The Nuka-grenade is a thrown explosive in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.


The Nuka-grenade is an extremely powerful improvised explosive device. It incorporates the radioactive properties of a relatively rare Nuka-Cola variant to produce an enhanced plasma blast. Upon detonation, the target area also becomes irradiated for a short time afterwards.

This grenade is also a holdout weapon.


This weapon must be crafted by the player. It cannot be found on enemies or in containers. Also, the player must have the Mad Bomber perk to be able to craft it.

Because the recipe requires Nuka-Cola Quartz, only a small number of these grenades can be created in the base game. With the Nuka Chemist perk, many more can be created (though still potentially finite).
