A magnetically sealed plasma delivery unit, with detonating explosives. Creates a blast of superheated plasma on contact.

— Fallout 2 In-game description

Plasma grenades are weapons in Fallout and Fallout 2.


Plasma grenades are very rare, but powerful thrown explosives. When detonated, a small explosive in the grenade ruptures the magnetic seal containing a charge of superheated plasma energy.

It is not recommended to use them against advanced power armor as it can absorb around 50-80% damage. However, just about everyone and everything else has a low plasma resistance, making this grenade type the most useful late to end game.


Fallout 2Edit

  • Used by the Hubologists. In random encounters featuring five standing in a circle, one is guaranteed to have several on their person. Unlike most other situations, failing a steal does not provoke them into hostility or damaging Karma/reputation, making plasma grenades potentially more plentiful than frag grenades.
  • Sometimes used by mercenaries in random encounters.
  • Sometimes by the Enclave.
