Lone Wanderer [Perk]

Lone Wanderer is a perk in Fallout 4. Manipulate others when playing alone, and send residents out to gather additional resources.


  • Who needs friends, anyway? When adventuring without a companion, you take 15% less damage and carry weight increases by 50.
  • When adventuring without a companion, you take 30% less damage and carry weight increases by 100.
  • When adventuring without a companion, you do 25% more damage.


This perk is for those who like to play without any companions, but who also don’t mind treading on a few people along the way. Note that during at least one of Brian Delaney’s interviews, he mentions our ability to lie during dialogue, which I believe is a direct reference to the Lone Wanderer perk. The available dialogue options will ensure that you frequently get your own way, but don’t expect to build any lasting relationships in the process!

The additional feature of being able to send one resident per settlement to gather resources will also ensure that you accumulate a great many new items and bottle caps without getting your hands dirty. If all 12 settlements are being utilised, that’s a lot of additional items and caps. Make sure of course to apropriately equip any residents you send out into the wastes, which will mean giving them suitable weapons and armor, as well as stimpaks and radaway. Note that this feature is available even if you have companions, but the dialogue options are only available if playing solo.
