Mr. RADical[1] (named scavenger in-game) was an insane scavenger in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background[edit | edit source]

One day this scavver found a radiation suit, he became so extremely excited about the find that he immediately renamed himself "Mr. RADical." He would decide to test his new find; the third day with the suit he made an overnight visit to Yucca Mountain, he didn't tread too deep into the facility fearing the large moving object that he could barely see further down the tunnel. Being simply overjoyed with his suit it didn't occur to him that all the vomiting he was experiencing the next morning could've been radiation sickness. Blaming the whole episode on something he ate and was satisfied with none of the sick getting on the suit.[1]

On the ninth day he ran across Old Lady Gibson and her scrap yard. At this point he was simply out of his mind with pride; believing himself completely invulnerable to radiation so long as he had the suit. He immediately asked if she had anything radioactive for sale. An unusual request, though not one she was unable to deliver. For years she had this glowing container she was using for a nightlight simply because it wouldn't sell. He snapped it up for fifty caps and decided to head to Clark Field to prove to himself that the suit could withstand higher radiation levels. His delusion in the suit got to the point that he not only believed that if the suit held up there, he could just open the jar and dowse himself with the contents but also that he could swim in it.[1][2]

In the end it was his delusional pride and overconfidence that would be his undoing, well that and the radiation poisoning and Golden geckos. His corpse lies at the end of the road, at the entrance to the facility.

  2. The Courier: "Did you ever salvage containers of radioactive material from REPCONN?"
    Gibson: "Certainly did. Hubby and me had an old rad meter to help us tell the difference between what you could salvage and what'd kill you. I kept a glowing container from REPCONN around here for years serving no better purpose than a nightlight. Damn thing wouldn't sell. Then along comes the most peculiar-looking fellow, all decked out in a yellow radiation suit, of which he was proud all out of proportion. The man outright asked if I had anything radioactive for sale - imagine that! But he paid handsome for that jar of goop. Only saw him that once. He said something about heading over to Clark Field to put his suit through its paces. A strange one, he was..."
