Mirelurk meat is a food item found in Fallout 3. It restores a fair amount of Hit Points (20 under normal circumstances, 24 with the food sanitizer), while also imparting a small amount of Radiation (2 rads). Mirelurk meat has a good reputation in the Wasteland, due it being "healthier" than other meats.
Mirelurk meat can always be found on mirelurks and occasionally on mirelurk hunters. On somewhat rare occasions, it can be found in mirelurk eggs, and the 'poisoned to death' mirelurks in basin outside of Project Purity after its activation.
- Point Lookout (add-on) A large number can be found in the mirelurk eggs opposite the Wrecked Seatub in Point Lookout.
- Large quantities can be found in the fridges inside the Anchorage Memorial and on the Mirelurks that inhabit the memorial.
- Mirelurk meat is also an ingredient in mirelurk cakes.
- Although mirelurk meat is a mirelurk's claw, when the meat is taken from a dead mirelurk, it still has both claws.
