There are several different drugs in We Happy Few, but not many are as useful as Neximide Pills. This medication will save your life out in the game’s twisted world, especially if you find yourself suffering from hunger. What they do is cure food poisoning. That means you can eat a bunch of rotten food to fill your stomach, then pop one of these handy little tablets to not have to worry about dizziness and violent spurts of vomiting.
The fact that it makes all food edible is a true lifesaver making Neximide Pills the real MVP of We Happy Few. Food, especially fresh food, isn’t particularly common, so you can’t really be all that picky. Of course, Neximide Pills can only help if you actually have some.
When you first start We Happy Few, you’ll have a couple of these handy tablets in your inventory. In order to get more, though, you’ll have to do a bit of scavenging. They can be found in most containers, though I’ve never found any in the garbage nor in rubble. But chests, dressers, cabinets, and other normal containers have had some. If you perform a takedown on an NPC, especially a Wastrel (the Downers in the starting area), you have a good chance of getting some too. They most likely carry them since they live on the outskirts of town and rotten food is the most common food.
Thankfully, Neximide Pills aren’t extraordinarily rare. You can carry them in stacks of 10 (meaning once you pass 10 they start to take another inventory slot). Always keep a few on hand, you never know when you’ll have to take a longer journey and be far from some good eating.
