A New Vegas like hardcore mode is currently released on PC.

Changing difficulties changes damage, resistance of enemies and appearing rate of Legendary Enemies. Legendary Enemies are harder and they have a chance of dropping a Legendary Weapon or Legendary Armor with unique characteristics like better critic chance or that refills AP when doing a critic.

The well known damage table for different difficulty settings:

  • The difference between Very Hard and Survival is that Stimpaks's recovery speed is lowered in the latter mode. Also it seems that in Survival, it is more likely that you encounter a Legendary Enemy.
