— In-game description, Fallout: New Vegas

Hunter is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas.


In combat, you do 75% more damage upon a critical hit against animals and mutated animals. This perk will not affect abominations or mutated insects. It only affects creatures in the animal and mutated animal categories.

Creatures affected

This includes all varieties of the above, such as golden geckos, pack brahmin, or Legion mongrels. Note that nightstalkers are not a type of coyote and are abominations, so they are not affected by this perk.
