Die Hard is a Fallout Tactics and Lionheart perk. It also appears in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel as a skill (skills in this game work like perks do in the other Fallout games).

Fallout TacticsEdit

You don't give up easily, when your Hit Points get below 20% you get an additional 10% to Damage Resistance.

Van BurenEdit

Davidson in Van Buren had this perk. Combined with his armor and his other perks, like Toughness, Davidson became quite powerful.

Fallout: Brotherhood of SteelEdit

Each level of this skill increases your health by +20 (up to a maximum +200) Hit Points. To take it, the player must be Level 3.

Points requirementsEdit

  • 1 Rank : 4 Points (+20 Hit Points)
  • 2 Rank : 8 Points (+50 Hit Points)
  • 3 Rank : 16 Points (+90 Hit Points)
  • 4 Rank : 32 Points (+140 Hit Points)
  • 5 Rank : 64 Points (+200 Hit Points)


When your hit points get below 20%, you gain +20% to all resistances and your Armor Class goes up by 5.


In Fallout Tactics; once the 10% damage resistance bonus kicks in, it stays there even if your HP goes back above 20%. This can be reverted by taking the Toughness perk, however the effect can be re-enabled by letting your HP go back down to 20%. [verified]
