The effects of a radiation shielding suit can also be obtained with the cheat code idbeholdr.
For the 20% damaging floor types, there is a small chance (6/256 ≈ 2.3%) that the damage will penetrate the protective suit during a given second, thus reducing health (or health and armor combined) by 20%. Due to the periodicity of the pseudorandom number generator used by the Doom engine, however, the probability of this occurring more than once during the lifetime of a given suit is extremely low. Also, testing indicates that the radiation suit will NOT work on a damaging floor of Type 11.
This item is not included in the items percentage displayed at the end of each level.
The radiation shielding suit is forsaken in Doom 64 for a green glowing radiation symbol (called the "Radiation Shield"). However, its beneficial effects are still the same.
