Tank Killer reduces the physical and energy 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.

- 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 18.104.22.168, 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.
patch 22.214.171.124, the Adventure mode variant of Tank Killer 3 will not provide the 9% stagger chance for semi-automatic pistols, as it is missing the WeaponTypePistol keyword required to apply the stagger to that weapon type. The keyword is present for the 3% stagger rate for automatic pistols and will work as expected for automatic pistols as such.[verified]As of
