[v·e] 1173 Reactor Small arma.gif
This terrifying building came from a soviet submarine and sends powerful bolts of electricity arcing around the town with a deafening crackle. The only "hitch" is that it has to be repaired daily. If it is destroyed, the town and its surroundings are instantly vaporized, wiping everything off the map (where you'll be). The label reads: soviet design, assembled in « вшивый ».

Don't ask how a nuclear reactor kills 500 zombies a day. It just does. The risk is that this thing could go off at any second. If a meltdown does occur, the whole town will explode and you will be vaporised instantly by the radiation and heat. On the bright side, so will all the zombies around here.


  • Building it gives 500 Small def.gif to the town.
    • The defence provided may decrease depending on the state of the Reactor.


  • Each night, the Reactor takes damage points (similar to all buildings in R suhard.gifR suhard.gifHardcore Hardcore towns). The amount of damage possibly depends on the attack magnitude, but may be random.
    • Supposedly 0 - 250 points per night. Current record is 50 - 125. (Update records on talk page)
  • The Reactor loses twice as much defence as damage points. For example, a fully-repaired Reactor gives 500 Small def.gif, but a Reactor that has taken 97 damage will give only 304 Small def.gif.
  • The damage is done to the reactor before the attack, which means it will never give the full 500 defence.
  • This also means that the reactor blows up before zombies enter the town.(Confirmed -- Cethegus 14:42, 3 September 2013 (PDT))
  • You can repair the Reactor - 1 Small pa.gif will repair 2 damage points. In other words, up to 125 Small pa.gif is needed to fully repair the Reactor every day.
    • As the Reactor is repaired, the defence will increase again, until it is fully repaired, when it will give 500 Small def.gif.
    • In conclusion, the Reactor has 500 Small def.gif when it has 250 health points, which can in theory be fixed from 0 points to full with 125 Small pa.gif.
  • If the Reactor's defence points reach zero (250 points of damage), the town is destroyed.
    The whole region has been irradiated by the destruction of the Reactor!
  • The Reactor's production site roughly translates into "Lousy". No official info is shared on the matter, so the translation is debatable.
