The corrosive glove is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


The corrosive glove is similar in appearance to the scientist glove, except it is covered with an unknown, highly corrosive green chemical. Despite having a slower rate of attack, the glove inflicts acid damage upon a critical hit. In addition to the damage caused by the initial attack, the acid will continue to drain HP for a few seconds afterwards. Unlike a poison, which only affects living things, the acid will harm both organic and robotic enemies.


  • Scientist glove, the common variant.
  • Sterilizer glove, a quasi-unique red variant that sets targets on fire following a critical hit.
  • Dr. Klein's glove, a unique variant that used to belong to Dr. Klein (when he still had use for it) that lowers a targets Strength and DT against energy weapons upon a critical hit.
  • Dr. Mobius' glove, a unique variant that used to belong to Dr. Mobius (back when he had arms) that is significantly more damaging and frenzies targets upon a critical hit.
