The Irradiation Beta is a support power used by Russia and Latin Confederation from a Nuclear Converter that does as its name suggests by temporarily irradiating friendly Tesla/Shock Troopers, Desolators, and vehicles with constant nuclear radiation that damages nearby enemies while the radiation field lasts. Irradiation also works on cyborgs (including Volkov and Chitzkoi), Clairvoyants and Duplicants.

China have access to the longer-lasting Irradiation Gamma instead.
