The tin grenade is a thrown explosive added with the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.


The tin grenade is an improvised explosive device; it is created at a work bench and assembled from scrap to be a thrown explosive device. A tin can is used for both the casing and for shrapnel, pistol powder for the explosive, and duct tape to hold it all together. The tin grenade can be used to complete the Gun Runners' Arsenal challenge called Crackerjack Timing.


This weapon can only be crafted by the player after having taken the Mad Bomber perk. It cannot be obtained otherwise.

¹ Craftable without a workbench via a dialogue option with Veronica, or with ED-E once Lonesome Road is installed.


  • Despite having a lower Explosives skill requirement, the tin grenade outperforms the MFC grenade for damage.
  • Along with gas bombs and MFC grenades, tin grenades are the only explosives that can be consistently used in Dead Money (that is, the ingredients are finite, but plentiful).
  • It shares the same Pip-Boy icon as the powder charge, despite lacking a sensor module.
