Have you been working out? Weapons heavier than 10 lbs. now weigh half as much for you. (Modified weapons that drop below 10 lbs. will not gain this benefit.)

Fallout: New Vegas description

Heavyweight is a perk in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Dead Money.


The weight of all weapons over 10 pounds is cut in half. This does not affect weapons modded to weigh under 10 pounds. This is very useful for those who like to carry heavy weapons such as the minigun and the missile launcher. It is also a good perk for those that don't use heavy weapons, because it gives the affected weapons a much better value/weight ratio, and allows them to then carry additional gear.


Energy Weapons:





This perk appears to alter the global weight of affected weapons, not just the Courier's encumbrance values; when giving weapons to companions while the Courier has this perk, the companion is encumbered by half the standard amount.
