I have come across the occasional can of beer/bottle of vodka. What will happen if I drink them? Can I get drunk?

Drinking an alcoholic drink will boosts your health above 100 - much like painkillers and hypostims, but with the added negative side effect of giving you blurred vision for a short period of time (the severity and duration of this effect vary depending on the drink).

The descriptions also imply that drinking them provides a "small increase in damage resistance", but I have no further information (such as duration or size of effect) and personally wonder if this is just indirectly referring to the fact you get a health boost.

If you examine the drink from your inventory it will tell you how much health it will add.

    It also makes you more susceptible to damage.

  • @Arda do you know if this effect only lasts during the blurred vision or for longer? And do you know by how much?

  • I don't know by how much, but this is what the in-game text said.

    I just picked up a bottle of vodka. "Beverage will imbue the drinker with a small increase in damage resistance."
