Fallout 2 description

Rad Resistance is a perk in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, and Fallout Tactics.

Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics[edit | edit source]

+15% to radiation resistance (+45% with three ranks). Functionally useless, as radiation is not a concern, with only the Glow posing a problem (which can be rectified with two doses of Rad-X).

Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas[edit | edit source]

+25% to radiation resistance. The perk is functionally useless, as it is trivially easy to temporarily boost radiation resistance to the maximum with Rad-X, various radiation-resistant armor and other perks with more benefits, and a general absence of heavily irradiated areas.

Fallout 4[edit | edit source]

  • Rank 1: +10 radiation resistance
  • Rank 2: +20 radiation resistance
  • Rank 3: +30 radiation resistance
  • Rank 4: +40 radiation resistance

Actually useful, due to the way radiation reduces the maximum health. However, it's more comfortable to avoid irradiation in the first place.
