Your heart is back in your body, but some advanced technologies remain: You are more resistant to poison (50%) and robots are only somewhat confused by you (25% less likely to score a critical hit) now. But on the bright side, healing items (chems) are even more effective!”— Fallout: New Vegas description
You gain +50% poison resistance, +50% bonus to healing items and robots have -25% critical chance against you.
- Cazadores are less of a threat with this perk as it becomes rarer to be poisoned by them.
- Compared to the Heartless perk, you gain an additional +25% bonus to healing items at the cost of +25% critical chance from robots against you and +50% poison resistance rather than immunity.
- Grants the full 85% resistance to poison when combined with 8 Endurance, the maximum you can achieve in derived statistics.
- There is a mess up in the description of the perk where it states you are 50% LESS resistant to poisons when the perk actually makes you 50% more resistant.
- This makes perfect sense in context, however: Since the only (legitimate) way to get this perk is to give up the Heartless perk, this means you have gone from 100% resistance (immunity) to 50% resistance, which is indeed a 50% reduction.
- Cardiac Arrest shares the same Vault boy image as Heartless.
