Escape Artist is an Agility-based perk in Fallout 76.


Running will no longer produce movement sounds, improving the ability to sneak. Entering sneak mode will temporarily cloak the player, and break detection. This ability may be used once every 5 seconds.

  • Escape Artist does not work while the player is in power armor.
  • Escape Artist renders the muffled armor modification obselete, as it completely eliminates all sound produced when moving.


  • "Running" is the fast movement when pushing a joystick to the outer radius. "Walking", the slow movement, is always silent.
  • The movement sound elimination is applied regardless of sneaking or standing.[verification needed]
  • Sound generated by sprinting is not affected by Escape Artist.
