Holy Hand Grenade
A Holy relic of godly might.”— Fallout 2 In-game description
It looks a lot more old-fashioned than the frag grenade and also has a small cross on the top.
- It's possible to acquire this weapon in a special encounter where 4 or 5 knights in T-51b power armor are fighting a rat. Sneak past them into the cave or wait until the battle is finished. The rat can't be killed except when you hit its eyes. The Grenade is in the cave behind it.
Behind the scenes
- The weapon is a reference to Monty Python and the Holy Grail, specifically the weapon therein known as the "Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch".
- The rat is a reference to the killer rabbit from the same movie.
- The encounter with King Arthur and the Vorpal Rat is unrollable, due to a bug in the encounter script. The same broken script also causes the Cafe of Broken Dreams to be rerolled several times.
