Fire Resistance allows you to resist fire. The higher your Fire Resistance, the less damage you incur from fire-based attacks, such as from fire ants, or from enemies using fire-based weapons like the flamer, heavy incinerator, the Shishkebab, and Molotov cocktails.

Increasing the resistance[edit | edit source]

Fallout 3[edit | edit source]

If one has all three of the aforementioned flame-retardant abilities, the total will be 85% fire resistance, making enemies such as Enclave Hellfire troopers or fire ants little to no problem.

Fallout: New Vegas[edit | edit source]

Fallout 76[edit | edit source]

Fire resistance is an armor statistic enabled in the Fallout 76 update Patch 22. Fire resistance will reduce incoming fire damage based on a formula. Fire damage may be dealt by weapons like flamer or molotov cocktail, by creature attacks like floater flamers or anglers and by hazards such as the falling embers during A Colossal Problem. Scaling fire resistance has been added on all encounterable NPCs and creatures, however armor penetration options have yet to be implemented.

Player resistance[edit | edit source]

Fire resistance may only be acquired from the following sources:

  • The Sizzling Style legendary perk increases fire resistance by +50/100/150/200 while wearing a matching set of armor, depending on the perk rank.
