Psycho is a drug in the Fallout games. It has been described to increase tolerance to pain and causes extreme anger and recklessness.

BackgroundEdit

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


VariantsEdit

PsychoEdit

Chem psycho

Depending on the game, Psycho will give different effects. In Fallout and Fallout 2, Psycho increases damage resistance, allowing users to survive more hits in combat. In Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, Psycho increases the damage dealt. In the latter game, Psycho is an ingredient for the Slasher drug. In Fallout 4, Psycho acts like Slasher did in Fallout: New Vegas, boosting damage resistance as well as the Sole Survivor's damage output.

SlasherEdit
