Protect what's important. With the Gray Matters perk you'll receive 25% less damage when hit in the head.

Gray Matters is a perk found in the data files of the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout. It does not appear in the game and can only be obtained with console commands.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The term "gray matter" is used for one of the two major components of the central nervous system (along with white matter).
  • The perk may have been associated with the lump of brain obtained from the Duchess Gambit engine room after dealing with Tobar.
  • The perk may also have been associated with A Meeting of the Minds, possibly as a reward for helping Calvert and killing Desmond.
