Stonewall is a perk in Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas, and Fallout Tactics.

Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics

You are much less likely to be knocked down in combat.

Fallout: New Vegas

You gain +5 to your Damage Threshold against all Melee Weapons and Unarmed attacks, and you cannot be knocked down by any means in melee combat (explosives can still knock you down).


This is useful against deathclaws, since they only use unarmed and they have a chance of knocking the player down. The perk is also useful against Legate Lanius because he only uses melee and also has a high knockdown chance.

Behind the scenes

The picture used for the perk in Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics is a reference to The Thing, a member of the Marvel Comics superhero team The Fantastic Four.

However, the added DT will correctly only apply against melee or unarmed attacks, regardless of what you have equipped. [verified]
