Long barrel modEdit

you guys do know that the long barrel mod can't be put on it BECAUSE IT'S ALLREADY ON THERE! my proof? equip the grenade rifle first and then equip thump-thump you will see the change in barrel length...--Uberhunter 11:49, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Wouldnt work even without the barrel unique weapons cant be modded,just saying.

Comparisons = No. Again. Edit

Removed the Trivia header, and everything underneath it. Read the bloody editing guidelines, people. IncompetentMinion 12:37, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Somebody put a trivia title on again.--Adam Sizzler 23:06, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

The rule against comparing guns to real guns seems foolish in this case. --Ze5ro1 04:20, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

Why? If J.E. Sawyer came on the Beth forums tomorrow and said "Yeah, we based Thump-Thump off of a lawn mower combined with an old hose that shot grenades", then it would clearly have never been based on any sort of weapon. Until a developer says something, you get a big fat NO. Nitty Tok. 04:23, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

Damage per second Edit

A DPS of 284.1 ? Isn't it an error ? Someone should change this and put the correct DPS with and without all the perks...

I agree, with an explosives skill of 66, and not adding in perks, im showing DAM 88, DPS 37. Beforetakeoff

284.1 DPS, 652.4 with all assosiated perks/traits... I agree something most be wrong there, I play on Xbox so I can't look it up in the GECK. But there us a explaination I can think of off the top of my head and that is if the in-game DPS don't count the AOE damage into it, since it's 100+ AOE damage that could explain it. - FieryWrath 13:11, August 26, 2011 (UTC)

That's why the DPS (Reload) is also listed. The values are not incorrect. The in-game DPS you see factors in reloading.--SushiSquid 13:19, August 26, 2011 (UTC)

Confused?? Edit

On the details it states: Critical Chance = X1 Spread = 0.8

But on the comparisons section with others it states: Critical Chance = X2.5 Spread = 0.3

Which is correct? And, should the page be corrected? Or, am I confused, if so,

please explain it to me S L O W L Y?  Thanks :)

Yeah, I noticed the same thing too. For now I'm going to assume that the crit chance is x1.0, since there is nothing within the written description that says otherwise. I'm betting that the spread is 0.8 as well. Still, if someone can give us a definite answer, that would be great. --EarthboundD 23:47, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

Anyone else see it? Edit

It is a Russian made M79 grenade launcher. I am gonna put a link here to a wiki page about that one, and put it in trivia. Delete it if you want. Not partial, just think it should have the info. [1]

Read the wiki's editing guidelines before you edit, please. There's even a conversation about weapon speculation higher up the talk page. Great Mara (talk) 05:28, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

why does it always happen to me? I just made one simple change, and now it is having an expression error. Don't know why, I didn't even mess with that. I am EXTREMELY sorry, I have undone the edit, but apparently not fixed the problem. I am so embarrassed to ask this, but can anyone fix it? I am SO SORRY! I didn't mean to mess up the page, just a small piece of trivia. Don't know what happened. Please forgive me.--Mr. Black Ops, out. (talk) 05:34, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

The expression error is related to an infobox issue, any newly edited page experiences it. Richie9999 (talk) 05:37, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

How to fix it? --Mr. Black Ops, out. (talk) 05:40, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

The issue was caused by a wikia update of some sort. We're waiting on a fix from them. Richie9999 (talk) 05:43, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

Again, I am so sorry. It is Identical to it, and I thought that it should go there. click the link, you will see. I read the guidelines. I can't believe this. One dang edit. Thank you.--Mr. Black Ops, out. (talk) 05:45, May 17, 2013 (UTC)


I've moved this note here to discuss it's relevance to the topic:

  • The name Thump-Thump is a reference to one of the nicknames US Servicemen gave the M79 due to it's distinctive report, Thumper.

The M79 is widely known to the US military as the "thumper" [2]. To me this may be a case where the real world name, in this case a very common nickname, may well support the note's inclusion. It is patently obvious to me that the name "Thump-Thump" came from the M79's very common nickname. Please note that we do have a dev's quote stating that the RWWR to the M79 passes policy requirements. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 20:13, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

If we have a dev comment saying that the RWWR is for all intents and purposes an M79, then we can safely assume that it makes the same sound, and thus allows this reference here. Agent c (talk) 20:19, July 19, 2013 (UTC)
I can ask J.E. Sawyer for you guys, if you'd like. --TwoBearsHigh-Fiving Intercom01 20:20, July 19, 2013 (UTC)


It is confirmed! --TwoBearsHigh-Fiving Intercom01 20:35, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

Good that it's confirmed, but wouldn't this belong more in Behind the scenes over Notes? It is based off the real world nickname. Paladin117>>iff bored; 23:26, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

No double velocity. Edit

It appears Thump-Thump, despite showing an extended barrel (appears to have the long barrel mod integrated into unique rifle design), perhaps does not fire 40mm grenades as double velocity. I just tested the grenade launcher against a modded mercenary's grenade launcher (with long barrel mod) and Thump-Thump back to back to back halfway up the hill to Mojave Outpost. The grenade lobbed out of the modded mercenary rifle appeared to explode further down the hill in my game while both the grenade launcher and Thump-Thump launched grenades exploded at the same point but closer to my character. Can anyone else verify this finding to corroborate my assertion? 06:07, July 23, 2014 (UTC)Eviltrain (Signed up 10 minutes ago 7-22-14 11:04pm PST. Still waiting for confirmation email.)
