What goes around comes around!

Ricochet is a perk in Fallout 4, Fallout 76 and the Fallout: The Board Game expansion Fallout: New California.

Fallout 4[edit | edit source]

Effects[edit | edit source]

Rank Requirements Description Base ID
1 LCK 10 What goes around comes around! Any enemy's ranged attacks will sometimes ricochet back and instantly kill them. The closer you are to death, the higher the chance. 001D247C
2 LCK 10, LVL 29 There's an increased chance that an enemy's shot will ricochet back and kill them. 001D247D
3 LCK 10, LVL 50 When an enemy's shot ricochets back and kills them, there is a chance your Critical meter gets filled. 001D247E

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • At rank 1, the chance is 1% for automatics and 5% for non-automatics. At rank 2, this becomes 2% for automatics and 7% for non-automatics.
  • It can also Ricochet fire from friendly targets like settlers, so being in a settler's line of fire could prove detrimental to the settlers.
  • The enemy needs to either have a maximum of 100 HP or be at 40% or less of their maximum HP.[citation needed]

Fallout: The Board Game[edit | edit source]

Canonbox default.pngThe following is based on content from Fallout: New California and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Ricochet is added to the board game with the Fallout: New California expansion. After killing an enemy in combat, the player character can discard this perk card to kill a second enemy within three spaces of the first one.
