Fallout: New Vegas
You can see the HP and DT of any characters, creatures and robots and you gain +5% damage against humans and non-feral ghouls.
- Targets with "long" names (such as "Brotherhood of Steel Paladin") may extend two lines when targeted, and thus push the HP and DT down past the edge of the screen, making the numbers unreadable.
- The perk tracks overkill damage, so targets can display negative HP.
- The first effect is similar to the Awareness perk of Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics.
