— In-game description

The Gun Nut perk grants acess to more effective gun mods.

— VDSG Catalogue No.9270.

Gun Nut is a Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 perk.

Fallout 3Edit


Each of the three ranks of this perk permanently increases the player character's Repair and Small Guns skills by five points.


  • Having this perk will grant a dialog option to the Lone Wanderer when starting the Reilly's Rangers quest by talking to Reilly, in which they will mention that they've heard that the Rangers carry "some serious firepower."
  • The perk image shows a missile launcher amongst the collection of weapons. The missile launcher is actually a Big Gun, and so it will not get a bonus from this perk but instead would benefit from the Heavy Gunner perk.

Fallout 4Edit

In Fallout 4, Gun Nut returns as a feature to enhance projectile weapon modification, and it also enables the player character to build turrets in their settlements.
