Your character is carrying more than your carry weight. This will slow you down, and may cause you injury.

— Fallout Tactics in-game description

Encumbered is a condition in Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and Fallout 4.

The player character gets this condition when the weight of items in the inventory exceeds the maximum Carry Weight.

Effects Edit

  • Character cannot run (moves slowly)
  • Character is noisy (Sneak affected)
  • In Fallout Tactics, the character may cripple a leg
  • In Fallout 3, New Vegas and Fallout 4 the character cannot fast travel and moves slowly.
  • When playing on survival mode in Fallout 4 the character will take periodic damage.

Removal Edit

This condition is removed when the weight of the inventory drops to or below the carry weight limit.

Notes Edit

The Fallout: New Vegas perk Long Haul, allows fast travelling even when the Courier is over-encumbered.
The Fallout 4 perk Strong Back, allows the Sole Survivor to carry more weight, and if upgraded, they are able to move faster (whilst using Action Points, but at a faster rate) and fast travel.
