Slayer is a perk available in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout Tactics, J.E. Sawyer's Fallout Role-Playing Game, Lionheart, and a Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel skill (skills in this game work like perks do in other Fallout games).
Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout TacticsEdit
The Slayer walks the earth! With a successful Luck roll, all of your hits in hand-to-hand combat are upgraded to critical hits - causing destruction and mayhem.”
Despite the in-game description, Slayer does not need a Luck roll, all hand-to-hand attacks are upgraded to critical hits.
Fallout: New VegasEdit
The perk increases the speed of all melee and unarmed attacks by 30%.
- When completely bare-handed (no weapon equipped), swings will still be at a normal speed and unaffected by this perk.
- This perk does not affect Action Point costs. However, the increased speed does make V.A.T.S. attacks execute faster, thus reducing the amount of time that the Courier is "locked" in V.A.T.S. sequences where they are left vulnerable.
- The benefit of this perk can be utilized even more with the consumption of rushing water Lonesome Road (add-on), offering a combination of +80% Melee/Unarmed attack speed.
Fallout: Brotherhood of SteelEdit
Each level of this skill increases your Critical Chance for +5% (up to a maximum +25) when attacking a target.
- 1 Rank : 2 Points
- 2 Rank : 4 Points
- 3 Rank : 8 Points
- 4 Rank : 16 Points
- 5 Rank : 32 Points
J.E. Sawyer's Fallout Role-Playing GameEdit
The slayer walks the Wasteland! When using unarmed attacks, your successful attack rolls are increased by 30 for purposes of determining critical hit results.
Behind the scenesEdit
- Slayer in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel shares the same Vault Boy image as Better Criticals of Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics.
- The Vault Boy image of Slayer in Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout: New Vegas is a reference to the 1982 action-adventure fantasy film Conan the Barbarian.
- The perk was given its name because Chris Jones was a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
