Icon cut content.pngThe following is based on Fallout New Vegas cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
  • The Great Bear grenade rifle originally appeared as cut content texture and meshes in the game files of Old World Blues, named as scorpion rifle, along with the projectiles.

  • The only way to access this weapon is to nuke the Long 15 at the end of Lonesome Road.
  • This weapon is heavier than the Red Victory grenade rifle, but makes up for it by doing more damage.
  • This weapon is not affected by Grunt, because addon content is unable to interact with content from a different addon.
    • JSawyer adds the Great Bear to the Grunt list, but requires all add-ons to work.


Behind the scenes

The grenade rifle is based on the real world M79 grenade launcher[1] from the early sixties.
