The Nuclear Wasteland is a biome added by NuclearCraft. It is a dangerous radiated wasteland where the player gets radiation when close to the biome. A maximum of 250 mRad/t can be accumulated while inside the biome. If the player reaches a radioactive contamination of 1000 Rad, they die.
The only plant that grows here is the Glowing Mushroom. The soil consists of Wasteland Earth and Stone and is not usable for agriculture. It does not have any precipitation.
