Scrounger is a Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 4 perk.

Fallout and Fallout 2Edit

You can find more ammunition than the normal post-apocalyptic survivor. This perk will double the amount of ammunition found in random encounters.

Fallout 3Edit

You will find considerably more ammunition in containers than you normally would.

NotesEdit

  • This perk will not affect killed enemies or containers in locations that were visited prior to taking the perk, as these containers are filled when first encountered.
  • In most cases, this perk will double the maximum amount of randomly generated ammunition available in newly encountered containers. Each new ammo item has the same 75% chance of spawning as the original ammo leveled lists.

Fallout: New VegasEdit

It is functionally identical to the Fallout 3 version of the perk, however with options of recycling ammunition its usefulness could be debated when applied to certain characters.

NotesEdit

  • This perk will not affect killed enemy corpses or containers in locations that were visited prior to taking the perk, as these containers are filled when first encountered.
  • In most cases, this perk will double the maximum amount of randomly generated ammunition available in newly encountered containers. Each new ammo item has the same 75% chance of spawning as the original ammo leveled lists.

Fallout 4Edit

You find more ammunition in containers.

— Rank 1 description

Allows certain types of ammunition to be found as loot in random containers (i.e. cabinets, desks, metal cabinets, etc). It works similar to the Fortune Finder perk. If both Scrounger and the Fortune Finder perk are obtained you will find both ammunition and caps in the same containers. A wise investment players who search extensively through the locations.

Rank Requirements Description Base ID
1 LCK 2 You find more ammunition in containers. 0004a0b0
2 LCK 2, LVL 7 You find even more ammunition in containers. 001acf9a
3 LCK 2, LVL 24 You find even more ammunition in containers. 001acf9b
4* LCK 2, LVL 37 There is a 5% chance (+Luck) to gain ammo when firing the last round in your clip. 001eb99c

* The Rank 4 description is misleading: it gives a chance to add a free magazine-clip or fusion core, when you fully empty the gun, not "more ammo".

Affected ammunitionEdit

This perk only affects the following ammunition types. Any ammunition type not listed here is unaffected by this perk:

NotesEdit

  • This version of the perk also applies to enemies as well as containers (unlike in previous games).
  • As Fallout 4 does not have the ability to create ammunition without DLC and factories, this perk can be very helpful in obtaining ammunition without having to purchase it.
