The Here and Now perk immediately grants an additional experience level, complete with all the advantages thatIn-game spelling brings.— In-game description

Here and Now is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas.

Effects

This perk "advances the character to the next experience level, if available, with all advantages that entails" - Except one advantage. The level you just gained has no perk, as Here and Now effectively disappears after giving you another level. In simpler terms, you level up again at the cost of a perk.

Notes

  • If you do the perk glitch of obtaining more than 15 perks, you can use the Here and Now perk to stop from leveling up from level 10 onward. You still lose out on a more beneficial perk, but now you can get XP like a normal game after level 10.
  • If the player wishes to pursue a Neutral Karma path to obtain the achievements at the respected levels, Here And Now can help jump to the next level in case the player wishes not to risk waiting another level where they might have to make Karma decisions that dip down to Evil or above to Good Karma in addition to gaining XP, which might lead to accidentally getting to the desired level with Evil or Good Karma rather than Neutral.
