    So, what does radiation poisoning look like? Fallout 1, 2 and tactics had things like skin falling off and such.

    However, that's the only thing I found, am I missing anything?

    In the world of Fallout or in the real world?
    In both you puke quite a bit. When you get rad poisoning your worldmap travel will be interrupted every once in a while for puking.

    I am talking about Fallout world, that's why I put it here. It has been on my mind, since in 1,2 and tactics radiation stages had hair falling off, etc.

    New Vegas only made minor stat reduction and I do not remember a single mention of radiation having any major effect on the appearance outside of that.

    Based off the descriptions of rad poisoning in fallout 1/2, it’s pretty much the same as in the real world. Hair falling out, skin peeling off, vomiting blood. You might look pale and sickly, or you might look sunburned.
