— In-game description

Hot Blooded is a trait in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on, Old World Blues.


When your health drops below 50% you deal +15% more damage (see Bugs below), but you also suffer -2 to Perception and Agility.


  • The negative effects of this trait can be offset through the use of chems, armor, clothing, other perks or other traits. Sustaining the effect by remaining at the required health level or below allows it to combine exceptionally well with Ferocious Loyalty and high companion nerve.
  • This trait combines well with Bloody Mess (+5%) and the Lonesome Road perk (+10%) for a total of 130% damage + challenge acquired perks, weapon-appropriate perks, and other modifiers.
