For an overview of yao guai meat that appears in the Fallout series, see Yao guai meat.

Yao guai meat is a food item found in Fallout: New Vegas.


Yao guai meat generally restores more Hit Points than other animal meats such as mole rat, brahmin or dog meat, but also gives of a proportionally larger amount of radiation. Yao guai meat also gives a 10% bonus to damage when consumed. This damage boost does not stack with each successive consumption, although it will increase the duration of the bonus.

  • Though no yao guai are present in the Mojave Wasteland, a single piece of yao guai meat can be found inside Legate's war tent, located in the Legate's camp. It will be inaccessible in the quest to kill Lanius.
  • In the Honest Hearts add-on, yao guai are very common, so yao guai meat is plentiful. Once the add-on is installed, stores in the Mojave Wasteland will also begin to stock yao guai meat.
