This page is about Fallout 3 non-player weapons only. For all Fallout 3 weapons, see Fallout 3 weapons.

Non-player weapons; Fallout 3's Gamebryo engine requires all non-player characters, characters, and script effects to use a weapon to shoot a projectile. Some of these "weapons" are only meant to be used by the non-player character but can be obtained via console commands.

The same is true for the default weapons used by followers; while usually different from their standard counterparts, they are not meant to be used by the player character either.

When fired, the missile has extremely fast speed, and shows rocket-propelled thruster animation from the back of each missile. Rads in the center of the explosion are +30/sec. Should be cautious, as this projectile can go outside the render distance. Once the missile hits an object, another sound effect will play, this is the "Wind" sound effect from the explosion.
