Hand of Vengeance is a companion perk in Fallout: New Vegas.


It is acquired by completing Heartache by the Number the violent way. This is done by killing Alice McLafferty and Gloria Van Graff instead of obtaining evidence against them in order to have the NCR justice system deal with them. Rose of Sharon Cassidy gains 15% more damage with Guns.


  • Synergizes well with 10 Charisma due to companion nerve (+15% becomes +65%).
  • Hand of Vengeance does not have a Vault boy image, even in the G.E.C.K.
  • It is possible to gain both this and the Calm Heart perk, by collecting and turning in the evidence against the two targets, and then going back and killing them.
