The Daisycutter is a ranged weapon in Fallout 76.

Characteristics

The Daisycutter is a Fat Man equipped with the MIRV launcher mod and usually starts with standard paint. Its legendary effect reduces its weight by 90%.

Because it has the MIRV launcher mod, the Daisycutter needs to be aimed such that the trajectory of the mini nuke reaches apogee above the target, as opposed to aiming such that the mini nuke hits the target or adjacent ground. When a MIRV mini nuke reaches apogee, it stops and splits into four projectiles. These projectiles fall straight down, detonating if they do not hit anything after falling 100 feet or 30 meters.

Variants

Location

This weapon is given as a reward after completing the quest An Organic Solution. Like all other quest rewards, the item scales depending on what level the player is when it is awarded.

Behind the scenes

The name daisycutter, and how it is obtained, is a reference to the daisycutter bombs used by the United States to create helicopter landing zones during the Vietnam War.
