Nuka-grenade (Mad Bomber)
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The Nuka-grenade is a powerful improvised explosive device. It incorporates the radioactive properties of a relatively rare Nuka-Cola variant to produce an enhanced plasma blast.

There are very few bottles of Nuka-Cola Quartz in the game (22 in the base game). The Nuka Chemist perk allows the player to create more. More Nuka-Cola Quartz can be found in the Old World Blues and Lonesome Road add-ons.
