I'm playing in Survival Mode.

A Radiation Storm started so I found shelter in a closed building. I've been waiting for 24 ingame hours now, checking every two ingame hours if the storm has passed, but it still there... and I'm almost out of food and water.

Is it a bug? Can a Radiation Storm possibly last so long?

EDIT. More details in case it happens to somedy else: The Rad Storm started when I was around General Atomics Galeria. I found shelter in the Black Alley Bowling.

  • What did you do to pass the time? Did you sit in a chair and waited, or just stood there?

  • @Nelson, yes, I sat in a chair and waited 2 hours, check the weather outside, came back inside, repeat...

  • Short enough you can probably just ignore it, if you have any rad resist (cough, vault suit, cough) at all.

Oddly enough, according to the Fallout wikia page on Weather, Radstorms typically only last around 2 in-game hours.

Radiation storms last for about two in-game hours, and are comparatively rare in terms of weather conditions.

It seems crazy for a radstorm to have lasted 24 in-game hours, though, so it might be that you slept through the end of one radstorm and woke up during another.

  • OK, so after waiting 10 hours more, and checking again every two hours, I decided it was a bug and restarted from my previous save. Thanks.

  • @Bebs, did that fix it? I've never seen a bug like this...

  • Sort of... the previous save (= sleep in Survival) was a little before, so the storm didn't even came back.
