Radiation Protection Upgrade is an exosuit upgrade.


Radiation Protection Upgrades, contained within Radiation Protection Modules, are upgrades granting supplementary protection against radiation.

Upgrade properties[]

The protection offered by Radiation Protection Upgrades, unlike that offered by the Exosuit's built-in radiation protection, does not recharge automatically while in locations without a significant radiation hazard. Radiation Protection Upgrades must be manually recharged as needed using Uranium (6.25%/unit) or Ion Batteries (100%/unit).


Radiation Protection Upgrades can only be obtained from opening Radiation Protection Modules.
