Hey early risers! Enjoy a +2 to each of your SPECIAL attributes from 6 am to 12 pm, but suffer -1 from 6 pm to 6 am when you're not at your best.

— In-game description, Fallout: New Vegas

Early Bird is a trait in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


From 6 AM to 12 PM, you gain +2 to all SPECIAL stats but from 6PM to 6AM, you suffer -1 to all SPECIAL stats.


  • It is somewhat mitigated by the Night Person perk (resulting in a +1 INT and PER at night)
  • It synergizes extremely well with Solar Powered for it's +2 Strength effect while in sunlight).
