|~ Ingame description|
The Radioactive Exclusion Zone is one of the biomes of Hoxxes IV, located in the south-east of the planet. They usually have big open spaces, connected by wide tunnels. The Radioactive Crystals, while dangerous, do produce light. The caves themselves are generally empty with very few living things around.
Hazards[edit | edit source]
The biome-specific hazard for the Radioactive Exclusion Zone are Radioactive Crystals, which irradiate anyone who get too close and slowly eats away at health. It can be destroyed by directly hitting its light source or simply smashing it with a pickax. There are also Spider Webs (likely created by the glyphids) which, when passed through, will cover the player in webs, reducing movement speed and placing an effect on the screen that obstructs vision. As always, webs can be burned with the CRSPR.

Biome Features[edit | edit source]
The Radioactive Exclusion Zone contains sparse and highly irradiated flora (Some with eyes, gross), along with dead trees. The Cave Vine unique to this biome, while creepy, are harmless and will at most be a mild nuisance.

Ores[edit | edit source]
As with every biome, some of the ores which can be found in the Radioactive Exclusion Zone are determined by the mission type, such as Morkite, Aquarq or Hollomite. The crafting materials found in the Crystalline Caverns are Umanite and Enor Pearl, with Umanite being abundant and Enor Pearl being scarce.
