Yao guai meat is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


Yao guai meat restores more hit points than other animal meats, such as mole rat, brahmin or dog meat, but also gives of a proportionally larger amount of radiation that other meats. However, it also provides a +10% boost in damage dealt by the player for a period of 2 minutes. This damage boost does not stack with each successive consumption; although it will increase the duration of the bonus.

  • Though no yao guai are present in the Mojave Wasteland, a single piece of yao guai meat can be found inside Legate's war tent, located in the Legate's Camp. It will be inaccessible if you are sent to kill Lanius.
  • In the Honest Hearts add-on however, yao guai are very common, so yao guai meat is plentiful. Once the add-on is installed, stores in the Mojave Wasteland will also begin to stock yao guai meat.


  • Unlike other meats, yao guai meat cannot be crafted into a steak.
