Atomic-Valence Tri-Radii-Oscillator

The Atomic-Valence Tri-Radii-Oscillator is a piece of headwear in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


This item is a variant of the Valence radii-accentuator, differing from the original by having three orbiting halos (at a 60° angle to one another) instead of one. These halos are bright blue in color and orbit the wearer's head. The oscillator has 33% more DT than the valence radii-accentuator and restores 24 hit points every in-game hour. For comparison, the valence radii-accentuator only restores 12 hit points per in-game hour. There are only two Atomic-valence tri-radii-oscillators in the game, making them semi-unique.




  • The Atomic-valence tri-radii-oscillator is considered a "hair" item and can be worn with some headgear such as berets, pre-War bonnets, Daniel's hat Honest Hearts, and space suit helmets.
    • Wearing it with any of these items will also show the Courier's hair, otherwise, the Atomic-valence will render them bald.
  • Its regeneration effect stacks with the Monocyte Breeder. When used together, they regenerate 3 hit points in one set amount every 10 seconds, totaling 36 hit points per in-game hour (2 minutes).

Behind the scenes

The atomic-valence tri-radii-oscillator has the same form as the Rutherford model of the atom devised by Ernest Rutherford.
