Hunter is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 2d20.


Fallout: New Vegas

In combat, you do +75% Critical Damage against animals and mutated animals.— in-game description

In combat, you do 75% more critical damage against animals and mutated animals. This perk will not affect abominations or mutated insects. It only affects creatures in the animal and mutated animal categories.

Creatures affected

This includes all varieties of the above, such as golden geckos, pack brahmin, or Legion mongrels. Note that nightstalkers are not a type of coyote and are abominations, so they are not affected by this perk. Fire geckos, as well, are classified as abominations.

Fallout 2d20

When making an attack against a Mutated enemy with either the Mammal, Lizard, or Insect keywords, the attack gains the Vicious damage effect, if it did not already have that effect.


In Fallout: New Vegas, the weapon held by Vault Boy is a trail carbine. In Fallout 2d20, it appears to be a Black powder rifle.
