Kamikaze is a Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout Tactics trait. It is present as a perk in the datafiles of Fallout 3, but not implemented.


Fallout and Fallout 2Edit

By not paying attention to any threats, you can act a lot faster in a turn. This lowers your Armor Class to just what you are wearing, but you sequence much faster in a combat turn.Fallout 2 In-game description

With this trait, your sequence gets a +5 bonus, but your natural armor class is decreased to zero. You must wear armor to have an armor class.

Fallout 3Edit

Provides +20 AP but costs 20 Damage Resistance.

Found in Fallout 3 data files (GameEffects/ActorEffect/Ability/PerkKamikaze), prerequisites and description unknown. As Fallout 3 has no traits at all, it was probably cut at an early stage of development.

Fallout: New VegasEdit

This trait gives you an additional 10 Action Points at the cost of two points of Damage Threshold. The Vault Boy icon is also changed from the previous icon.

Fallout TacticsEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Kamikaze, in Japanese, means "Divine Wind," referring to the two windstorms that destroyed an overwhelming Mongolian naval force about to attack Japan in the 13th century, and was used in World War II to refer to Japanese suicide attackers.
  • The picture for this trait in previous Fallout games shows Vault Boy holding a knife in his right hand and a pistol in his left. In Fallout: New Vegas, the picture shows Vault Boy holding the weapons the other way around.
  • The image of the Vault Boy in the earlier games icon appears to have the same hair-style as the Marvel X-Men character, Wolverine.
