Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Red Scare is a Van Buren trait. It hasn't appeared in any published SPECIAL game as a trait.


You are paranoid in the extreme and think that everyone around you may be trying to do you in. Your effective PE is +2 for purposes of determining sight range, but your shaky nerves in combat give you a -5 penalty to hit.


  • With the release of the Lonesome Road add-on, while equipping the riot gear helmet it gives the effect "Red Scare", which gives the wearer a benefit for low visibility sight while in sneak mode between 6:00PM to 6:00AM or while indoors. This will toggle from on to off once exiting sneak mode.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The First and Second Red Scares were anti-communist hysteria that occurred in the United States of America in 1919-1921 and 1947-1957.
