Master Trader is a Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout Tactics, Fallout: The Board Game, and Lionheart perk.


Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout TacticsEdit

You have mastered one aspect of bartering - the ability to buy goods far cheaper than a normal person. With this Perk, you get a 25% discount when purchasing items from a store or another trader.


The Fallout 2 manual incorrectly states that this perk makes the player character's items more valuable, and that the Barter requirement is 60%.

Fallout 3Edit

With this perk, the price of every item you buy from a vendor is reduced by 25%.


  • Allows for expanded dialogue options when discussing business arrangements outside of the barter system. Especially applicable when speaking with Uncle Roe of Canterbury Commons, see Merchant Empire for details.
  • This perk only affects purchases, one's own sold items' price are not affected by this perk.
  • If the 25% discounted price is below base price, the list price will be the base price.
  • Once this perk and the 60 Barter necessary for it are obtained, most vendors will already be selling their items at the lowest cost (Base Value).

Fallout: The Board GameEdit
