It can be crafted at any chemistry station.


When Survival mode is active, this item increases thirst by 30 points but also increases disease risk by 7% at the next disease check.


  • The highlight effect is most noticeable at night or in poorly lit areas and can be very hard to see during the day.
  • The effect states that it highlights living targets, but it also highlights 'non-living targets' like synths, turrets and other robots.
  • The effect is similar to the targeting HUD power armor helmet mod but distinct in that the helmet mod displays orange horizontal scan lines in line of sight, while this item shows a glowing purple haze even through walls or locked doors.
  • If added to the inventory of a companion that takes chems, such as Hancock, if the companion consumes Berry Mentats, it will also affect the Sole Survivor.


PCIcon pc The enemy highlighting effect lacks the correct keyword to be identified as a chem effect, so is unaffected by Chemist and BioCommMesh. [verified]
