Tank Killer is a perk in Fallout 76, and a perk in the Nuclear Winter battle royale mode.


Tank Killer reduces the physical Damage Resistance of your target and adds a chance to stagger the target. However, it does not change the target's energy, radiation, or poison resistances.

  • If an Anti-Armor weapon is equipped, the perk's armor reduction bonus is halved.
  • In Adventure & Survival it only affects non automatic rifles: include keyword WeaponTypeRifle; exclude keywords WeaponTypeHeavyGun, WeaponTypeShotgun, WeaponTypeAutomatic)
  • In Nuclear Winter there is a new perk Babylon_TankKiller03 "Tank Killer" [PERK:00479B5D] which does not exclude WeaponTypeAutomatic so works with manual, semi and full auto rifles.
