With the Light Step perk, you'll never set off an enemy's mines or floor-based traps.— In-game description

Light Step is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas.

Effects

Never set off enemy mines or floor-based traps.

Traps can still be set off by companions (including "floating" companions such as ED-E), possibly resulting in the player character taking damage as well. Only the companions will take damage from rigged shotguns (unless one is in between) and bear traps. Other traps, such as explosive baby carriages, still go off if approached, and grenade bouquets triggered by a floor trap will still go off by making contact with the grenades, or by shooting them.

Floor-based traps include:

Note that mines have a high value to weight ratio. With this perk, they can be harvested for resale with no difficulty, making this one of the more profitable perks to have.
