Eye for Eye is a perk in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.


Each crippled limb the player sustains increases damage by 10%. The perk works well with the Small Frame trait, but is largely limited by Old World Blues perks such as Brainless, Big Brained and Spineless.


  • The chances of Eye for Eye triggering will be increads by the Small Frame trait due to the increased damage to player body parts.
  • Brainless, Big Brained and Spineless, the perks from Old World Blues, will decrease this trait's efficiency drastically.
  • The combat drug Steady can completely offset the sway and drop in accuracy from having crippled arms.

Behind the scenes

  • The name is a reference to Code of Hammurabi, more specifically, the lex talionis which mandated that injuries caused by an assailant be incurred on them. An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth.
