- The ability to use modified bowling balls as an ammo type is actually just a mod that can be removed and used on any Fat Man launcher.
- You are able to retrieve the bowling balls that have been launched, much like with the Junk Jet.

- A good supply of bowling balls can be found in the bowling alley at the General Atomics Galleria.
