Stimpak, homemade is a consumable item in the Fallout: New Vegas mod JSawyer, created by the game's lead designer - J.E. Sawyer.


Stimpaks are a type of hand held medication used to healing the body. This 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 15-45 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.

Due to the homemade cocktail ingredients used to simulate the effects of stimpaks (albeit at a weaker rate), these stimpaks also pack a punch that reduces the players Perception by 1.

Note: this item is also craftable via a dialogue option with Veronica, or with ED-E (with at least 1 rank of the Camarader-E perk).


Homemade stimpaks cannot be found in containers or bought from vendors, so the player must craft them.


  • Homemade stimpaks take the place of the workbench-created regular stimpaks from the base game.
