The frag grenade is a thrown explosive in Fallout: New Vegas.


The standard thrown explosive device used by militaries worldwide before the Great War,[citation needed] the frag grenade causes a lethal blast sending metal shrapnel flying in all directions up to 35 meters.[citation needed] To throw the frag grenade, simply press the Fire button, the longer it is held the farther the grenade will go. The arc at which the player is throwing it is also a major factor for determining the distance it will travel and land.

This weapon qualifies as an improved holdout weapon.

  • In V.A.T.S., if enemies are about to throw a grenade (of any kind) you can shoot it and it will explode, causing the enemy and anyone around it to be damaged by the explosion.
  • Three grenades can be recovered from a grenade bouquet, like in Zion Canyon or Sierra Madre with an Explosives skill of 30 or more.
