It consists of three parts: the Radiation Suit itself, the Radiation Gloves, and the Radiation Helmet. These three parts are all added to the Inventory when the player crafts the Radiation Suit in the fabricator.
The Radiation Suit parts must be placed in the slots of the Paperdoll UI to take effect. When not worn, the suit and both of its equipment takes up four slots in the inventory each.
The Radiation Suit is the only way to survive inside the radiation zone after the Aurora's explosion. Therefore, it's very important to get a Radiation Suit as soon as possible.
The player is able to swap out parts of the Radiation Suit for other items, such as the Rebreather. However, for it to eliminate radiation damage completely, the player still needs to have all three parts equipped. Equipping other parts thus results in small amounts of radiation damage in exchange for whatever bonus the other equipment gives.

- The Radiation Suit and the Reinforced Dive Suit are the only recipes in the game that give multiple different items when crafted.
