The plasma grenade is an explosive weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.
The plasma grenade packs more than twice as much power than the standard frag grenade and, upon detonation, engulfs a 35-foot area with an orb of green plasma. It has the potential to require fewer action points as well, due to the Plasma Spaz perk.
Plasma grenades are one of the safest grenades to throw en masse with Heave Ho! as atomic cocktails can be used to increase energy resistance along with the benefit of high damage threshold, Adamantium Skeleton, Hit the Deck and Tough Guy.
Patch 188.8.131.524 (1.06, for PlayStation 3) increased the radius of plasma and pulse grenades.
- ↑ 750 unit radius, 128 units = 6 feet.
