Lead Belly is a Fallout 3 Perk.

With the Lead Belly perk, you take 50% less radiation every time you drink from an irradiated water source.


  • The usefulness of this perk is debatable, as Rad-Away and Rad-X become fairly common items later on in the game. In addition, several types of apparel, including some types of Power Armor, have radiation resistance.
  • The Rad Resistance perk is a better choice for it works on the water sources and other sources (like foods). For example: Taking Lead Belly brings the 5 rads/sec fire hydrants to 2 rads/sec but doesn't effect things such as Nuka Cola. The Rad Resist perk added to the character's base 10% (assuming 5 endurance) gives 35% resistance. With 35% resists the same fire hydrant is lowered to 3 rads/sec plus Nuka Cola's 2 rad/sec is lowered to 1 and all wasteland radiation sources are resisted.
