While using a pistol (or similar one-handed weapon), your accuracy in V.A.T.S. is significantly increased.— Fallout 3 in-game description

Gunslinger is a Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 perk.

Fallout 3 and Fallout: New VegasEdit

EffectsEdit

While using a pistol (or similar one-handed weapon), your chance to hit in V.A.T.S. is increased by 25%.

As with all perks that increase your chance to hit in V.A.T.S., this bonus is multiplicative, not additive.

Affected weapons in Fallout 3Edit

Affected weapons in Fallout: New VegasEdit

Ranks 2 and 3 each add 25% range, for +50% total. Rank 4 gives a 6% chance to disarm. Rank 5 increases this to an 8% chance to disarm, plus adds an 8% chance to cripple the limb you hit. In addition, if Nuka-World is installed, Gunslinger now becomes a crafting perk, mainly required for certain upgrades to the Western revolver.

Affected weapons in Fallout 4Edit

Asterisk (*) marked weapons must not have a shoulder supported stock installed to benefit from this perk; having a stock will make these weapons benefit from Rifleman instead. In addition, all of these weapons must not have an automatic mod installed (regardless of the stock used).

NotesEdit

  • This perk only affects one-handed pistols and SMGs in the Small Guns and Energy Weapons category.
  • This perk replaces the One Hander trait from previous Fallout games.
  • This perk will not counteract the effects of the Fast Shot trait unless you're in V.A.T.S. mode.
  • In Fallout: New Vegas, despite being a one-handed SMG-like weapon and governed by the Guns skill, the H&H Tools nail gun is not affected by this perk.
  • In Fallout 4, all automatic pistols are affected by the Commando perk rather than by Gunslinger.
  • In Fallout 4, plasma thrower with pistol grip is affected by Gunslinger perk instead, even though it fires automatically.
  • In Fallout 4. the third rank of this perk adds an astonishing amount of range to energy pistols. This causes both the laser and plasma pistols to have a significantly longer effective range than that of their rifle counterparts.
  • In Fallout 4, the crippling effect of the final rank affects all weapons.
