As an agent of death, you can instantly kill a sleeping person. Your silenced weapons do an additional 15% sneak attack damage.— Rank 1 description

Mister Sandman is a perk in Fallout 4.

Effects

Increased damage from silenced weapons.

The perk is activated the same as in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas: While in sneak mode you are given the option to either pickpocket or Sandman kill. After selecting Sandman kill, a short killing animation follows. Unlike Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, no XP is awarded.

Notes

  • Damage bonus works only on weapons with a silencer mod installed, making it generally useless for weapons without that option, like energy or melee weapons.
  • It is not possible to perform Mister Sandman kills while wearing power armor.
  • No experience points are awarded for kills using Mister Sandman.
  • As of patch 1.4, the bonus damage stacks additively with the Ninja perk. With both perks fully leveled you get a 4.0x sneak attack multiplier. However, some small multiplicative variances may occur when adding Cloak & Dagger into the mix; see the Bugs section below for more details.

Behind the scenes

The name of the perk is in reference to The Chordettes 1954 song "Mr. Sandman". While the perk has existed since Fallout 3, the song itself did not appear in any released game until Fallout 76.
