Waste not, want not. When you use Energy Weapons, you are more likely to recover drained ammunition. You also have more efficient recycling recipes available at the wasteland's workbenches.

— In-game perk description.

Vigilant Recycler is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas.

EffectsEdit

The Vigilant Recycler perk makes you twice as likely to recover drained cells when you use Energy weapons and improves the conversion ratio when recycling drained cells from 4:1 to 3:1. If Gun Runners' Arsenal is also installed, it unlocks the "optimized" variant for every energy weapons ammo type (ECP, MFC, Energy cell, and Flamer fuel). All optimized cells share the same basic effects of increasing damage output by 30%, reducing the enemy DT by -5 and increase weapon degradation rate by 10%.

NotesEdit

  • No other materials are needed to craft energy ammunition.
  • The Gun Runners' Arsenal adds new optimized energy weapons ammunition when this perk is taken, which is more powerful than Overcharged ammo, has the same DT reduction, puts less strain on the weapon and even weighs less, all for the same ammo conversion rate.

Behind the scenesEdit

The description refers to the recycling slogan "Waste not, want not." The original quote is attributed to Benjamin Franklin who was noted for his frugality.
