Missiles are a type of ammunition in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Guided explosives used by the missile launcher.

Weapons using this ammunition[edit | edit source]

Variants[edit | edit source]

Missile, high explosive[edit | edit source]

High explosive missiles deal an extra 35% impact damage, though the damage of the explosion itself is unchanged. They also have a 50% larger blast radius.

Missile, high velocity[edit | edit source]

This missile travels at 3.23 times faster than the regular missile, thus meaning it will reach the target quicker, which is helpful in mid-range combat.

Missile, hive[edit | edit source]

A subtype added with the add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal that shoots a "hive" of nine smaller missiles.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Missiles, like all forms of ammunition, have no weight. When playing on Hardcore mode, they become extremely cumbersome, making the missile launcher a somewhat impractical weapon. As of the 1.3.0.452 patch, all missiles weigh half as much as they previously did, at 1.5 lbs, and can be affected by the Pack Rat perk to even further reduce their weight.
  • Missiles can be converted into rockets in any workbench. This process yields two rockets per missile.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

[platforms tag needed] Due to an engine bug, all non-hitscan projectiles such as missiles do no impact damage outside of V.A.T.S. [verification overdue]
