also, i'd like to ask a question, how can he not use his weapons when the radetector is active? im imagining using both hands to hold up some goggles or a tablet computer, but that's boring.
traditionally, radiation is detected and calculated with something called a "Geiger Counter". i had to google that. you point the detector thing at something, and it tells you how irradiated that something is. far as i know, there isnt a camera that can "see" radiation, unless you want to get smart with me and point out visible light is a form of radiation and we have plenty of cameras that can see light.
anyways, say he has 1 of those detector things on each shoulder for triangulation, and he has the geiger counter along with a miniature computer for the calculations to do the triangulation, tracking, and differentiating between radbits on enemies and other rads in the environment, all powered by a hand-cranked electric generator, and he just pulls out this giant hand crank going "ready, set, science!" or something and starts cranking, which would make a funnier reason for why he cant shoot while using the tracker.
this is a funny bit i thought up, since he seems like a funny guy. feel free to ignore this one, tho.
EDIT: okay, after a quick google search, turns out there are cameras that can see radiation. oh well.
