You gain +25 lbs. to your carrying capacity, but suffer a -1 to all attributes any time the weight you're carrying drop below 160 lbs.”— In-game description, Fallout: New Vegas
You gain +25 lbs. to your total carrying weight but suffer a -1 to all SPECIAL stats any time your total carrying weight is below 160 lbs.
- Synergizes well with Strong Back, Burden to Bear, Long Haul and Pack Rat. It also works well with Travel Light, which despite its name, increases movement speed even when over-encumbered.
- This trait seems to be the only way to raise your carrying weight above 300 without Lonesome Road, raising the total possible carrying weight to 325. With the addition of the NCR Courier duster and Burden to Bear Perk, the maximum weight limit becomes a staggering 400 lbs.
- This trait is advised as the negative effects can easily be countered by picking up low value miscellaneous items you can drop once you reach your weight limit. In Hardcore mode, ammunition can fill the requirement, allowing a colorful weapons loadout for a Guns user or a more well-armed than usual Energy Weapons user.
