Fallout 76 Leak Reveals New Perks On The Way

Fallout 76

The Fallout 76 Break-it-Early-Test-Application (B.E.T.A.) has officially made it to all available platforms, and despite a few hiccups, players who have access are seemingly enjoying their time in the wasteland. That said, a datamining operation was recently carried out on the PC version of the title, and it has potentially revealed even more perks that will be featured in the upcoming adventure.

Redditor ConfidenceCat recently took to the popular website to share the list of perks that were uncovered in the datamine. One that pops out is the “Mysterious Stranger” perk, which allows an outside character to join the fight to assist you. In previous entries in the franchise, this brought in an NPC. Without these characters, however, it will be interesting to see how the perk is incorporated into Fallout 76. According to the leak, Mysterious Stranger will be a Luck perk.

Mysterious Stranger

  1. The Mysterious Stranger will appear occasionally in V.A.T.S. to lend a hand.
  2. The Mysterious Stranger appears more often when using V.A.T.S.
  3. The Mysterious Stranger appears so much in V.A.T.S., he knows you by name.

Many of the perks are making a return in Fallout 76, but it’s important to note that this is all rumored at this time. Keep the salt handy, as we won’t know if any of these are officially coming to the game until Bethesda states as such. Either way, here are a few others that are possibly on their way:


  1. Make your target receive 5% more damage for 5 seconds after you attack.
  2. Make your target receive 6% more damage for 7 seconds after you attack.
  3. Make your target receive 7% more damage for 10 seconds after you attack.

Wasteland Whisperer

  1. Aim your gun at a creature below your level for a 50% chance to pacify it.
  2. Aim your gun at a creature below your level for a 75% chance to pacify it.

Fireproof Endurance

  1. Immediately gain +20 Fire Resistance.
  2. Immediately gain +40 Fire Resistance.
  3. Immediately gain +60 Fire Resistance.

Thunder Thighs

  1. Sprinting in Power Armor consumes half as much Fusion Core energy.
  2. Sprinting in Power Armor consumes no extra Fusion Core energy.

I’m Cured!

  1. Your chance to successfully cure any disease is improved by 25%.
  2. Your chance to successfully cure any disease is improved by 50%.
  3. Your chance to successfully cure any disease is improved by 75%.
  4. Your chance to successfully cure any disease is doubled.
