“Animals will not attack one of their friends, unless the animal is threatened or attacked first. Exactly what an animal is in this world is open to debate.”— In-game description
Animal Friend is a perk in Fallout.
With this perk, some animals will not attack the Vault Dweller, unless the animal is attacked first. This perk applies to all forms of rats and almost all radscorpions, with those located in Shady Sands' radscorpion caves being the exception.
- Coyotes, dogs, brahmin, deathclaws and mantises are not classified as animals for the purpose of this perk.
- The perk icon in Fallout is visually different from later games in the series, due to the rabbit having an extra ear, eye, tooth and a webbed foot.
- The perk can be found as legacy content in the game files for Fallout 2.
