With Swing For The Fences you'll do an additional 10 points of damage while any one or two handed melee weapon is equipped.— In-game description

Swing for the Fences is a perk found in the data files of the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout. It does not appear in the game and can only be obtained with console commands.


It grants a bonus damage of 10 with all melee weapons.


  • Presumably, this perk may have been what Desmond Lockheart was talking about when he said he could offer you "more training". It just wasn't properly implemented like Superior Defender was.
  • Even though the perk affects Melee damage, the icon shows Vault Boy fighting unarmed.
