Fast Metabolism is a Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas perk.


With the Fast Metabolism perk, the player gains a 20% bonus when using stimpaks. In Hardcore mode, the multiplier increases the amount of healing per second making stimpaks an even better in-combat healing option. Players outside of Hardcore mode may be better served by simply applying multiple stimpaks from their Pip-boy rather than investing in the perk.

This perk also affects (adapted) alien biogel, which is added to Fallout 3 with the Mothership Zeta add-on.


Synergizes extremely well with Better Healing, Cardiac Arrest Old World Blues (add-on) Gametitle-FNV OWB and a high Medicine skill.
