FO76 publicteam xpd.pngFor an overview of ant meat , see ant meat.

Ant meat is an aid item in Fallout: New Vegas.


Ant meat is a type of meat scavenged from giant ant corpses. It can restore Hit Points and help stave off Starvation, but also imparts +3 radiation when consumed. Additionally, it temporarily lowers Strength by 1-3 points when playing on Hardcore Mode. It is one of the few types of meat in the Mojave Wasteland that is not used in crafting other consumables.
