For the garden gnome in Fallout 4, see Garden gnome (Far Harbor).

The garden gnome is one of three types of garden gnomes found in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.


Garden gnomes come in four sizes: large, normal, medium and tiny. They are useful only as Rock-It Launcher ammunition or as a decoration. Normal-sized gnomes are by far the most common and stand about 1.75 feet tall. Medium versions of both intact and damaged gnomes exist, and only stand about 6 inches high. Gnomes can sometimes be found interacting with teddy bears, aligned in certain positions, playing certain roles.

  • Dropping them after putting them into your inventory then picking them back up will revert them to their default size.
  • If you have one gnome in your inventory already, any others you pick up will automatically revert to default size.
  • If placed upside-down on their heads, garden gnomes will stay perfectly balanced on their own and remain upside down while hovering a short distance above the surface they are placed on.
