Veronica has received the Elijah's Last Words perk.
She has learned a secret Melee Weapon technique that increases her attack speed by 150% and gives her a 25% chance to knock down enemies.
— In-game description

Elijah's Last Words is a unique companion perk in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Dead Money.


To obtain this perk, after completing the quest line in Dead Money, leave the Sierra Madre area. When you reach the abandoned Brotherhood of Steel bunker, turn right into the side room. Use the terminal here and choose the Download Holomessage option. Head back to the Mojave Wasteland and find Veronica. Initiate dialogue and choose "Tell me about yourself." Then exhaust all the options relating to Father Elijah.

Now back out to her main dialogue menu and choose "I found Elijah." To get this perk, you must let her have the holomessage.

Choosing to keep the holomessage for yourself will grant the Elijah's Ramblings perk.


This perk increases Veronica's melee attack speed by 150% and gives her melee attacks a 25% chance to knock down enemies.


  • Elijah's Last Words does not have a Vault Boy image nor in-game description.
  • Like Veronica's unique companion perk Causeless Rebel, Elijah's Last Words does not seem to appear at all in the Pipboy, even after receiving the notification of acquiring this perk.
  • This perk will only affect Veronica's melee attacks, not her unarmed attacks. Her Melee Weapons skill is not tagged and can never rise above 18.
