While Sneaking, if you hit a critter in the back, you will cause double damage using a hand-to-hand attack. Silent Death is that kind of Perk.

Fallout 2 description

Silent Death is a perk in Fallout Tactics.

Effect

+100% if the player attacks a critter in the back while Sneak is active. As the perk only affects the initial attack and only applies to hand-to-hand attacks, the perk is functionally useless (especially since Slayer supersedes its effect). Backstab is its equivalent in Lionheart, while all games past Fallout Tactics removed it in favor of sneak attack criticals.
