By some strange twist of fate, people around you die violently. You always see the worst way a person can die.

— In-game description

Bloody Mess is a trait in Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics.


This trait does not alter gameplay other than the fact that violent death animations are seen more often. However, it does have an effect on the ending of Fallout.

Bloody Mess has a positive impact if you plan to use the super sledge, or related heavy melee weapons. If someone dies, the death is instant instead of first sliding down half of the game screen.
