Pyromaniac is a perk in Fallout 3.

Effects

With the Pyromaniac perk, you do +50% damage with fire-based weapons, like flamers and Shishkebabs. This only increases the base damage done by these weapons, not the lingering "burn" effect.

Affected weapons

Bugs

  • PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 The Burnmaster, the Nuka-grenade, and the Zhu-Rong v418 Chinese pistol are unaffected by the perk. The guide lists these as being affected by this perk, but the weapons aren't on the form list - this is most likely an oversight by the developers. [verified]
  • PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 Any flamers that are brought back by the Gary-23 glitch from Operation: Anchorage are also unaffected. The reason for this was probably because weapons from the expansion were not meant to be brought back, thus they are not affected by this perk. [verified]
