Coyote tobacco chew is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas. It comes from the coyote tobacco plant.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

It is also possible to become addicted to this item, addiction effects are a -1 to Perception and Charisma. With the addition of the Honest Hearts add-on, this item is also used to brew black coffee.

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Westside has 25 harvestable plants - ten in the planters in the easternmost part of the area (just northeast of the north cistern) and 15 in the planters east of the Westside Co-op, ten in one planter and five in another. (Note: some of these plants are owned.) These plants also regrow after a certain amount of in-game days, so they can be an endless supply.
  • There is also one loose leaf on a grave in Goodsprings Cemetery.
  • One plant grows slightly northeast of the Primm water tower (useful for raising Lockpick to help get Lucky).
  • Four harvestable plants can be found at Wolfhorn ranch.
  • Six leaves can be found in a duffle bag at the top of a ramp in the train yard immediately north of Boulder City.
  • Some can be found at the Mojave Outpost, inside the barracks on the shelf. Must be stolen.
  • At least three can be found near Ranger station Echo - One directly west of the tower structure (next to some rocks) while the other is very close to the half-way point between the station and Coyote Mines, just west of a water-filled crater (also near rocks). The third is found directly ahead of the second to the southwest, near a small, lone Joshua tree (and more rocks).
  • Two can be found to the right of Raul's shack.
  • One can be found under the water tower some distance directly south of the marker for the Boulder City ruins on the local map.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Although coyote tobacco chew is addictive, the beverage black coffee with that ingredient and craftable with Honest Hearts, is non-addictive.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The coyote tobacco plant is based on the real world Nicotiana attenuata, colloquially known as coyote tobacco. The plant is native to and grows wild in the southwestern United States and Mexico. It is not to be confused with the plant commonly used and processed into tobacco cigarettes.
