The U.S. Covert Operations Manual is a magazine in Fallout 4.


Produced and issued by the Department of the Army to train its soldiers in the art of subterfuge, there are ten issues in total of the covert operations manuals and each issue found adds a rank to the Covert Operations perk, which slightly reduces the chances of being detected while sneaking.

Although each installment of this military manual adds a rank to the Covert Operations perk, the Fallout 4 loading screen hints incorrectly describe it as the "Infiltration" perk.[1]

Behind the scenes

The title of issue 4 "Not the Soldiers You're Looking For" is a cultural reference to Star Wars.


  1. Fallout 4 loading screen hints: "Each installment of the US Covert Ops Training Manual you collect adds a rank in the Infiltration perk, which grants a slight increase to your sneak chance."
