The gas bomb is a placed explosive weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Dead Money.


The gas bomb is an improvised explosive incendiary device. It is constructed from a sensor modules strapped to a fire extinguisher.

The weapon functions like other proximity mines, and will burst into a ball of fire and shrapnel, setting the target alight and causing explosive and fire damage.

It is thrown a short distance when placed, similar to the MFC cluster, instead of being dropped nearby like other mines. Like all other placed explosives, it cannot be used in V.A.T.S.


  • This weapon can be crafted by the player.

  • Ghost people are immune to the fire damage of the weapon; only the explosion hurts them.
  • Despite appearing to do fire damage, the weapon is actually unaffected by the Pyromaniac perk.
  • When thrown, the gas bomb will make noise, potentially alerting nearby enemies.
  • Ghost people will often throw them directly at you, but never in a path before you reach it; in essence, they use them like grenades, as opposed to the mines they truly are.
  • Dropping one on the ground from inventory and shooting it point blank will not detonate this weapon. Using it as a weapon to place one will allow it to be shot and detonated.
  • Dean Domino mentions the gas bombs when you pass a Guns check of 50 when talking to him about dealing with the ghost people.
