Sneak Sight is an effect granted by wearing either the riot gear helmet, or its superior versions: the advanced riot gear helmet, or the elite riot gear helmet. It is not necessary to be wearing the matching sets of armor in order to receive the sneak sight effect from the helmets.


To activate sneak sight, simply crouch. When activating sneak mode, a soft mechanical whirring similar to a camera lens can be heard as sneak sight takes effect.

While outside, the player's vision will appear to be as if in black and white. However, when indoors, the player's vision takes on more of a reddish tint, and appears to be more like sepia. There is a brief delay of about a second after entering an indoor area as the player's vision adjusts from black and white to sepia, although there is no perceptible delay when switching from sepia to black and white upon exiting from indoors to outside.

This effect will cancel out once you exit sneak mode, although the other effects remain as long as the helmet is worn and do not require sneak sight to be active.


  • When the sneak sight effect cancels out, a blueish white haze passes across the player's field of vision obscuring visibility for less than a second as normal night vision and full color vision returns.
  • Like the varmint rifle night scope, this effect only works from 6:00PM to 6:00AM (18.00 to 06.00), or while indoors.


The Sneak Sight effect appears only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.
