The laser detonator is a "weapon" in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.

Contents

[edit] Background

The laser detonator is a detonator powered with a microfusion breeder and using laser illumination to trigger the nuclear warheads found around the Divide. It fires a series of coded pulses of visible red frequency lasers similar to a laser designator and therefore dealing absolutely no damage to any organic creatures or robots. When the laser is aimed at a nuclear warhead, it causes it to heat up, eventually leading to the chemical explosive inside detonating, scattering radioactive material around.

[edit] Characteristics

It is similar in design and shape to the Compliance Regulator. It has a yellow coloration with red trim at the barrel, and a glowing yellow light next to the keypad and screen.

It fires a continuous beam similar to that of a laser rifle or pistol, except for the duration. It deals absolutely no damage and therefore is useless for anything but destroying nuclear warheads. The laser detonator is a quest item, so it cannot be dropped or sold.

[edit] Locations

[edit] Notes

  • It is highly advisable to stand a safe distance away when detonating a warhead, as they explode violently and may trigger several chain reaction explosions as a result.
  • The screen and lights on the side are identical to the ones found on a Red Glare.
  • It can be dropped through the use of console commands. SetQuestObject xx007670 0 will allow you to drop it to be placed in a container or your house. Player.RemoveItem xx007670 1 will completely remove it from your inventory.
  • Because it is a laser, it can be used to ignite explosive gases.

[edit] Bugs

  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png If you have Euclid's C-Finder, there may be some interaction between it and the laser detonator to the point where the laser detonator will not blow up the warhead. If this occurs, drop the C-Finder, blow up the warhead and pick up the C-Finder again.
