Mutant cave fungus is a consumable found in Old World Blues that is also an ingredient in several items.


Regular cave fungus is a potent healing agent that is an integral component of many survival recipes found in the wasteland. Its mutated cousin has been changed by the unique environment of Big MT, capable of reacting with certain rare ingredients to create items such as the black blood sausages, battle brew, thick red paste, or nightstalker squeezin's. It has a distinct green glow to help identify it.
