  • Thick red paste is considered a "banned" item by Caesar's Legion, and will be confiscated when the player character travels to The Fort.
  • In hardcore mode it has no effect on the player character's Food or H2O meters.
  • Restoring health with this item does not count towards the Desert Survivalist challenge.
  • HP restoration is increased by Implant Y-7.
    • Thick red paste does not restore AP when using this implant.
  • The amount healed is not affected by the player character's Survival or Medicine skills, as it is not marked as a food or medicine item.
  • The duration of both effects is affected by the Logan's Loophole trait and the Chemist and Day Tripper perks.
