- Restoring health with this item does not count towards the Desert Survivalist challenge.
- HP restoration is increased by Implant Y-7.
- Black blood sausage does not restore AP when using this implant.
- The amount healed is not affected by the player character's Survival or Medicine skills, as it is not marked as a food or medicine item.
- The duration of both effects is affected by the Logan's Loophole trait and the Chemist and Day Tripper perks.
Behind the scenes
Like thin red paste, the other item created by Them's Good Eatin', the term "blood sausage" is used in one of the graphic combat results featured in the combat prose of the Fallout series' spiritual predecessor, Wasteland. It would typically appear in the form of "[player name] rips into [target name] like a scarlet side of meat, exploding it like a blood sausage."
The in-game Pip-Boy description erroneously shows "+35 HP(20s)" instead of +25 Max HP for 240 seconds and +10 HP for 20 seconds.[verified]
