Bloody Mess (perk)/Fallout: New Vegas
Bloody Mess (perk)
|For the trait, see Bloody Mess (trait).|
With the Bloody Mess perk, characters and creatures you kill will often explode into a red, gut-ridden, eyeball-strewn paste. Fun! Oh, and you'll do 5% more damage with all weapons.”— In-game description, Fallout 3
Bloody Mess increases the damage dealt with any weapon by 5%. More notably, this perk increases the chance of dismemberment, regardless of the hit location. This can render some quests more difficult to complete due to the necessity of precise wounds:
- The quest Three-Card Bounty in Fallout: New Vegas is somewhat harder to complete for full credit since the violent death animations may not leave a fully intact head on the marks' bodies, therefore forfeiting the bonus.
Behind the scenes
- In the German versions of Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, which are free of all blood and physical sundering, there is no change in the battle and death animations. In New Vegas, however, animals (except nightstalkers) can be dismembered using Bloody Mess.
