You left ED-E behind in Ulysses' Temple - not that you needed the help anyways. As long as you have no companions, your attacks inflict +10% damage and you have +10% accuracy in VATS.— In-game description

Lonesome Road is a perk in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.


Leave ED-E in the Maintenance and Storage area before entering Ulysses' Temple.


Without companions, this perk grants a 10% increase in both the damage done by the Courier and chances to hit in V.A.T.S. To use this perk, companions must be dismissed; telling them to wait will not grant the perk's bonuses.


This perk cannot be obtained if the quest The End is completed.

Behind the scenes

The representation of the Lonesome Road perk is a reference to the Vault Dweller ending in Fallout, the Lone Wanderer ending in Fallout 3 and the Courier ending in Fallout: New Vegas, where the three are shown walking away, with their back turned and showing the number of the Vault jumpsuit they wear. In the Fallout 3 ending, the Lone Wanderer is shown with Dogmeat, while in Fallout and Fallout: New Vegas, the character is shown alone.
