Quick Draw is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout: The Roleplaying Game.

Fallout: New Vegas

Quick Draw makes all of your weapon equipping and holstering 50% faster.

Fallout: the Roleplaying Game

Once a turn, draw a single weapon or item carried on your person without using a minor action.


  • The usefulness of this perk is debatable depending on play style, as someone who does not care about the movement penalty of having a weapon drawn will probably rarely holster/switch weapons.
  • Switching weapons automatically reloads your previous weapon, potentially eliminating the need to reload entirely (though this may be considered an exploit).
  • Weapons associated with the Cowboy perk all hold few rounds and have long reload times, potentially making weapon switching a more viable tactic than reloading the same weapon.
  • In Fallout: The Roleplaying Game, the Vault Boy is based on the Quick Pockets perk from Fallout and Fallout 2.

  • Icon pc.png Icon ps3.png Icon xbox360.png When drawing a one handed weapon (gun), a glitch may occur where the player character will actually draw the weapon from their holster twice. [verified]
  • Icon pc.png Icon xbox360.png When holstering the weapon while moving, the gun will be inside the player character when you view from behind. Simply unholster and reholster the weapon while not moving to fix it. [verified]
