Wake the dragon and turn your enemies into ash piles.— In-game description

The Dragon's Maw is a unique variant of the plasma thrower that is added to Fallout Shelter with the 1.4 update.


While the Dragon's Maw's maximum damage is surpassed only by the Fire hydrant bat by two points, the Dragon's Maw still retains the highest average damage of 25.5, whereas the Fire hydrant bat only has an average damage of 25.

It should be noted that while the Dragon's Maw is the strongest single-target weapon in the game, its damage does not spread to other monsters when the target is overkilled. The strongest AOE weapon for possible total damage is the MIRV, with its damage ranging between 22 and 27 leading to an average damage of 24.5.
