You see your sixth toe. It is a small mutated part of yourself. For some reason, you feel a terrible sense of loss as you look at the tiny amputated toe.— In-game description

The mutated toe is a miscellaneous item in Fallout 2.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

In order to acquire the mutated toe, the Chosen One must spend a certain amount of time in toxic waste without protection, causing the mutation to occur. The toe can then be amputated and acquired as an item in a medical center equipped with an Auto-Doc.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Having a mutated, unremoved toe will result in failure of the Vault City citizenship test.
  • Some non-player characters claim the toe is a one-hit K.O. device for destroying Frank Horrigan, but that is only a joke, although it does lower his max HP by 3 points.
  • In a rather humorous note, the game responds with "You just ate your fucking toe!" if it is consumed.
  • The lump of brain in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout makes a direct reference with "you feel a terrible sense of loss." The cure research note in The Pitt also makes reference to the item.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

According to its effects, the mutated toe seems set up to temporarily give the Awareness perk.
