Them's Good Eatin'

Any living creature you kill has a 50% chance to have the potent healing items Thin Red Paste or Blood Sausage when looted.— In-game description

Them's Good Eatin' is a perk in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


When this perk is taken, all living creatures killed have a 50% chance of having 1-3 Thin Red Paste or Blood Sausages on them. In Casual Mode, with this perk, food can be forsaken entirely in favor of this.

As a result of this perk, the recipes Thick Red Paste and Black Blood Sausage can be made at campfires.


  • This perk can be a significant source of caps, as Thin Red Paste and Blood Sausage both have a very high value for their weight (125 and 175, respectively).
  • The effects provided by these new items are powerful. The health regeneration can be +10 health per second for the craftable black blood sausage. This is already well above the already powerful regeneration made possible by Rad Child, which doesn't provide the max health bonuses that the items activated by this perk also provide.
  • The items provided by this perk are not marked as food items by the game. They are not affected by Survival, and do not count towards food-related achievements.
