Notes[edit | edit source]
- If the Boomers are killed for Mr. House or Caesar's Legion before you are given the Nellis array building key by Raquel, Thump-Thump cannot be obtained. The building's door is unpickable and can only be opened with the key, but it does not appear on her body if she is killed.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- The name is a reference to the nickname "Thumper", given to the real life M79 grenade launcher (which the grenade rifle is based upon) by American soldiers.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
- On some occasions Thump-Thump will not inflict any damage to the target. If this happens you may also not cause any damage while using V.A.T.S.
- In third person view when you run the weapon will fall, holstered or holding, and may "follow" you. It is still visible in first person view. Unequipping it then re-equipping will remedy the problem.
- If a limb is crippled right after firing, you will not have to reload.
