and you can either choose
none, one or a maximum of two. This section analyses all available traits and
gives you some advice on which to pick.
BUILT TO DESTROY
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Positive effects: +3% chance for all weapons to deliver a critical hit.
Negative effects: +15% faster condition decay for all weapons.
This trait is best taken if you want to maximize your combat potential, and if
you like to rely on luck. The downside is a fairly big one: All your weapons
will last about 1/6th less long than they normally would, which brings a lot of
costs along. Should you pick this trait, be sure to quickly invest in your
Repair skill early on. I personally wouldn't recommend this trait.
FAST SHOT
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Positive effects: +20% firing rate with Guns and Energy Weapons.
Negative effects: -20% accuracy with Guns and Energy Weapons.
A typical specialisation trait, forcing you to choose between a faster firing
rate at the cost of accuracy. Its counterpart is the Trigger Discipline trait.
FOUR EYES
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Positive effects: +1 PER when wearing any type of glasses.
Negative effects: -1 PER when not wearing glasses.
To be honest, this one's quite awful. It reduces your characters natural PER
by 1 point, and increases the bonus you get from glasses by 1 point (making +2).
This means that when taking perks, you'll actually need one ADDITIONAL point of
Perception to be allowed to select the perk. Friend of the Nigh, for example,
will now require 7 PER instead of 6 PER. This Trait is therefore garbage.
GOOD NATURED
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Positive effects: +5 points in Barter, Medicine, Repair, Science and Speech.
Negative effects: -5 points in Energy Weapons, Explosives, Guns, Melee Weapons
and Unarmed.
A specialisation in skill sets, laying focus on negotiation skills and problem
solving skills, while deteriorating weapon skills. Depending on how you'd like
to play the game early on, this can actually be a decent pick, but remember that
it'll be more difficult to eventually create a balanced all-round (nearly)
maxed character build.
HEAVY HANDED
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Positive effects: Melee and unarmed attacks do more damage.
Negative effects: Melee and unarmed attacks do less critical damage.
Only important for characters who'll focus on being a melee and/or unarmed
fighter, this trait increases the damage you do with each regular hit, but it
reduces the damage that your critical hits do. If you don't like to rely on
luck all too much, this is a great trait to boost your melee/unarmed damage
with.
KAMIKAZE
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Positive effects: Grants you a extra whopping of +10 Action Points.
Negative effects: -2 Damage Treshold.
Arguably one of the best traits, this increases your V.A.T.S. with 10 AP! Since
perks such as Grim Reaper's Sprint have been dumbed down, AP has become more
important, and if you find that you're using V.A.T.S. quite often, you simply
can't let this one slip away. The -2 DT is neglectible, and a good armor will
more than make up for it soon enough.
LOOSE CANNON
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Positive effects: +30% faster speed with throwing weapons.
Negative effects: -25% range with throwing weapons.
This allows you to throw faster, but also less far with throwing weapons. It's
one of those traits that makes you wonder how the development went: "Hmm, hey
guys we only have 9 traits, shouldn't we, like, make 10? Boss: "Yeah, ten's a
nice number, what do you think?" Fat Joe: "Hey, um, why don't we, like, reduce
the range of throwing weapons. Oh, and um .., we'll just increase the speed!"
Boss: "Do it, the game's deadline is in two months." It *can* have its uses,
though. If you like to use grenades and/or dynamite in small corridors, then
range isn't a big issue, but throwing one faster could save your hide.
SMALL FRAME
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Positive effects: +1 AGL.
Negative effects: Your legs are more easily crippled.
Well, if you're a stats maximizer, this one's for you! It does require you to
be more careful around explosives, mines, grenades and the like. You'll want
to invest more money in Doctor Bags and Stimpaks than you'd normally would, but
combined with a slight increase in your Medicine Skill, this can be a very
decent trait.
TRIGGER DISCIPLINE
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Positive effects: -20% firing rate with Guns and Energy Weapons.
Negative effects: +20% accuracy with Guns and Energy Weapons.
The counterpart of the Fast Shot trait, this one reduces your firing rate for
an increase in accuracy. If you're not into brutal characters with machine guns
and plasma rifles, but more a sniper kind of person, this could be a decent
choice for you.
WILD WASTELAND
ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
Positive effects: Adds some (random) events and (unique) weapons.
Negative effects: Removes some (random) events and (unique) weapons.
This Perk makes the game more 'Wacky'. A notable change appears to be the
removal of the Gauss Rifle, being replaced by an Alien Blaster. It's an
attempt to 'add' replay value.
