This mod from Decane makes the blood puff more gory.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. BB Mod Redux (v2.0 FINAL)
This is a simple mod which changes the default blood puff into a more gory, wine-red colored variant and adds some chunks of gore among the blood vapor. It also changes the bloody marks on walls as per Hades’ Real Gore Mod, which is now merged into this one, and simulates NPCs’ bodies being ripped apart by explosives. This mod incorporates some components of EggChen's excellent Particle Enhancement 3.0 mod.
This mod does not require you to start a new game and should be compatible with any other mod which doesn’t include the same files as this one (although it can be made quite compatible by following the installation instructions). This mod was created using the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 1.0006 Worldwide version patch, but should also be compatible with all other patches, as long as the value of current_server_entity_version is changed from 7 to 6 in the system.ltx file in the case of patches prior to 1.0005. This mod is not compatible with AMK or Oblivion Lost.

1.) Navigate to your S.T.A.L.K.E.R. root directory (default: C:/Program Files/THQ/S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl/)
2.) Open the file "fsgame.ltx" with a text editor such as Notepad, and edit the line:
$game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata/
... Such that it looks like the one below:
$game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata/
All you have to do is change the "false" to "true".
3.) Extract the contents of the .zip file this readme was in, to your S.T.A.L.K.E.R. root directory.
4.) Navigate to your .../Program Files/THQ/S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl/gamedata/scripts/ -directory, and if running...
