Frenzy is a condition that can be inflicted upon certain creatures in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. Robots, ants, and Enclave-controlled Deathclaws have certain body parts targetable in V.A.T.S., by skilled sharpshooters outside of V.A.T.S., or by explosives. If these parts are crippled, the target will disregard any friend-or-foe relations and attack anything indiscriminately. When frenzied, nearby allies may attack the frenzied creature even before it has a chance to attack them. A message notification will inform if a target has been frenzied.

  • Dr. Mobius' glove Old World Blues (add-on)Gametitle-FNV OWB frenzies anyone and anything with a critical hit, regardless if the target is organic or robotic, or if it normally has a frenzy-inducing V.A.T.S. target.
