With the Retention perk, the bonuses granted by skill magazines last three times as long.”— In-game description, Fallout: New Vegas
Effects[edit | edit source]
With Retention, the duration of the skill magazines lasts for 3 minutes instead of 1 minute. This perk is useful when supplementing a weapon skill with magazines, where time may be a factor. Non-combat skills, like hacking terminals or dialogue successes, generally don't need the added time.
