Created before the war as a general performance enhancer, X-cell never got out of the prototype stage, but was widely distributed on the black market. It boosts every
SPECIAL attribute for a limited period of time, but is highly addictive.
It appears to be some sort of inhaler; it boosts all S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attributes by 2 points for a limited duration. According to the Survival Guide, this duration is 120 seconds. With an addiction rate of 35%, X-cell is 2.3 times more addictive than any other chem in the game. Because of its rarity, carrying some
addictol is recommended, as taking doses simply to sustain an addiction is not feasible, and the penalties of addiction are high.
