Radiation is the prime manifestation of a nuclear explosion. Much of the pre-War world revolved around the use of radiation. From fission cars to using radiation in soft drinks, most of the world was comfortable with the persistent effects of radiation in their daily lives. After the Great War of 2077, the entire world was engulfed in nuclear fallout. The resulting radiation caused a vast array of mutations among surviving organisms, which became a permanent feature to the wasteland. Monitoring and coping with radiation has become a regular aspect of daily life but luckily there are only a few major hot zones in the wasteland while much of it is still habitable. If one absolutely has to venture into one of these hot zones, bringing Rad-X and RadAway would be a wise decision.
