Death messages

Death messages are the lines played at the death screen (or Game Over screen) in Fallout and Fallout 2 when the player character dies. While the death messages are apparently played randomly in Fallout, in Fallout 2, the messages change depending on how far the player got by the time s/he was killed.


  • "You fought valiantly, but to no avail. Your twisted and ruined body goes down in a hail of bullets... and thus ends your life in the wasteland..."
  • "The radiation has taken its toll. Your death was lingering and extremely painful. Your adventure is done..." (A death message specifically meant for death by radiation poisoning)
  • "Your life ends in the wasteland..."
  • "Not even the carrion eaters are interested in your irradiated corpse..." (While this death message is also played randomly under normal circumstances, it always plays when your character specifically dies of radiation poisoning)
  • "The darkness of the afterlife is all that awaits you now. May you find more peace in that world than you found in this one..."
  • "Your bones are scraped clean by the desolate wind. Your Vault will now surely die... as you have..."
