Fallout Tactics super stimpak
An advanced healing chem. Very powerful. Superstims will cause a small amount of damage after a period of time due to powerful nature of the chemicals used.”
Super stimpak is a more advanced version of the regular stimpak. While it heals more severe wounds, it also has unpleasant side effects, causing minor damage some time after use.
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 the limb.
When injected, a super stimpak heals 75 HP immediately, but the powerful nature of drugs used in the process will cause an adverse reaction from the organism, resulting in draining 9 HP after two minutes.
Sometimes, chemistry geniuses can whip up a super stimpak, which is the case with Myron, who could create one from 1 stimpak, 1 Nuka-Cola and 1 fruit for a scientifically-inclined Chosen One (76% Science or more).
Use for assassinationEdit
Super stimpaks also have a nefarious purpose. They can be used to assassinate friendly non-player characters in populated areas; no one would suspect killing a person with stimpaks, because they heal people. Having the Awareness perk helps, as one can see how much health the target has. Simply divide their maximum health by 9 and round up. The number reached is how many super stimpaks needed to kill the victim. Stick the stimpaks in a weapon slot (for convenience and speed) and use the applicable number of stimpaks on the victim. After waiting 2 minutes, they should die from the latent damage (9 points per pak').
