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 is a perk in Fallout 3.

Effects[edit | edit source]

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 You Gotta Shoot 'Em in the Head in Fallout 3 can be harder to complete with this perk, since head shots may not count as such if other limbs are also blown off by the shot.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
