Want to lock in your current Mutations? Equip the the Starched Genes Perk, and you'll be less likely to be mutated by radiation and RadAway will remove Mutations less often.

Starched Genes is a Luck-based perk in Fallout 76.


To use this perk card, one must be at least level 30. At max rank, one will never mutate from Rads and Radaway will never cure mutations.

While Starched Genes prevents mutations, at rank two it effectively makes acquired mutations permanent by removing the chance of RadAway from curing any. While equipped, player characters who want to keep a mutation can benefit from RadAway's effect of reversing decreased maximum health without the risk of losing the desired mutation. To remove a mutation, this card must be unequipped for RadAway to have a chance to cure it.


Rank Description Form ID
1 Less chance for you to mutate from rads or for Radaway to cure mutations. 00397CB0
2 You will never mutate from Rads and Radaway will never cure mutations. 00397CB1


Besides perks that have group effects, perks can be selected to be shared among team members. Each player can only choose one perk to be shared at a time, and the selected perk can be changed at any time during gameplay. However, the player must have a Charisma point level that is at least three times the rank of the perk card that is to be shared, regardless of what SPECIAL attribute the shared perk card belongs to. Shared perk cards will not stack effects if duplicates are equipped or shared.
