For an overview of 40mm grenade ammunition types in various Fallout games, see 40mm grenade.
40mm grenade is a type of ammunition in .
Fallout: New Vegas
It is a projectile that is fired from a 40mm grenade launcher. These are much bigger than
25mm grenades, but that makes them heavier and harder to fire at great speed. They deal 100 damage in a radius of 11.72 yards (10.72 meters).
Weapons using this ammunition Edit
40mm grenade, incendiary Edit
The 40mm incendiary grenade deals 25% less blast damage up front (but the same amount of impact damage from the grenade itself) and has a 40% smaller blast radius (7.03 yards or 6.43 meters) than the normal 40mm, but it also causes enemies to burst into flames, dealing 6 damage every second over a 15 second period. This damage cannot normally be resisted, so incendiary grenades generally work better on unarmored targets.
40mm grenade, plasma Edit
A sub-type added with the new add-on
. They deal significantly more damage than a 40mm grenade, but have a slightly smaller blast radius.
Gun Runners' Arsenal
Note that despite being plasma-based, this does not result in any AP reduction from
40mm grenade, pulse Edit
A sub-type added with the new add-on
Gun Runners' Arsenal. They deal an incredibly insignificant amount of damage (only 8 points) to targets and have a 50% smaller blast radius, but deal an extra 150 damage to robots and 60 damage to power armor.
