The bloatfly slider is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


A bloatfly slider is a food item which provides a moderate amount of health restoration over a relatively short duration. It is also one of a minority of foods which provide more than minimal restoration to both the player's Dehydration and Starvation levels while in Hardcore mode.

Bloatfly slider (1)


  • Bloatfly sliders are one of the first "large healing" food items that the player is likely to craft, owing to the presence of both Bloatflies and prickly pear fruit in the Goodsprings Cemetery, as well as the low skill required to craft.
  • Gametitle-FNV OWB Bloatfly meat can be found on the legendary bloatfly in excess of 50 pieces. Combined with the ability to make prickly pear fruit from Salient Green this consumable can become very plentiful and cost-effective, more so than stimpaks.
