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

Effects

Tank Killer reduces the physical and energy[1] Damage Resistance of your target and adds a chance to stagger the target. However, it does not change the target's radiation, poison, frost or fire resistances.

Notes

  • For automatic rifles and pistols, the stagger chance is 1/3 of the stated value on the perk card; i.e. with Tank Killer 1, the perk card states a stagger rate of 3%, which is true for semi-automatic rifles and pistols. For automatic rifles and pistols, the stagger rate is 1%.
  • Due to armor penetration being multiplicative, stacking Tank Killer with Anti-Armor or certain weapon mods will result in diminishing returns.
  • As of patch 1.4.0.20, the Adventure mode variant of the perk applies to pistols as well as rifles.
  • Although the perk card art for Tank Killer depicts a R91 assault rifle, this weapon is not available in the game.

The keyword is present for the 3% stagger rate for automatic pistols and will work as expected for automatic pistols as such.[verified]
