Rad Resistance allows you to -- what else? -- resist radiation. This perk grants an additional 25% to Radiation Resistance.— In-game description

Rad Resistance is a perk in Fallout 3.

Effects

With this perk, one's radiation resistance improves by 25%.

Notes

The necessity of this perk is questionable, since it is trivially easy to temporarily boost radiation resistance to the maximum with Rad-X and various radiation-resistant armor. Combined with the fact that there are few areas with a high enough radiation level to warrant such resistance, there is no pressing need to take it. The perks gained from The Pitt will grant 13% radiation resistance in total, the Cyborg perk will add 10% more as well as providing other useful effects and at the same time, and each point in Endurance nets a natural resistance of 2%. All power armors (not including tribal power armor and Ashur's power armor) increase radiation resistance as well (ranging from 10 to 25%). Even if the player should encounter heavy doses of radiation, Rad-X and RadAway is of no shortage, and an advanced radiation suit can also be obtained.
