|The following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
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.
"Red Scare" is also an effect in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road, active while equipping the riot gear helmet. It 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 from 1919-1921 and 1947-1957.
