Fallout 3

Animal Friend is a Fallout and Fallout 3 Perk.



With this perk, Animals will not attack the PC, unless the animal is threatened or attacked first.

Deathclaws are not classified as animals for the purposes this perk. Neither are any variety of Mirelurk nor any variety of arthropod - giant ants, radscorpions, bloatflies, etc.

Fallout 3

After the player acquires first rank of this perk, animals simply won’t attack the PC. After acquiring the second rank, these creatures will come to the PC's aid in combat, but never against another animal. This perk affects Vicious Dog, Yao Guai, Mole Rat and Mad Brahmin.



  • Having this will make your trip to find the Sneak Bobblehead much more leisurely and significantly easier
  • Animals will attack any other non-animals anyway (Insects, Raiders, Etc.) with or without the perk.

Additional Dialog

  • With this perk, a dialogue option becomes available when speaking to Tree Father Birch in Oasis. He will then explain why there are no animals in oasis. There appears to be no other benefit.
