The world model of an atomic cocktail is a novelty drink mixer shaped like a rocket ship, with a black logo on one side shaped like the words "atomic cocktail" surrounding an atom. When consumed the player is resistant to fire and energy weapon damage. Sleep is greatly reduced, while Dehydration and Radiation are increased.

Behind the scenes
The atomic cocktail was an alcoholic drink served (among other places on the strip) during nuclear weapons testing in the 1950s in Sky Rooms, where tourists could view mushroom clouds form at the Nevada proving grounds from a distance. This was a considerable tourist draw from 1951-1963 when Las Vegas was also known as "Atomic City". Las Vegas businessmen had, at the time, a penchant for marketing everything as "atomic".
