Superior Defender is a perk in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.


When the player character is standing or crouching in place, it adds +5 points of damage to weapons and +10 points to Damage Resistance. The benefits are reported in the Pip-Boy under the "Effects" screen.

The +5 damage is added to each bullet, making it far more powerful when used with automatic weapons, especially with the Minigun or the Gatling Laser, and their variants. The Minigun will have its damage almost tripled.

Behind the scenes

The icon resembles a Greek Hoplite.


  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Because the player must be standing still to use the Pip-Boy, the +5 damage effect and DR bonus appears to be constantly in effect unless the player is in the air. The bonus is applied correctly, however. It is purely a visual bug.
