|For the trait, see Fast Metabolism (trait).|
Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas
With the Fast Metabolism perk, the player character gains a 20% bonus when using stimpaks. In Hardcore mode, the multiplier increases the amount of healing per second making stimpaks an even better in-combat healing option. Players outside of Hardcore mode may be better served by simply applying multiple stimpaks from their Pip-Boy rather than investing in the perk.
Fallout: The Roleplaying Game
When regaining one or more HP from any source other than rest, increase the total HP regained by +1 per rank in this perk.
Each time this perk is taken, the level requirement increases by 3.
