The AN-205M incendiary grenade (Model 0531) is a thrown explosive in Fallout: New Vegas.


A self-contained incendiary bomb, the Army/Navy 205M incendiary hand grenade is a multi-purpose weapon that can be used to damage, immobilize or destroy a variety of targets including weapons, ammunition, vehicles and soft targets. Unlike conventional incendiary grenades, relying on thermate mixtures designed for use as a tool, the AN-205M uses a modern combat mixture that allows it to be used offensively. Upon detonation, the sheet metal casing disintegrates, creating an incendiary blast in a two yard or 1.8 meter[1] radius. The burning mixture sticks to targets like napalm, continuing to deal fire damage until it burns out several seconds later.

This grenade is an improved holdout weapon.



  • If an enemy is killed by the explosion, said enemy is hurled high into the air, along with being set on fire.
  • Despite being an incendiary grenade and setting enemies on fire, the up-front damage done is explosive, so may not benefit as significantly as one would expect from Pyromaniac.
