A grenade is a thrown weapon that appears in all of the Fallout games. Most contain an explosive payload designed to inflict damage in a wide blast radius. Certain grenade models are more effective against some targets, and less effective against others.

ModelsEdit

Frag grenadeEdit

Fo1 frag grenade

A generic fragmentation grenade. Contains a small amount of high explosives, the container itself forming most of the damaging fragments. Explodes on contact.

Pulse grenadeEdit

Fo1 pulse grenade

An electromagnetic pulse grenade, generating an intense magnetic field on detonation. Doesn't affect biological creatures. Contact fuze.

Plasma grenadeEdit

Fo1 plasma grenade

Plasma grenades, as their name suggests, emit a powerful burst of plasma energy when detonated, as opposed to using chemical explosives like those in a frag grenade.

Holy Hand GrenadeEdit

Fo2 Holy Hand Grenade
Gameplay article: Fallout 2

The Holy Hand Grenade is a unique weapon. This weapon is enormously powerful when compared to a standard frag grenade. "A Holy relic of godly might."

Holy Frag GrenadeEdit

HolyGrenadeFNV
Gameplay article: Fallout: New Vegas

Three Holy Frag Grenades can be found in Fallout: New Vegas. They are found in Camp Searchlight, in a basement filled with golden geckos, and can only be obtained if the player has the Wild Wasteland trait. They have the power of a hand-propelled mini nuke.

Nuka-grenadeEdit

Nuka-grenade
Gameplay articles: Fallout 3, Gun Runners' Arsenal

A Nuka-grenade is a craftable custom weapon in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, which exploits the explosive properties of Nuka-Cola Quantum when mixed with some common household chemicals. It does more damage than a standard frag grenade, and explodes in a colorful periwinkle fireball. Oddly enough it makes the sound a Nuka-Cola makes when dropped, equipped, etc.

Bio-gas canisterEdit

PulseGrenade
Gameplay article: Point Lookout

This grenade does not explode by itself, but instead releases highly-flammable bio-gas vapors upon hitting the ground. The vapors can then be ignited from a distance with an energy or incendiary weapon, causing the leaking gas to erupt in a spectacular fireball. In this way, they function as portable gas-leaks. Added in the Point Lookout add-on.

Cryo grenadeEdit

CryoGrenade
Gameplay article: Mothership Zeta

Cryo grenades do only one point of damage, but release frigid Liquid Nitrogen upon detonating, freezing any opponents caught in the blast, and rooting them in place for several seconds. Added in the Mothership Zeta add-on.

Incendiary grenadeEdit

IncendiaryGrenadeTactics

Incendiary grenades release a blast of burning material on detonation, making it especially effective against fleshy foes. Super-Mutants and Robots are significantly less affected by the blast.

AN-205 incendiary grenadeEdit

IncendiaryGrenadeFNV
Gameplay article: Fallout: New Vegas

The incendiary grenades that appears in the Mojave Wasteland, release a blast of burning material on detonation, making it especially effective against fleshy foes. Super mutants and robots are significantly less affected by the blast.

Flash BangEdit

Flash bang
Gameplay article: Lonesome Road

A less-lethal alternative to a traditional grenade. Flash bangs deal very little physical damage, but the blinding light and deafening bang it creates deal significant Fatigue damage.

Tin GrenadeEdit
