“Beams reflect off the mirror-like finish of your gleaming armor! You gain an additional +5 Damage Threshold against energy weapons while wearing any metal armor, +2 while wearing reflective eyewear.”— Dead Money description
Behind the scenes
- The name of the perk is a reference to the phrase "A knight in shining armor."
- The +2 DT effect for wearing reflective eyewear is handled by a separate, hidden perk.
This perk does not provide any DT boost because the parameter that is referenced when checking the skill type of enemy weapons is "Energy" instead of "EnergyWeapons". This means that the function "IsWeaponSkillType" will never return a value that can activate the perk effect, because there is no weapon skill called "Energy". [verified]
- This bug was fixed in JSawyer.
