Piercing Strike is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas.


Piercing Strike makes all of your Unarmed and Melee Weapons (including thrown) negate 15 points of Damage Threshold on the target.


  • Since most enemies have a DT at or below this amount, this perk essentially turns you into a deathclaw when using unarmed or melee weapons, as deathclaws negate Damage Threshold when attacking.
  • Living Anatomy will automatically display the adjusted DT after taking this perk.
