You sleep deeply no matter where you are. You get the Well Rested benefit of +10% XP for eight hours no matter what bed you sleep in.— In-game description

Deep Sleep is a perk added to Fallout 3 with the Broken Steel add-on.


  • This perk is of questionable value unless already having the Swift Learner perk at level 3 and want to increase gaining of experience even more, such as for obtaining the level 30 achievements. Also neither of the experience-gaining perks have any benefit past the level cap, and thus they generally "waste" a perk slot.
  • Taking Swift Learner instead of this grants a permanent 10% exp boost with no matter of sleeping. But, being well rested along with having the level 3 perk will double this exp boost.
  • The Vault Boy image is similar to that of the Mister Sandman-one, excluding the murderer with a knife and the mattress. It shows the Vault Boy sleeping on a bed of spikes instead.
  • Beds flagged as owned (red name) cannot be rested in even with this perk, keep this in mind if scouting for a non-standard home to use with the perk.
