Change one trait for another
“ The radiation of the wasteland has changed you! One of your traits has mutated into something else... ” — In-game description
Mutate! is a , Fallout and Fallout 2 Fallout Tactics perk.
Allows swapping a trait for another.
In unpatched Fallout, Gifted could be swapped for another trait while keeping the Character Points.
While minimally useful in Fallout and Fallout 2, Mutate! is a reasonable perk in Fallout Tactics, where it can be used to remove unfavored traits from NPC squad members.
If a character has only one trait, it alone must be exchanged for a new one. The empty slot cannot be filled.
Averted in Fallout Tactics, Mutate! can be used to give traits to NPC party members who have none already.
Behind the scenes Edit
The image for this perk is a reference to Marvel Comics' Dr. Bruce Banner/The Hulk. The image of the split personality always appeared at the end of the introscene during the
television series, which ran from 1978 until 1982.
