Stimpak, or stimulation delivery package, is a type of hand-held medication used for boosting the body's own regenerative properties.[1] This consumable item can be found throughout the Mojave Wasteland in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from Stimpak. To modify, please edit the source page.

A wonder of pre-War science, stimpaks are syringes filled with a mixture of healing agents and stimulants, allowing the user to boost their own body's natural regenerative functions.[2] In most cases, it leads to an almost instantaneous regeneration of wounds. The syringe is typically equipped with a gauge for quickly identifying the state of the contents and can be used either in an intravenous or intramuscular fashion. The basic stimpak is designed for use on minor wounds, as the soup of healing medication is ineffective at treating major trauma.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Stimpaks are a type of hand held medication used to healing the body. The item consists of a syringe for containing and delivering the medication and a gauge for measuring the status of the stimpak's contents. When the medicine is injected, it provides immediate healing of the body's minor wounds, delivering between 30-90 hit points per injection, dependent on the level of the player's Medicine skill.

Additionally, it can be used to heal crippled limbs by injecting it directly into the affected limb - via the PipBoy interface. When used on a limb it heals a relatively high amount of damage on the limb, but slight healing on the body. Conversely, when used on the whole body, a relatively high amount of damage on the whole body is healed, but the limbs are healed only slightly.

In hardcore mode, stimpaks will heal over time, versus instantly, and will not heal crippled limbs. Limbs can only be healed by a doctor or with the use of items that specifically indicate limb healing in their information, including, but not limited to, hydra, a doctor's bag, weapon binding ritual, daturana and healing poultice.
