SCAV! is a perk in the Fallout 4 add-on Nuka-World. It has 5 ranks, each received by reading 5 different issues of SCAV! magazines.


Issue Number Title Perk Granted Perk Effect Base ID
#1 The Terrible Truce SCAV! - Villainous Virtuosity Increases speech challenge success chance. xx02A9F8
#2 Fear the Knife King SCAV! - Bladed Bravado +25% combat knife and switchblade damage. xx02A9F9
#3 Mutant Fists of Stephie Knuckles SCAV! - Pugilistic Propensities +10% hand to hand weapon damage. xx02A9FA
#4 Nuka Brahmin Stampede! SCAV! - Cautionary Crafts +5% explosives damage. xx02A9FB
#5 That No-Caps Rage SCAV! - Motivationally Moneyless +1 Strength & +1 Endurance if you have <= 10,000 caps
+2 Strength and +2 Endurance if you have <= 1,000 caps.
+3 Strength & +3 Endurance if you have <= 100 caps.


  • The effect of "SCAV! - Motivationally Moneyless" is constant, so the Strength and Endurance will update as the Sole Survivor gains or loses caps.
  • The perk description for Bladed Bravado is misleading; the damage bonus applies to all "one-handed" bladed weapons, not just "knives."
  • The perk Bladed Bravado also increases damage for knuckles.
  • The word SCAV is misspelled in the perk icon, with a "k" instead of a "c."
