With it easy to get radiated in Fallout 4 and Radaway hard to come by what craftable items are there that reduce your radiation levels?

I'm pretty sure I saw radiation reducing aid/ food mentioned on a loading screen but I've yet to come across anything apart from Radaway to do this.

  • You can craft radaway yourself and only need this: Antiseptic (2) Glowing fungus (3) Plastic (1) Purified water (1). I have so much radaway, I'm already selling it.

The following crafted items provide rad resistance:

  • Cooking: Baked Bloatfly (+25), Vegetable Soup (+15)
  • Chemistry: Glowing Bloodpack (+75)

Mutant Hound Chops reduces the current radiation level by 50 and can be crafted from Mutant Hound Meat, which is relatively easy to come by in comparison to frequent RadAway.

  • Do they provide rad resistance, or reduce radiation? Those are different.

  • As I said, Baked Bloatfly, Vegetable Soup and Glowing Bloodpack increase rad resistance and Mutant Hound Chops reduces radiation level.

At the expense of a little weight, you can add radiation resistance with the "Lead Lined" armor mod. This goes in armor's second mod slot, and requires Armorer 2 and Science 1.


I found this on Google

Power Armour can be upgraded, which is technically crafting.
