Ashmaker is gained by completing The Big Dig, regardless of dialogue choices when confronted by Fahrenheit. Fahrenheit will reward the player character with it if they can convince Bobbi No-Nose to leave peacefully or if they kill Bobbi. Otherwise, the weapon can be looted from Fahrenheit if the player character sides with Bobbi.


  • Fahrenheit is an essential NPC, with the exception of the interaction during the events of The Big Dig.
  • Ashmaker is unable to be renamed at a weapons workbench because it is named via The Big Dig's Quest Alias system, the quest alias Fahrenheit_Gun points to 1F252F MS16FahrenheitGunName for its display name. This particular idiosyncrasy is shared by the Survivor's Special. The Silver submachine gun and Grognak's axe also cannot be renamed, however, this is due to leveled list override names rather than quest alias display names.
  • Killing Fahrenheit before she has Ashmaker equipped during The Big Dig might result in Ashmaker not being obtainable.
