- Lonesome Road (add-on) With the consumption of rushing water; Having Melee Hacker (second rank) and the Slayer perks, the overall increased speed with unarmed and melee weapons will be 110% faster. This being said, the effect on two-handed melee weapons will be up to par on swinging as fast as a one-handed melee weapon; However, One-handed weapons will be uncontrollably fast, letting the player slice, whack or punch as fast as the player can mash the attack button. One such one-handed melee weapon is the katana with the katana balanced grip modification added, which provides one of the fastest melee options in the game.
Behind the scenesEdit
The name of this perk may be a reference to the Clint Eastwood film Unforgiven, in which the character William Munny declares he "ain't like that no more" whenever his past acts of gunslinging and murder are discussed. The Vault Boy graphic is based on motifs used in old Western TV shows and films: removing a black hat (which was used to indicate bad guys) and wearing a white one instead.
xbox360 ps3 pc When viewed in the GECK, this perk has another effect not stated by the perk's description. This effect is an AP cost reduction of 20% for all weapons. However, the effect uses an entry point of "Calculate Weapon Attack AP Cost" which only affects attacks OUTSIDE of VATS. This meant that the player will not receive any decrease in AP Costs when using weapons (except outside of VATS which is entirely pointless since using weapons outside of VATS require no AP costs).
