When you are tough, you take less damage. Each level of this Perk adds +10% to your general damage resistance.

Fallout 2 description

Toughness is a perk in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout Tactics, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, and Van Buren.

Effects

Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics

+10% to basic damage resistance (+30% total). Useful, as protection is always good.

In Lionheart, the equivalent of this perk is called Damage Resistance.

Fallout 3

+10% to the overall Damage Resistance (capped at 85%).

The perk also adds a unique dialogue option when talking to Ted Strayer during the You Gotta Shoot 'Em in the Head quest.[1]

Fallout: New Vegas

+3 points to the player's Damage Threshold (+6 with both ranks).

This perk can neutralize the DT penalty of Kamikaze.

Fallout 4

The Toughness perk increases your Damage Resistance.

Fallout 4 loading screen hints
  • Rank 1: +10 damage resistance
  • Rank 2: +20 damage resistance
  • Rank 3: +30 damage resistance
  • Rank 4: +40 damage resistance
  • Rank 5: +50 damage resistance

Van Buren

Even tougher than the old Toughness! No longer just bullets and punches, now you can resist fire, plasma, and grenades!

Behind the scenes

The image for this perk is a reference to Superman, especially in Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics when the Vault Boy has the Superman hairstyle.
