So I was exterminating a massive infestation of fungus I ran across while exploring, and suddenly I had the terrifying mutation, there were robots attacking me, and I saw a “generator” which was “fleeing”. I was in the middle of a forest, so I found this strange. I checked my status and it showed that I had a fungal infection and was hallucinating.
I popped some anti-fungal medication and rapidly stopped tripping balls, but I’d like to know how I caught it in the first place?
For one thing, I was wearing full basic power armor, with both helmet and armor in reinforced condition. This should be providing complete environmental isolation right?. Secondly, none of the fungal critters or spores ever got close to melee range. I was using a fusion blaster rifle to lay waste to the infested areas, and lighting fires on every fungal tile I found that wasn’t going to be immolated by the blazes caused by my rifle.
