The fire bomb is a thrown explosive in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.

CharacteristicsEdit

It is a Molotov cocktail made out of a Sunset Sarsaparilla bottle, filled with a flammable substance and stuffed with a rag to ignite it. It will also turn enemies into piles of green goo if the killing blow is a Critical Hit, similar to that of plasma-based energy weapons.

LocationsEdit

NotesEdit

  • The fire bomb and the Sunset Sarsaparilla bottle vary in several ways, although they are supposedly the same object. The most notable variations are the bottles' lengths and the fact that the drink's label is single and wraps all the way around, while the weapon's does not. The bottle also has a different coloration than that of the drink.
  • Fire bombs also provide an alternative (and somewhat hilarious) version of the Exploding Pants trick. Instead of your target exploding (as with other explosives), they will erupt into flames and collapse. If your target is knocked down, they will simply erupt into flames on whatever they were lying on.
  • They can be tricky to use, since like a grenade, they do not go off on contact, so they can bounce away from your target. Also, they have a small effect radius. These two combined make them difficult to use outside of V.A.T.S.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The fire bomb is based off a home-made explosive known as a Molotov cocktail.[citation needed]
