With the Lead Belly perk, you take 50% less radiation every time you drink from an irradiated water source.— In-game description

Lead Belly is a perk in Fallout 3.

Effects

With the Lead Belly perk, 50% less radiation is taken every time you drink from an irradiated water source.

Notes

  • Because the game relies on the same engine as Oblivion, which used floating point numbers even if the player only saw rounded whole numbers, it is highly likely that a source of water that goes (for example) from "1 Rad" pre-perk to "1 Rad" post-perk is still accurately treated internally i.e. 1 Rad versus .5 Rad.
  • At high levels this perk may become redundant; RadAway, Rad-X, and apparel with radiation resistance, such as power armor, become more available and readily obtainable.
