Just when your enemies think they have the upper hand, Miss Fortune appears to turn their world upside down. Appearing only in V.A.T.S., she has the ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

— In-game description, Fallout: New Vegas

Miss Fortune is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas.


With this perk, Miss Fortune will appear 10% of the time in V.A.T.S. to attack enemies. To trigger an appearance, the player must complete a series of attacks in V.A.T.S. without killing their opponent.

Unlike the Mysterious Stranger, Miss Fortune's attacks deal low damage to an area, aiming to cripple and knockdown enemies rather than kill them outright. Miss Fortune's Bad Luck Bringer triggers the game to create a "fortune" percentage for your target.

If their fortune is less than 35:

If their fortune is between 35 and 65:

If their fortune is above 65, only the limb crippling is applied. Remember, this is all determined per shot, and Miss Fortune will more than likely empty her revolver for all 6 shots in a V.A.T.S. attack!


  • The Mysterious Stranger perk is functionally similar but triggers less frequently.
  • Both the Miss Fortune and Mysterious Stranger perks can be chosen by the player, but they cannot appear together in the same V.A.T.S. sequence as they share the same trigger.


  • Sometimes when she appears, your AP Sequence will continue even after delivering your attack, leaving you unable to defend yourself.
