Anthrax is an acute bacterial disease stored in the Sierra Army Depot in Fallout 2. It is a weaponized version of the Bacillus anthracis triggering the disease.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Anthrax itself is an acute disease caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis. Most forms of the disease are lethal, and it affects both humans and other animals.

Like many other members of the genus Bacillus, Anthrax can form dormant endospores that are able to survive in harsh conditions for decades or even centuries. When the spores are inhaled, ingested, or come into contact with a skin lesion on a host they may reactivate and multiply rapidly.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Anthrax appears in Fallout 2.
