Honest Hearts add-on

Large wasteland tequila (1)


  • With the Whiskey Rose perk, the player won't be affected by the negative Intelligence effect.
  • Despite the fact the large whiskey bottle weighs two pounds, the large wasteland tequila only weighs one pound.
  • The combined cost of the materials needed to make this is 51 caps, more than double the tequila's value.
  • Although it is a larger version of wasteland tequila, it provides less DT than the normal sized tequila, provided the player has the Whiskey Rose perk. Otherwise, it is the only alcohol that naturally provides DT.
