The valence radii-accentuator is a piece of headwear in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


Focusing on unlocking the potential lying in lightwave dynamics, researchers in the Z-38 lightwave dynamics research facility managed to harness light to create computer-controlled holograms capable of acting as shopkeepers, guides and mobile cameras. The project also yielded more outlandish results, such as the valence radii-accentuator and the atomic-valence tri-radii-oscillator, holographic halos capable of boosting the body's metabolism, increasing its regeneration rate and endurance.


The accentuator is a blue, rotating halo that floats around the head of the wearer. It causes the character to appear bald, but it's a purely cosmetic effect. It also adds +1 to Endurance and regenerates 12 HP every in-game hour.

It uses the glasses slot and can be worn with some headgear:


Together with the space suit helmet, it can provide a total DT of 7, one of the highest headgear DT in the game.



Behind the scenes

  • Accentuators are circuits/networks which are designed to reduce the losses or gains in frequencies in the audio spectrum, as a preemphasis spectrum.
  • The design of the accentuator mimics the electron orbital of elements in group IIa of the periodic table.


  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Equipping the accentuator while the player character has the rebreather equipped will remove the item, but the water breathing effect will remain.
