Bloody Mess (perk)/Fallout 3
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 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
- 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.
