A plasma grenade is a thrown weapon that appears in all of the Fallout games. Plasma grenades release a burst of ionized plasma gas when detonated, rather than the typical explosion propelling fragments of normal hand grenades. This intense cloud of super-heated plasma can reduce targets to a puddle of green goo.

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.

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.

MFC grenadeEdit
