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; which 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, the pistol powder for the explosive, and the duct tape to hold it all together. The tin grenade can be used to complete a 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 found on enemies or in containers.
