  • These children have sprites for throwing, which means they are also capable of throwing grenades.
  • In versions outside of the US (includes GOG version of Fallout 1), children are taken out to avoid childkilling controversy. However, they can still be killed with explosives as only their sprites were removed.


These children appear in the original Fallout.
