Radroach meat is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The meat is the severed abdomen of a radroach, it restores a small amount of hit points, and gives a high dose of radiation. Consuming it also gives a -1 penalty to Strength.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Since radroaches appear less frequently Fallout: New Vegas than in Fallout 3, radroach meat is increasingly difficult to find.

  • A piece of meat can be found on the corpse of all radroaches
  • Genaro in Westside sells radroach meat.
  • Radroach meat can be found on feral ghouls occasionally.

Notes[edit | edit source]
