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 that inflicts acid damage on 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.
