|Effects||+100 Sneak, +75 Stealth Field|
The Stealth Boy is a device that you can equip on your wrist to boost your sneak skill. Supposedly, (as said by RobCo) the device manipulates the light around it and makes the wearer nearly invisible.
Stealth Boys can be used in a lot of situations. You might put one on when you're attempting to pickpocket an NPC, sneaking past enemies, or trying landing a successful sneak critical on an enemy.
The device boosts ones sneak skill to the maximum level, but wears off after an hour (in game time). These should not be wasted because there is a limited number in the Wastes.
- A lot of quest give you a Stealth Boy as a reward, like The Wasteland Survival Guide.
