Tier 4 Planets

Deadly Radiation is a planet hazard status effect found on all Tier 4 Planets. It reduces the player's health to 15% of maximum health and prevents health from rising above that threshold while the effect is active. Though this status effect cannot kill a player directly, it does weaken the player significantly.

Players can protect themselves by equipping radiation EPPs. Heating EPPs and cooling EPPs also protect against Deadly Radiation. Once protected, players are completely immune to this effect.

When piloting a mech on a planet or in a space encounter that inflicts Deadly Radiation, S.A.I.L. will prompt the pilot with a message: "WARNING! Your vehicle is not certified for this environment. Disregarding this warning may cause pilot death and/or invalidation of vehicle warranty." When subject to Deadly Radiation without a sufficient body, the mech will drain 20 more MJ of energy per second. A mech body can resist Deadly Radiation if the sum of its Max Energy and Defense rating bars is 4 or greater.

The Deadly Radiation status effect is present on planets with the following primary biomes:
