Stimpak, or stimulation delivery package, is a type of hand-held medication used for healing the body. This item consists of a syringe for containing and delivering the medication and a gauge for measuring the status of the stimpak's contents. When the medicine is injected, it provides immediate healing of the body's minor wounds.

Health dispensers used during the Anchorage Reclamation, manufactured by Lee Rapid Pharmaceuticals, have an identical delivery method, which hints that stimpaks are also a product of the company.


Stimpaks are in all shapes and colors.


FO3 stimpak

The regular version of the drug. It heals only minor wounds and, in some games, broken limbs. Normal stimpaks have no negative side effects.

Super stimpakEdit

Chem SuperStim

An advanced version, while it heals more severe wounds, it also has unpleasant side effects. The super version comes in a hypodermic, but with an additional vial containing more powerful drugs than the basic model and a leather belt to strap the needle to your limb, an indication of a prolonged release infusion of the drug perhaps for increased absorption. The super stimpak is much less common in the wasteland than the standard stimpak.

Auto-inject (super) stimpakEdit

The auto-inject (super) stimpak is a modified stimpak which monitors vital signs, allowing for timely emergency treatment. It is used automatically from the player's inventory when their hit points drop below 50% (25% auto-inject super stimpak) of current maximum level.

Ultra stimpakEdit

Gameplay article: Fallout Tactics
Mini-FOT LogoThe following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.

Even more advanced than a super stimpak, the ultra stimpak not only immediately heals both minor and major wounds, it also induces a strong continual regenerative effect in patients for an extended period of time after initial application. Ultra stims are, understandably, rare finds.

Health dispenserEdit

Health Dispenser
Gameplay article: Operation: Anchorage

Health dispensers are stationary health stations found in the Anchorage Reclamation simulation, which might indicate that they were also used during the actual Anchorage Reclamation itself as well. Although immobile, they are reusable and more powerful than regular stimpaks, as they restore your health to full no matter how low it is.

Behind the scenesEdit

StimpacksIn-game spelling, punctuation and/or grammarIcon sic are also used by Terran soldiers in the StarCraft universe. This was published the year after the original Fallout was. "Stimpacks" are also an item that restores health in the early titles of the Doom series.
