Mentats are a chemical substance found in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics and Van Buren.


Mentats are most useful for characters with low Intelligence. Furthermore, they are one of the games' more valuable items yet are relatively easy to find. This makes them also useful as an easy source of funds, particularly when first starting.

In Fallout 2

The +1 to Charisma can allow recruiting another companion if the new Charisma is an even number. The new member will stay once Charisma returns to the normal score. Mentats are roughly a little bit less common than Buffout: a bit hard to find and a tad expensive, but nowhere near as rare as Psycho.
