After Burner is a powerful methamphetamine chewing gum that stimulates the central nervous system. The initial euphoric rush rarely lasts more than a few minutes, but during that time, the user is filled with a rush of energy & strength.
The effects of the After Burner gum are identical to that of jet in Fallout 2 but with a lower risk of addiction and are much rarer.
Activating After Burner gum's "use on" function and targeting the turrets in Peoria (even if they're still inactive) damages them. It usually takes four applications of gum to destroy each turret. During this activity the character's stats do not change though the addicted alert often appears above their head.
