Thermite burns as hot as the devil's asshole and can melt through just about anything. I've been keeping it so if the Family betrays me I can hopefully do some damage before I end up dead or in jail.”— Troike
Thermite is a metallic composition of aluminum powder and iron oxide, which produces an exothermic oxidation-reduction reaction known as a thermite reaction, used in demolition and to melt through metals.
In the quest How Little We Know, Troike mentions he made enough thermite to destroy the entire Omerta weapons stockpile with the tampered light in the basement of Gomorrah. By activating the weapon caches, thermite is used despite never being in your inventory.
- The Courier: "What can we do to take care of the guns?"
Troike: "As a little pet project I've been making some thermite. Thermite burns as hot as the devil's asshole and can melt through just about anything. I've been keeping it so if the Family betrays me I can hopefully do some damage before I end up dead or in jail."
The Courier: "Give me the Thermite and I'll destroy the weapons."
Troike: "Okay, here's the Thermite and a key to the room where the guns are stored. Place the Thermite on the crates in the room. I rigged the light switch outside the room to kick off a spark big enough to hold the Thermite. That should turn that shit into molten slag. As soon as we're done talking I'm going to make myself like a ghost. I don't want to be anywhere near here when the bosses find out."
