| ||For the RadAway that appears in the Fallout series, see RadAway.|
RadAway is an intravenous chemical solution that bonds with radiation particles and passes them through the body's system. It takes time to work, and is also a potent diuretic. It cannot be used to keep away radiation when entering radioactive areas like Rad-X, but instead is used after receiving radiation to purge some from the body.
It has several adverse effects, most notably headaches, stomach pains, and hair loss.
In Fallout 3, RadAway is no longer addictive. This item looks a bit like a blood pack, except with a short tube and a distinctive orange color. It can be found in almost every medical or science facility and can often be found in first aid boxes that hang on walls or are kept on shelves. It can also be bought from a variety of doctors in the Capital Wasteland. The effectiveness of RadAway is dependant on the player's Medicine skill, meaning that the higher the player's Medicine skill, the more Rads are removed.
Medicine skill effectEdit
- RadAway has a dull glow, making it easier to find in the dark, though not as strong a glow as a Nuka-Cola Quantum. There is also a readable label marked "RadAway" written on it. This makes it easier to distinguish from a blood pack.
- Probably the easiest way to obtain a large number of these is to trade tech with Henry Casdin at Fort Independence. See the unmarked quest The Outcast Collection Agent to see exchange details.
- RadAway can be received from Winthrop in the Museum of History for five pieces of scrap metal. See the repeatable quest This Old House.
- RadAway can sometimes be obtained from Moira Brown, after contracting radiation poisoning in the quest Wasteland Survival Guide.
