Kipple was a type of radioactive material.

Such material surrounded the city of Los Angeles as of November 2019. Specials were assigned to clear the kipple, though Dr. Eldon Tyrell put forward the idea of giving the task to replicants.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Kipple as it is mentioned in the 1997 Blade Runner video game is a conflation of the concepts of kipple and dust from Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. Like the novel's kipple, it is described as a buildup of debris, but the radioactive aspect is derived from the dust.
