Reduces poison damage by this amount.Fallout game description

Poison Resistance is derived statistic in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout Tactics.

This statistic reduces poison damage by a percentage as well as the chance to get poisoned. In Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, this statistic is hidden.

Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout TacticsEdit

$ \text{Initial Level}=\text{Endurance}\times5 $

Fallout 3Edit

Poison Resistance is also present in Fallout 3. It has a much smaller part than in the previous games since only a few enemies (Radscorpions chief among them) use poison, and poison effects tend to be weak.

$ \text{Initial Level} \%=(\text{Endurance}-1)\times5 $

Example: A starting Endurance of 5.

$ (5-1)\times5=20\%~\text{Poison resistance} $
  • The Cyborg perk can increase resistance by +10%.
  • The Survival Expert perk can add between an additional +2% to +6%.

Fallout: New VegasEdit

Fallout: New Vegas uses the same equation as Fallout 3, but Poison Resistance has much more use: there are cazadores, bark scorpions, night stalkers, and weapon poisons, all in addition to radscorpions. In Lonesome Road, there are also venomous tunnelers. Moreover, poison in Fallout: New Vegas is generally much more lethal.

Players can modify their own Poison Resistance in the same manner as other resistances, through armor, perk cards, or consumables. Poison damage comes from a small variety of enemies and weapons, such as the scorchbeast queen and Bug grenade.
