Perks: Level 6
Bloody Mess (1 Rank)

With the bloody mess perk, characters and creatuers you kill often explode into a red, gut-ridden, eyeball-strewn paste. Fun! Oh, and you do 5% extra damage with all weapons.

Our grade: B. An extra 5% damage is always nice and you can't go wrong with a little extra violence.

Demolition Expert (3 Ranks)

With each rank of this perk, all of your explosive weapons do an additional 20% damage. Requires 50 points in Explosives.

Our grade: B. This perk is useful if you're going to specialize in grenades and mines; otherwise you should skip it.

Fortune Finder (1 Rank)

With the fortune finder perk, you uncover considerably more Nuka-Cola caps in containers than you normally would. Requires LU 5.

Our grade: D. You shouldn't have a whole lot of trouble accumulating money in the game.

Gunslinger (1 Rank)

When using a pistol or a similar one-handed weapon, your accuracy in V.A.T.S. increases significantly.

Our grade: B. Even if you concentrate on ranged attacks, you'll probably use rifles more than pistols.

Lead Belly (1 Rank)

With the lead belly perk, you take 50% less radiation damage every time you drink from an irradiated water source. Requires EN 5.

Our grade: F. Unless it's an emergency, there's little reason to drink from irradiated water sources.

Toughness (1 Rank)

With this perk, you gain +10% to overall damage resistance, up to a maximum of 85%. Requires EN 5.

Our grade: A-. The more damage resistance, the merrier.
