| ||For the perk, see Bloody Mess (perk).|
By some strange twist of fate, people around you die violently. You always see the worst way a person can die.”— In-game description
This trait does not alter gameplay other than the fact that violent death animations appear more often. However, it does have an effect on the ending of Fallout.
Bloody Mess has a positive impact if the plan is to use sledgehammers, or related heavy melee weapons. If someone dies, the death is instant instead of first sliding away.
