Blood sausage is a consumable item in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


Blood sausage is a healing item which restores the player's Hit Points when consumed, and also temporarily increases maximum HP by 10 points.


With the Them's Good Eatin' perk, there is a 50% chance that one or more will be in the inventory of any living creature killed by the player.


  • Blood sausage is an ingredient of the more potent healing item black blood sausage.
  • It is considered a "banned" item by Caesar's Legion, and will be confiscated when the player travels to The Fort.
  • In hardcore mode, it has no effect on the player'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.
    • Blood sausage does not restore AP when using this implant.
  • Though the world model for blood sausage is the same as iguana bits, the Pip-Boy icon is different.
  • The amount healed is not affected by the player'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.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Like thin red paste, "blood sausage" is a term used in one of the graphic combat results featured in the combat prose of the Fallout series' spiritual predecessor, Wasteland. The description says, "Your enemy explodes like a blood sausage."
  • Blood sausage, or "black pudding" as it is sometimes called, is a real-life type of sausage made by cooking blood or dried blood with a filler until it is thick enough to congeal when cooled.
