Iguana bits are a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


This section is transcluded from Iguana bits. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

This item was carried over from the original Fallout, and was originally made by Iguana Bob Frazier who used the remains of human corpses supplied by Doc Morbid.


Iguana bits restore 5 Hit Points at the expense of increasing radiation count by 3. They are commonly found on dinner plates all across the wasteland, from the various food vendors, or simply laying on the floor.
