Psycho is a drug in the Fallout series.


Psycho appears as a form of injected drug composed of strange, unknown chemicals of military origin, that comes with its own unique delivery system. It was designed at the orders of General Chase specifically for military use. It increases a soldier's damage resistance, and its dampening effect on higher brain functions make for tough, but uncontrollable, troops. This drug was very popular for human-wave assaults.[1]
