Radioactive Crates is a proven myth in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

Strewn aboard the deck of the Ship the Platypus, are 8 small crates cladded with Cyrillic text, bearing alarming radioactive warning symbols. The text appears on two faces of the crates, with the majority of text repeated. The language has been translated and proved to be of Russian dialect [1].

It is unknown what the crates may hold as no label or logo on their exteriors gives any clue of their contents. It is possible the crates may contain illegal and potentially dangerous materials imported for Liberty City’s Russian Mafia or even for use in Terrorism Acts. It is also possible the warning signs are simply precautionary measures due to the content's Russian and/or Eastern European origin, as they may be lightly contaminated with Radiation as a result of the still prevalent fallout from the 1986 Chernobyl Disaster or the extensive Russian Nuclear Weapons Testing during the Cold War period.
