Fallout and Fallout 2 description

Frag grenades are a thrown weapon in Fallout and Fallout 2.


Frag grenades are muscle-propelled explosives. Fragmentation grenades are pretty rare, and aren't very useful late game, when most enemies have a very high explosive damage resistance. If you can find a few early on, though, they'll pack quite a wallop against weaker raiders and critters. Ideally, the blast radius of a grenade should be used against large groups, like mantises and gold geckoes, to maximize a single grenade's damage potential.[1]


  • Holy Hand Grenade: a unique weapon, enormously powerful and "A Holy relic of godly might."

  1. Vault Dweller's Survival Guide p.5-16: "The fragmentation grenade is extremely useful as a defensive weapon. A small, but concentrated, explosive charge connected to a contact fuze will spread over 1,000 metal fragments over a 2.5 meter radius area. The small explosion area means that these grenades can be used at a closer range than ever before, without possible harm to the user."
