Strange Meat is a food item found in Fallout 3. Strange Meat is actually human flesh. It can restore some of your Hit Points, but also gives you a small amount of radiation. You can only buy or loot it from hunters, who are often seen "hunting" lone wastelanders. Old Man Harris in Andale will reveal that Andale's residents are cannibals and strange meat is found in their residences. The shed in Andale has Wastelander corpses on a bench, obviously being butchered, and the nearby refrigerators contain Strange Meat, making the connection obvious.


  • You receive good karma for killing hunters who sell strange meat.
  • Hunters will attack wastelanders and if the player loots their slain corpse, the player is considered stealing and the hunters will remark by exclaiming "Hey!". Meat may be found in the corpse. When attacking you, a hunter says "I wanted to eat you from the beginning, but Jim said noooo."
  • If the player asks to buy food from the "hunters" and then closes the trade box they will gain the dialogue option to inquire "What kind of meat is that you're selling?" to which the hunter will respond "Ha ha ha, the very best kind. Here, try some, you've never tasted sweeter I'll warrant" and give the player a free piece of strange meat whether or not the player has previously bought any or all of the meat off the hunter.
  • O-Dog in The Pitt is also carrying some strange meat. You can obtain it by pickpocketing him.
