Playing Fallout 3 after finally getting around to buying it and I've gotten the repellant stick. Then I go to do the Robco mission, which is just filled with things to hit the with a stick, and every single radroach I've smacked has, without fail, exploded. I know I have the perk which causes things to occasionally explode but from what I know it shouldn't be this consistent. I checked the wiki to make sure it was the stick, and it wasn't just mole rats that explode, but the wiki insists it really is just mole rats that explode when hit with the Repellant Stick. Is my game being retarded or am I just getting the weirdest luck with my explosion perk?

  • it's a Repellent Stick for mole rats, it wasn't supposed to cause their heads to explode in the first place. i would just pass it off as one of the "unforeseen side effects" Moria didn't account for (like the allergenic side effects which causes exploding mole rat heads) – Memor-X Feb 24 '15 at 3:29
  • @Memor-X It is explicitly only supposed to explode Mole Rats according to the game. – Selonianth Feb 24 '15 at 4:15

Radroaches are just fragile in general. It may just be a coincidence.

  • Maybe but most of the time they just kinda flop and stay still after death. Not explode in a green gooey explosion. – Selonianth Feb 24 '15 at 4:16
  • Then it's probably just a bug on the game's end. You didn't think you'd be able to play Fallout 3 without bugs, did you? – SnowZeroSix Feb 24 '15 at 12:53
  • @Selonianth - What level are you? I find Radroaches explode with pretty much any weapon + the 'Bloody Mess' perk over about level 15 – Robotnik May 25 '15 at 1:45
