The radiation of the wasteland has changed you! One of your traits has mutated into something else...”— In-game description
Allows swapping a trait for another.
- In unpatched Fallout, Gifted could be swapped for another trait while keeping the Character Points.
- While minimally useful in Fallout and Fallout 2, Mutate! is a reasonable perk in Fallout Tactics, where it can be used to remove unfavored traits from NPC squad members.
- If a character has only one trait, it alone must be exchanged for a new one. The empty slot cannot be filled.
- Averted in Fallout Tactics, Mutate! can be used to give traits to NPC party members who have none already.
Behind the scenesEdit
The image for this perk is a reference to Marvel Comics' Dr. Bruce Banner/The Hulk. The image of the split personality always appeared at the end of the introscene during the television series, which ran from 1978 until 1982.
