Human remains are a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


It is acquired through the use of the Dine and Dash perk. It removes less hunger than human flesh, but does not contain any radiation and is much easier to acquire. Consuming human remains acquired with this perk is considered a "crime against nature" by bystanders, like feeding on a fresh corpse, and results in bad Karma.
