Fallout and Fallout 2 description

Mutate! is a perk in Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Allows the player to replace one trait with another. This perk is useless in Fallout, as choosing correctly in the first place is a much better option than changing later (unless playing 1.0, where replacing Gifted did not reduce the SPECIAL).

It's slightly better in Fallout 2, as allows for mutating Finesse into Fast Shot if the player selects the Sniper perk.

It's quite useful in Fallout Tactics in order to modify traits of squad members or add one if they have none.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The image for the perk is an allusion to Bruce Banner and his alter-ego the Hulk from Marvel Comics's The Incredible Hulk.
