For an overview of ant nectar, see ant nectar.


Ant nectar is an consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


Ant nectar is a naturally occurring substance secreted by giant ants. When consumed, the nectar grants +4 Strength, but inflicts a penalty of -2 to Charisma and Intelligence. It is addictive, though the chance of addiction is very small. Taking 7 doses in a short amount of time is relatively safe, but the eighth dose will have a 100% addiction chance due to the usage monitor effect.




With Chem Resistant, Old World Gourmet and Big Brained, the chance of addiction is only 1%, while employing a 33% longer duration if the Courier possesses Day Tripper as well.
