Ashmaker is a unique minigun in Fallout 4.


Ashmaker's unique quality is the Incendiary effect, which sets targets on fire and inflicts an additional fifteen points of damage. The bullets produce orange tracers when fired.

Ashmaker is gained by completing The Big Dig, regardless of dialogue choices when confronted by Fahrenheit. Fahrenheit will reward the player character with it if they can convince Bobbi No-Nose to leave peacefully or if they kill Bobbi. Otherwise, the weapon can be looted from Fahrenheit if the player character sides with Bobbi.


  • It is not possible to pickpocket Ashmaker from Fahrenheit even with the highest-level pickpocket perk and syringer assistance (likely due to the way it is awarded - Fahrenheit is not actually holding the weapon at the time)
  • Fahrenheit is an essential NPC, with the exception of the interaction during the events of The Big Dig.
  • Ashmaker is unable to be renamed at a weapons workbench because it is given to the player character as a levelled list, not with a unique ID. This particular idiosyncrasy is shared by only two other weapons - the Survivor's Special, and the Silver submachine gun.
  • Killing Fahrenheit before she has Ashmaker equipped during The Big Dig might result in Ashmaker not being obtainable.
