The Fat Man is an effective "grenade launcher-type" weapon, allowing a person to bombard a large area with good precision and deadly force. It uses a mini nuke for ammunition which when fired, results in a small nuclear blast.

Experimental MIRV[edit | edit source]

Gameplay articles:

Although similar to the Fat Man, the experimental MIRV fires eight mini nukes at once instead of one, making it more powerful and with a bigger spread due to multiple-blast radius.

Esther[edit | edit source]

Gameplay article:

Esther is a unique Fat Man with a different rear mechanism, a blast shield, a light-blue body, and a thick glass or plastic bed holding the mini nukes. It weighs 10 pounds more than a standard Fat Man, but does not jam, and protects the user from damage.
