The Nuclear Option is a Hardmode accessory that can be purchased from the Cyborg. When equipped, it causes every fifth rocket fired by a launcher to be replaced with a radioactive missile, overriding the original rocket's effect. The radioactive missile's damage and knockback is double the replaced rocket, and inflicts the Cursed Inferno debuff for 5 seconds on hit.


  • If the Show Donator Item Color configuration option is disabled, The Nuclear Option will have a rarity of Rarity Level: 8 instead of the standard Rarity level: Donator.


  • This item is a reference to "The Nuclear Option" quest from the game Fallout 4.
