The Nuka-grenade is a thrown explosive in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.


The Nuka-grenade is an extremely powerful improvised explosive device. It incorporates the radioactive properties of a relatively rare Nuka-Cola variant to produce an enhanced plasma blast. Upon detonation, the target area also becomes irradiated for a short time afterward. The grenade is considered a holdout weapon.


This weapon must be crafted by the Courier using the Mad Bomber perk. It cannot be found on enemies or in containers. The recipe requires Nuka-Cola Quartz, so only a small number of these grenades can be created in the base game. With the Nuka Chemist perk, many more can be created.
