The maximum amount of equipment your character can carry, in pounds.

— in-game description, Fallout

Carry Weight is a derived statistic in the SPECIAL system.

Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout TacticsEdit

Your character will become slower as more weight is put on. When your character reaches the maximum weight, he or she becomes completely weighed down and cannot move until the weight is back under control.

\text{Initial level}=25+(\text{Strength}\times25)

Example: A starting Strength of 5.



\text{Initial level}=25+(\text{Strength}\times15)

Fallout 3 and Fallout: New VegasEdit

Movement speed is unaffected by your character's Carry Weight until the weight of items carried exceeds your total carry weight, at which point your character will become overencumbered and unable to run, jump, or fast travel, with the exception of the Long Haul perk in New Vegas.

\text{Initial level}=150+(\text{Strength}\times10)

Example: A starting Strength of 5.



  • Every added point of Strength increases your weight limit by 10 lbs.
  • The maximum initial level is capped at 250 lbs without the addition of extra perks.
  • The Strong Back perk increases the limit by 50 lbs.
  • The Burden to Bear perk can increase this limit by another 50 lbs.
  • The Hoarder trait increases the limit by 25 lbs.
  • The NCR Courier duster increases carry weight by another 25 lbs.
  • Buffout can temporarily increase this limit by another 20 lbs per dose, provided that you have 8 or less Strength points.
  • In Fallout: New Vegas, the maximum amount of weight you can carry is 400 lbs.
  • Using the console command "player.modav" carry weight can be increased to a max of 20,106 lbs.
  • If you have the Long Haul perk in New Vegas, you can still fast-travel while over-encumbered.
  • More information about weight and how to manage it is on the Weight article.
