Guns or Melee Weapons tagged

Stealth and discretion come second nature to you, but due to your... suspicious demeanor, people really lock onto you as soon as you've been spotted. You gain +10 Sneak, +8% run speed, and +8% AP while sneaking and undetected, but you suffer an inverse penalty to those stats while detected.

Scientific Method(Trait)
Req: INT 7+, PER 3+,

Science and Energy Weapons tagged

Your dedication to science is admirable, if bordering on obsessive. Standing in front of monitors and taking samples from irradiated puddles has started to take its toll, but it's all in the name of progress. You've gained +2 INT and +20 Science, but you've lost -2 PER and -10 Radiation Resistance, and you've become obsessed with using nothing but the most advanced of weapons.

Trader's Touch(Trait)
Req: CHA 7+, INT 5+,

Speech and Barter tagged

Your understanding of the markets is second-to-none, and you intend to prove it to the entire Mojave. You've gained +20 Barter, +10 Speech, and +2 Charisma. However, your brahmin is long gone, and your caravan's bad luck with raiders has persisted; You suffer -30 AP and Carry Weight, as well as -2 Luck. While you hold more than 10k caps, you also gain +15% XP.

Outcome Based Perks:
These perks become available after the completion of their relevant DLC. They will be hidden and invisible until such time.

Dead Money:
Elijah's Montresor

Survivor's Guilt
Req: Lvl 20, one of the companions died during the DLC.
You survived the hell that was the Sierra Madre, but after all of the deaths you've seen, you feel as though a piece of you has been left behind there forever. Your Luck is reduced by 1 when you have a teammate, but your AP regenerates 15% faster, and AP costs are reduced by 5%.

The Ties That Bind
Req: Lvl 20, every companion survived the DLC.
Elijah's collars may have brought you together initially, but it's the bonds you made that will keep them in your heart. As long as you have at least one teammate, you ignore 4 points of enemy DT, gain an additional 4 points yourself, and have a 4% increased critical hit chance.

Honest Hearts (These ones require that you have the Scripture item in your inventory):
Exodus Of The Faithul
Req: Lvl 12, evacuate from Zion Canyon
"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." - Psalm 23:4

And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." - Revelation 6:8
So long as you have your Bible, you are 5% more likely to critically hit, and deal +10% critical damage.

Old World Blues:
Mobius Strip
Req: Lvl 25, kill the Think Tank and leave Mobius alone.
After experiencing the delirium of the Think Tank first-"hand", it seemed only natural to side with Mobius, and you ended their deranged experiments once and for all. Now, for every 10 points of Science above 50, you regen 5% more AP, and your AP costs are reduced by 5% as well.

Klein Bottle
Req: Lvl 25, kill Mobius and leave the Think Tank alone.
While the Think Tank may be unreliable and chaotic, they're at least well intentioned. Mobius was clearly the aggressor, so you've taken him out of the equation. Now, when using mad science weapons, you attack 15% faster, and their strength requirements are lowered by 1.

Scientific Consensus

Against all odds, you've managed to balance the Big Mountain equation. The Big Empty isn't so empty with all these scientists floating around! Your Energy Weapons deal 10% more damage, have reduced spread, and you've gained +10 Science while hacking.

Lonesome Road:

Req: Lvl 30, save ED-E
With a loyal eyebot by your side, you've survived the ravages of The Divide. You've even learned from it's example! You can carry an additional 30 lbs., your chance to set off mines is reduced, and your equipment decays at a 15% slower rate.

The Final Delivery

Ulysses was right about something: One person's decisions can irrevocably change history. While you wear your Courier Duster, you gain a 8% chance to knock opponents down in combat. You gain an additional 3% for carrying 3/6/9 Mini Nukes, up to a maximum of 17.

A Mended Divide
Req: Lvl 30, save Ulysses
Ulysses once faced you down with malice, from across a deep divide, but you've found common ground and a mutual understanding. While wearing your Courier Duster, you have 20% increased carry weight, and 15% better accuracy in VATS.

You can turn on and off the Big Guns perks in the config ini at any time. Turning them off mid game will


remove any of the perks if you've already taken them.

Patch for Quicksilver's Supplementary Pack availablehere

Compatible with TTW 3.2.2and3.3!

Many of these perks use new formlists for weapon types in certain themes. As such, any new mod added weapons won't automatically be compatible. I intend to patch every weapon mod on the Nexus that I like into these formlists eventually. In the meantime, if you've got a weapon mod that suits these categories, ask me, and if I like the asset quality enough for the mod, I'll make a patch/editor's cut plugin in the meanwhile.

Compatibility extra details:



I don't want to make the Big Guns exclusive perks use other skills. They're just going to be hidden if you leave them turned off.

Five AcesbyOllyoxen - Original idea for the Bolt-Action Hero perk. I did this one a little different than theirs.
bigcman123 for the Vault Girl face icon used in the promo image.
ItsMeJesusHChrist for the upscaled icons used in the promo image, a handful of directly used modders' resource images, and all of the initial source images that I edited to make the new perk icons.
More Perks inspired most of the V5 perks.
