  • 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."
