The Fat Man Little Boy kit is a weapon mod for the Fat Man in Fallout: New Vegas.


This mod decreases the weapon's weight by 50%, lowering it from 30 lbs to 15. Visually, it significantly reduces the length of the launch piston assembly, replaces the trigger and guard with a single larger lever, replaces some metal parts of the launch rail with plastics, and also changes the color of some components to red.



Behind the scenes

  • Fat Man and Little Boy were the names of the two atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima (August 6) and Nagasaki (August 9), Japan during the end of the World War II, when the Japanese forces surrendered to America on Aug 14th, 1945.
  • In the Japanese version, the name "Fat Man" is changed to "Nuka Launcher," yet the Little Boy kit's name remains the same.

Since this is not done automatically by the game, you'll need to drop it, give it to a companion, or place it in a container, then take it back. [verified]
