You've had enough of the so-called "authorities" pushing poor folks around! You gain +2 Damage Threshold and +5% Critical Chance against anyone wearing the faction armor of the NCR, Legion, or Brotherhood.— In-game description

Fight the Power! is a perk in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.


Taking this perk grants a temporary bonus of +2 DT and +5% Critical Chance when against human and/or ghoul NPCs wearing NCR, Legion, or Brotherhood of Steel faction armor.

Affected armor and clothing[]

Per the perk description, the bonuses are activated based on the apparel of the NPC if/when they turn hostile. Listed below are the armor/clothing items required to be in an NPC's inventory and equipped to trigger the perk, separated by faction.

Brotherhood of Steel[]

Caesar's Legion[]

New California Republic[]


Any NPC wearing one of the affected pieces of apparel will trigger the perk effects regardless of their actual faction alignment.

Behind the scenes[]

The perk name is a reference to the Public Enemy song of the same name, with the perk's anti-authoritarianism being a further reference to the lyrics of the song itself.[1]
