From frag grenades to throwing spears, you can throw weapons 30% faster at the cost of 25% less range

— In-game description

Loose Cannon is a Fallout: New Vegas trait.

EffectsEdit

Specifically, your attack speed is increased by 30%, and your Action Point consumption for thrown weapons is reduced by 30% as well, but you lose 25% of thrown weapon velocity, shortening the distance from which you can hit a target. One may compensate for this penalty by taking the Heave, Ho! perk later on. This trait does not affect V.A.T.S. chances to hit, but does lower the AP cost of thrown weapons used in V.A.T.S.

Affected weaponsEdit

Melee
Explosives

NotesEdit

This trait synergizes well with the Heavy Handed trait, due to it affecting throwing spears, a utilitarian ranged weapon for a heavy-handed melee character.
