The lucky shades are a unique piece of eyewear in Fallout: New Vegas.


The lucky shades provide no Damage Threshold, but do provide a bonus of +1 to Luck. They can be repaired with other glasses, including sunglasses.


Found inside the Caesar's Legion safehouse, on a bed with a suit of Legion praetorian armor, a displacer glove and two time bombs.


  • The lucky shades were added to the game by patch 1.2. Prior to this patch, they existed within the game's files, but were not placed anywhere in the game and also lacked the effect which increased the wearer's Luck.
  • This is one of the few clothing items that increase the Luck SPECIAL stat, the others being naughty nightwear and the independent variant of the Courier duster.
  • While these shades give +3 Perception with the Four Eyes trait, they do not offer +3 Perception without Four Eyes. If Four Eyes is not selected, the lucky shades only affect Luck.
