Grognak the Barbarian is a perk magazine in Fallout 4 that gives the player character ranks of the Barbarian perk.


Main article: Grognak the Barbarian

Grognak the Barbarian is a series of comic books published by Hubris Comics in the mid-21st century. The comic books relate the adventures of the main character in a prehistoric world.


The magazines consist of a 10-issue run that each gives an additional rank of the Barbarian perk, which raises the critical damage of unarmed or melee attacks by 5%. This stacks together to gain up to a 50% increase in melee or unarmed critical damage, if all comics have been found.

  • In addition to the magazines, Grognak's axe and costume are located within the Hubris Comics building.
  • Issue #09 "In the Lair of the Virgin Eater" is the same comic book that is on the cover of all Grognak the Barbarian comics in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
  • There are actually 11 Grognak the Barbarian comics to find across the Commonwealth, as Issue #05 "Demon Slaves, Demon Sands" has 2 copies, one in Vault 75 and one rewarded for the quest Short Stories. Regardless if one gathers all 11 or misses an issue, they will get the Barbarian perk ranked ten levels. However, getting 2 copies of "Demon Slaves, Demon Sands" will not rank the player character ten levels if they are retrieved before getting all the others. All separate issues are needed to rank 10 in the Barbarian perk. Cometh the Trickster may respawn, in its original location.
  • Along with Silver Shroud, Manta Man, The Inspector and Mistress of Mystery, Grognak is featured as part of The Unstoppables franchise.
