Wasteland Wiki

Radiation detection rod is an item in Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation.


Originally used by Cheyenne's pre-Deluge scientists as a wearable warning system that turned yellow when they absorbed radiation, these rods - made of lab-grown synthetic diamond - are now worn by the followers of the Holy Detonation as badges of honor to prove they've worshipped in the presence of their god.
