Missiles are a type of ammunition in .
Fallout: New Vegas
Guided explosives used by the
missile launcher. Due to an engine bug, all non-hitscan projectiles such as Missiles do no impact damage outside of VATS.
Weapons using this ammunition Edit
Missile, high explosive Edit
HE 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
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 with the missile launcher.
Missile, hive Edit
A sub-type added with the
add-on that shoots a "hive" of 9 smaller missiles.

Missiles, like all forms of ammunition, have no weight. When playing on Hardcore mode however, they become extremely cumbersome, making the missile launcher a somewhat impractical weapon. As of the 126.96.36.1992 patch all missiles now weigh half as much as they previously did, at 1.5 lbs, and now 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.
