The Pathfinder is better able to find the shortest route. With this Perk, your travel time on the world map is reduced by 25% for each level.— in-game description, Fallout

Pathfinder is a perk in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 2d20 and Fallout Tactics.

Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics


With each level of this perk, your travel time on the world map and the drain on the Highwayman's battery is reduced by 25%. This is the in-game time that is lowered, and not the actual time to travel between towns. Your actual speed on the map will not decrease.


The Fallout 2 manual erroneously states that the Outdoorsman requirement is 60%.

Fallout 2d20

When travelling over long distances through the wilderness, a successful PER + Survival test (with a difficulty determined by the GM, based on the terrain) reduces the travel time by half.Fallout 2d20 Rulebook p.69
