Grognak the Barbarian is a perk magazine in Fallout 76.


Main article: Grognak the Barbarian

Grognak the Barbarian is a fantasy comic book published by Hubris Comics prior to the Great War. The series follows the story of the main character, Grognak, and the cover art for each comic book depicts imagery of Grognak on the eponymous adventure. Issues of Grognak the Barbarian cost $23 per copy.


Reading an issue of Grognak the Barbarian will temporarily give the player character a unique bonus, such as increased melee damage or increased carry weight. All bonuses expire after 30 minutes (60 minutes with Curator), and the magazine is consumed once read.

Issues of Grognak the Barbarian are affected by Pannapictagraphist and will emit directional audio when the player character is in range.

  • The Grognak the Barbarian comic books in Fallout 76 share identical titles and cover art from Fallout 4; however the bonuses they provide are different in addition to the effect duration being temporary.
  • Most of the issue numbers are torn off the magazines. However, The Art of Fallout 4 has clean versions of the issues where the numbers, if they have them, can be read.
  • 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.

Behind the scenes

The issue entitled "Cometh the Trickster" is a reference to Thief: The Dark Project, a stealth game in which the primary antagonist was named the Trickster, with a very similar physical appearance. The pictured scene mimics the cutscene in which the Trickster first reveals his true nature.
