Black blood sausage
Kind of like a "gourmet" version of the blood sausage, it is crafted from various ingredients to increase the effects of a normal blood sausage. The black blood sausage acts as an extreme health restoration and boosting item, by restoring +500 Hit Points over time and also temporarily increases maximum health by +25 when consumed. It is one of the only consumables that is not affected by hardcore mode.
- It is considered a banned item by Caesar's Legion, and will be confiscated when the player travels to The Fort.
- Restoring health with this item does not count towards the Desert Survivalist challenge.
Behind the scenes
- Like thin red paste, blood sausage is a term used in one of the graphic combat results featured in the combat prose of the Fallout series' spiritual predecessor, Wasteland. As in, "Your enemy explodes like a blood sausage".
- Blood sausage, or black pudding as it sometimes called, is a real-life type of sausage made by cooking blood or dried blood with a filler until it is thick enough to congeal when cooled.
