Hey early risers! Enjoy a +2 to each of your SPECIAL attributes from 6 am to 12 pm, but suffer -1 from 6 pm to 6 am when you're not at your best.— In-game description

Early Bird is a trait in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


From 6AM to 12PM, you gain +2 to all SPECIAL stats but from 6PM to 6AM, you suffer -1 to all SPECIAL stats. It is somewhat mitigated by the Night Person perk (resulting in a +1 INT and PER at night), and synergizes extremely well with Solar Powered (+2 Strength while in sunlight).


  • Combined with Claustrophobia, being outside from 6AM to 12PM increase each SPECIAL stat by +3, while being inside from 6PM to 6AM reduces each SPECIAL stat by -2.
  • Outside of Hardcore Mode, keeping the +2 SPECIAL stat bonuses active is trivially easy, as one can wait until morning in most locations without penalty.

Behind the scenes

This trait is a modification of Night Person, which appears in Fallout and Fallout Tactics, and became a perk in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
