Just when your enemies think they have the upper hand, Miss Fortune appears to turn their world upside down. Appearing only in V.A.T.S., she has the ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

— in-game description

Miss Fortune is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas.


With this perk, Miss Fortune will appear 10% of the time in V.A.T.S. to attack enemies. To trigger an appearance, the player character must complete a series of attacks in V.A.T.S. without killing their opponent.

Unlike the Mysterious Stranger, Miss Fortune's attacks deal low damage to an area, aiming to cripple and knockdown enemies rather than kill them outright.

Miss Fortune's gun creates a "fortune" percentage for the target.

If their fortune is under 35:

If their fortune is between 35 and 65:

If their fortune is above 65, only the limb crippling is applied. Remember, this is all determined per shot, and Miss Fortune will more than likely empty her revolver for all 6 shots in a V.A.T.S. attack.


  • The Mysterious Stranger perk is functionally similar.
  • Both the Miss Fortune and Mysterious Stranger perks can be chosen by the Courier, but they cannot appear together in the same V.A.T.S. sequence as they share the same trigger.
  • It is possible to get a challenge complete, Miss Fortunate Son (or Daughter), where the Mysterious Stranger and Miss Fortune appear a certain amount of times, increasing the probability for them to appear in combat much more often.
  • The crippling effect can be especially useful against opponents which can be frenzied, mainly robots and insects.
