Heavy Incinerator (Fallout: New Vegas)

FO76 publicteam xpd.pngFor an overview of the topic, see Heavy Incinerator.

The Heavy Incinerator is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


Visually, the Heavy Incinerator is similar to the regular Incinerator, but with an additional fuel tank and hose attached to the side. Firing at a faster rate than its smaller cousin, its rate of fire is equivalent to the Heavy Incinerator in Fallout 3. Like the Incinerator, it lobs large fireballs in a large arc similar to the Grenade Machinegun. It has greater range and damage compared to the regular Incinerator, but less accuracy.

It is affected by the Meltdown perk.


The Heavy Incinerator can fire a total of about 995 times using standard fuel, the equivalent of 42 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

  • This weapon can be repaired with the standard Incinerator.
  • Despite it mounting two more fuel tanks than the Incinerator, there is no corresponding increase in fuel capacity.
  • The Flamer and Incinerator also fire exactly the same amount of fuel before breaking.


  • PCPC In V.A.T.S., it fires in a burst of three shots, but only uses one unit of ammunition.
  • Xbox 360Xbox 360 When getting an Incinerator to repair the Heavy Incinerator, it sometimes may not let you repair it. Removing both weapons from your inventory will fix this problem.
  • PCPC The Heavy Incinerator's projectile will not deal impact damage; only damage from the explosion is applied. This is an engine bug that effects all explosive projectiles, including Missile Launchers and Fat Mans.
