Fortune Finder is a Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3 and Lionheart perk and a Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel skill (skills in this game work like perks do in other Fallout games).


Fallout, Fallout 2, Lionheart

You have the talent of finding money. You will find additional money in random encounters in the desert.

Fallout 3

With the Fortune Finder perk, you'll find considerably more Nuka-Cola caps in containers than you normally would. It adds 110-190 extra caps to most places where Bottle caps can be found.

NOTE: The usefulness of this perk is negligible. Players with especially high skills in Repair can easily amass significant wealth early in the game, simply by repairing unwanted weapons and armor loot and selling them for profit. (This works especially well with the various Raider armors, which are plentiful in Springvale School and Super-Duper Mart.) Even players desperate for cash can, if nothing else, pick up and sell everything that isn't nailed down. By at least mid-game, most players should have access to at least several reliable means of income, such as Scrap Metal trading or Murphy's Bombing Run (with successful Speech check).

Without investing in this perk, players can very easily find themselves the richest man or woman in the Wasteland, with very little worth spending their already impressive amount of caps on. Consider Scrounger at level 8 instead; the payoff is arguably more practical, and unwanted ammunition can always be sold for caps if necessary.
