A Radiation Storm, often referred to as a Rad Storm for short, is an extreme weather phenomenon.
A Radiation Storm is a windstorm that carries radioactive particles. It is characterised by strong winds, accompanying a thunderstorm, that churn up thick clouds of green radioactive dust, severely limiting visibility.
Each Radiation Storm lasts for about 5 minutes.
Players who own a Survivotron VI will receive an audio cue in the form of audible clicks. The Survivotron VI also comes with a built-in Geiger counter, which players may use to monitor radiation levels.
Diving underwater or seeking refuge in houses, bases, and vehicles provide shelter from radiation. Sewers, caves, bunkers, and cellars provide the best protection against radiation during a Radiation Storm.
