The irr. gecko meat or irradiated gecko meat is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


Uncooked gecko meat, unlike all other forms of raw meat, provides a penalty to the player's Strength even when not in Hardcore mode. However, it does provide a relatively low amount of radiation and a small amount of restoration to Hit Points.

It used to be a simple filleted meat of a gecko, but after extended exposure to radiation, it gives the player character a comparatively large dose of rads.
