Burden to Bear is a perk in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.


The wastelander with the most gear wins! (...or at least survives.) You can now carry an additional 50 pounds of gear. This perk also stacks with Strong Back and can raise your carry weight beyond 300 lbs.


When combined with a Strength of 10, Strong Back, the NCR Courier duster and the Hoarder trait you can achieve a carrying weight of 400 pounds, well over the standard weight limit.

Behind the scenes

Chris Avellone created a perk idea contest via Twitter for FNV T-Shirts. One of the competition winners created the perk Burden to Bare which would have allowed the player's movement to not be restricted based on armor type (heavy, medium, light).
