RadAway is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from RadAway. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

RadAway is an intravenous chemical solution that bonds with radiation particles and passes them through the body's system. It takes some time to work, and is also a potent diuretic.

It cannot be used to keep away from, or resist radiation when entering radioactive areas like it's relative namesake Rad-X, but is instead used for after receiving radiation to purge some of it from the body.

On top of being addictive [1], it has several adverse effects, most notably headaches, stomach pains, and hair loss.

NotesEdit

  • Effect duration in Hardcore Mode is increased by Chemist and Day Tripper perks.
  • In Fallout: New Vegas, RadAway is much less common as most shops only have 1 to 3 in stock, if any at all, though it is often stocked by doctors. However, areas of significant radiation are far less prevalent, so the need for RadAway is reduced.
  • RadAway heals radiation over time in Hardcore mode, instead of instantly in Normal Mode.
  • RadAway glows even brighter than in Fallout 3, making it easy to locate.
  • After taking 20 doses of Rad-Away, you will be granted the Free Radical Perk, enhancing the effectiveness of RadAway.
  • RadAway bears a striking resemblance to a real-world unit of fresh frozen plasma (which would be a viable medium for such a chemical).
