Volatile Fulgurium Fuel Rods are fuel for the Nuclear Reactor or the Rapid Fissile Accelerator.

Acquisition

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 Affliction Radiation Sickness.png Radiation Sickness to nearby characters: 0.2/s within 2.5 meters, and 1/s within 1 meter. Wearing a PUCS.png 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.png Hazmat Suit.
