Grognak the Barbarian is a perk magazine in Fallout 4.


Grognak the Barbarian was a series of comic books published and manufactured by Hubris Comics in the mid-21st century. These pre-War comic books portray the fictional adventures of an epic hero in a prehistoric fantasy setting.


These magazines consist of a 10-issue run that, upon reading, award an additional rank into the Barbarian perk, which upon unlocking, raises the critical damage of melee and unarmed attacks by 5%.

Behind the scenes

  • The issue entitles "Cometh the Trickster" is a reference to Thief: The Dark Project A stealth game in which the primary antagonist was named the Trickster, with a very similar physical appearance. The scene pictured mimics the cutscene in which the Trickster first reveals his true nature. The issue is notably found in a recreation of Lead Designer Emil Pagliarulo's childhood bedroom. Before being hired by Bethesda, Emil was a level designer on Thief's Gold edition, as well as it's sequel, designing some of Thief II's most popular missions.
    • The mechanics of stealth in Fallout 3, New Vegas and Fallout 4 are based on the same light and sound stealth metrics of the original Thief game, albeit simplified.
    • This forms one of a few references to Emil Pagliarulo's time at Looking Glass Studios.
