Locations

  • Buried Treasure - In Vault 79, on a table in a room near the Auxiliary Operations Center. Requires asking Ra-Ra to explore.

Notes

  • Affected by the Grounded mutation.
  • Slain enemies may turn to goo piles. Enemies finished by a critical hit will always turn into goo.
  • Anything killed by plasma weapons has a chance to drop nuclear material on death. This chance increases if the target has been melted to goo.
