For the Fallout 4 trophy/achievement, see Animal Control (achievement).

You handle animals really well when they are dead and gain a damage bonus against the living ones.

Animal Control is a challenge perk in Fallout: New Vegas. It is gained automatically after killing a certain number of mutated animals.

Effects[edit | edit source]

This perk applies a small (3/6/10%) damage bonus against mutated animals.

Affected creatures[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This perk has three ranks; each rank provides an additional bonus and requires 50/100/150 animals to be killed to earn it.
  • Kills made by a companion do not count towards kills needed to earn this perk.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • PCIcon pc.png Perk progress freezes at 20/50 animals.[verified]
    • Appears to be fixed as of patch
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png When the 3rd rank of this perk is achieved, the pop-up message may give a ridiculous number (such as 3940517670000000000...) as the perk rank instead of 3.[verified]
