The Atomic Health is a health item in Duke Nukem 3D and its ports.


The Atomic Health adds 50 points to the player's health when obtained.

Unlike other health items, the Atomic Health will heal the player up to 200 health points, allowing the player's health to increase 100 points beyond the default 100-point maximum. This makes the Atomic Health the most valuable health item in the game.

Also unlike other health items, the Atomic Health can be obtained even when the player's health is already at the maximum value beyond which the item cannot provide any more health points. If obtained when the player already has 200 health points, then the Atomic Health will expire without providing any value to the player.

Because the Atomic Health is the most valuable health item in the game, it is usually found in areas that are well-hidden or difficult to reach.
