With the Atomic! perk, you are 25% faster and stronger whenever you're basking in the warm glow of radiation. Outside irradiated areas, your Action Points (AP) regenerate faster and faster the higher your level of radiation sickness becomes.”— Fallout: New Vegas description
Effects[edit | edit source]
While irradiated, Action Points regenerate faster depending on the extent of your radiation exposure. If irradiated with 200-400 rads, AP regeneration is x1.1; 400-600, AP regeneration is x1.2; 600-800, AP regeneration is x1.33; and 800-999, AP regeneration is x1.5
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Synergizes well with Rad Child, Nerves of Steel, Travel Light, Fast Shot and Slayer.
- When eating foods that have a Rad effect longer than one second (such as coyote meat), the Atomic! perk will activate. Eating multiple coyote steaks will stack the Rads duration, giving the player a lengthy speed boost if many are consumed.
