Pyromaniac is a Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout Tactics as well as Lionheart perk. It is a skill Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel and was to appear in the canceled Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2 (skills in these game work like perks do in other Fallout games).
Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics
“This Perk will make your character do horrible things with fire — to other people. +5 points of damage with fire-based weapons.”— In-game description
In Fallout 2, the most violent fire-based death animation will always be used, similar to that of the Bloody Mess trait.
With the Pyromaniac perk, you do +50% damage with fire-based weapons, like flamers and Shishkebabs. This only increases the base damage done by these weapons, not the lingering "burn" effect.
Fallout: New Vegas
“With the Pyromaniac perk, you do +50% damage with fire-based weapons, like the Flamer and Shishkebab.”— In-game description
With the Pyromaniac perk, you do +50% damage with fire-based weapons, like the flamer and Shishkebab.
Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel
Each level of this skill increases the player characters Critical Chance for +5% (up to a maximum +25) when using fire-based weapons. To take it, the player must be Level 5.
- 1 Rank : 2 Points
- 2 Rank : 4 Points
- 3 Rank : 8 Points
- 4 Rank : 16 Points
- 5 Rank : 32 Points
Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2
Unspecified, but presumably 5%, increase in Critical Chance when using fire-based weapons.
You have a natural affinity for fire and a knack for setting things ablaze - especially other people. You get +10% damage with fire-based weapons or spells.
