A magnetically sealed plasma delivery unit, with detonating explosives. Creates a blast of superheated plasma on contact.

— Fallout 2 In-game description

Plasma grenades are weapons in Fallout and Fallout 2.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Plasma grenades are very rare, but powerful thrown explosives. When detonated, a small explosive in the grenade ruptures the magnetic seal containing a charge of superheated plasma energy.

It is not recommended to use them against the Enclave soldiers as their advanced power armor can absorb around 50-80% damage. However, just about everyone and everything else has a low plasma resistance, making this grenade type the most useful late to end game.
