RAD: Tips and tricks to start the adventure off right

Share

RAD is one of those games where you learn by dying and starting again. Here are some tips so that your first runs in the wasteland do not turn into a nightmare…

Two types of mutations

As we mentioned in the test, RAD’s gameplay is based on the principle of mutations and there are two types:

  •     Endo-mutations which can be found or purchased in the Wasteland and which offer permanent elemental resistance bonuses or discounts from sellers. Less impressive than exo-mutations, they are nevertheless very useful. Do not neglect them !
  •     Exo-mutations which take more extreme forms and are directly linked to radiation. The more the protagonist unzips monsters, the more he is exposed to the mutagenics of the wasteland. When the radioactivity gauge is full, the young hero’s human envelope is transformed. They can be combined up to 3.

Mutations are randomly assigned to heroes.

Learn to master rolls

Your character’s basic attack is weak and their reach is quite short. The roll is actually your best asset in combat. This is why it is essential to learn to master this dodging technique.

It is possible to detect, by observing your enemies, when they will strike. You can plan this attack to dodge it before responding, without losing your precious hit points.

Explore underground and bunkers

To get stronger and discover all the secrets of the wasteland, there is only one solution: explore the whole map, and especially the underground ones.

These are populated by enemies but you can also find endo-mutations there with statues. It is vital to extract all resources from your environment. Also don’t forget to visit the bunkers. Their entrance is represented by a round cover.

Break everything !

Most objects are destructible in RAD. Do not hesitate to throw bats in everything around you: it is not uncommon to find K7s, food and useful items for your quest.

Shermie and her shop

Shermie is the one-armed saleswoman at the base (next to a table). At the start of the game, you can buy a floppy disk for 5 K7. It does not seem very interesting but the more you buy items, the more stock gets better. Subsequently, his shop will even offer some rare artifacts.
