Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, J.E. Sawyer's RPG, and Lion Heart[edit | edit source]
Experience in unarmed combat has given you the edge when it comes to damage. You cause +2 points of damage with hand-to-hand and melee attacks for each level of this Perk.
”— Fallout and Fallout 2 description
Adds +2 points of damage with hand-to-hand and melee attacks per rank (+6 total).
The perk is useless. The increase in damage is negligible, requiring all three ranks to have a noticeable effect.
- The description of the perk in Fallout Tactics say that the perk gives +15% additional damage with hand-to-hand and melee attacks, but in fact the 15% is equivalent to +2 points of damage.
The image for the perk is an allusion to Bruce Banner and his alter-ego the Hulk from Marvel Comics's The Incredible Hulk.
