|Volatile Fulgurium Fuel Rod|
A Fulgurium fuel rod that has been further refined to supply power for much longer than normal. However, its radiation shielding can only partially limit the emitted ambient radiation, so the rod must be handled with care.
|Type||Fuel, Talent Item|
|Used by|| Rapid Fissile Accelerator|
The Volatile Fulgurium Fuel Rod can only be crafted by an Engineer with the Hazardous Materials talent.
Function & Usage
Unlike other fuel rods, Volatile Fulgurium Fuel Rods will constantly inflict Radiation Sickness to nearby characters: 0.2/s within 2.5 meters, and 1/s within 1 meter. Wearing a PUCS is the ideal solution when handling them, as it grants immunity to Radiation Sickness. Other radiation protective gear include the various types of Diving Suits and the Hazmat Suit.
