Fight the Power! is a perk in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.


You've had enough of these so-called "authorities" pushing poor folks around! You gain +2 Damage Threshold and +5% critical chance against anyone wearing the faction armor of the NCR, Legion, or Brotherhood.


  • Only a non-player character wearing NCR/Legion/BoS armor will trigger this perk. For example, if you change a Legion non-player character's armor to a piece of non-faction armor, this perk will not function.
  • Although players who avoid confrontation with the major factions won't find much use for this perk for the majority of the game, it can be put to great use during the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, where literally every single character except any Securitrons and the Enclave Remnants is affected by it. It also comes in handy for players who choose to destroy the Hidden Valley bunker, although it should be noted that it will not have any effect on the Brotherhood members wearing recon armor.
  • The Vault Boy image for this perk resembles the image for the Legion Assault perk.
