Benefit Or a Hazard is a one-star (★) challenge added in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.


To complete it, you must kill 15 robots with a 5.56mm pistol.


Behind the scenes

  • This challenge is a cultural reference to Ridley Scott's Blade Runner (the silver screen adaption of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick). Specifically, the name refers to Rick Deckard's statement given to Rachel: "Replicants are like any other machine - they're either a benefit or a hazard. If they're a benefit, it's not my problem.", while the challenge itself mimics Deckard's (whose pistol the 5.56mm was designed after) actions during the film.
