You have mastered one aspect of bartering - the ability to buy goods far cheaper than a normal person. With this Perk, you get a 25% discount when purchasing items from a store or another trader.”— Fallout description
Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics[edit | edit source]
Adds a -25% discount to purchased items. The actual discount varies between 15 and 30%, as the game appears to apply the cumulatively, rather than sequentially. The Fallout 2 manual incorrectly states that this perk makes the player's own items more valuable, and that the Barter requirement is 60%.
Either way, the perk is functionally useless, as there is no shortage of money in the games.
Fallout 3[edit | edit source]
Applies a -25% discount to all purchased items. The impact of the perk is limited, as at 60 Barter most traders will already sell their wares at their base cost. However, it does add additional dialogue options, for example, with Uncle Roe of Canterbury Commons during Merchant Empire.
Lionheart[edit | edit source]
Adds a -25% discount to purchased wares and 10 points to Speech.
