12 Gauge Thermite slug

A frangible pellet of compressed thermite powder designed to shatter on impact into a flammable cloud that can be remotely ignited.

This is a custom ammunition type created especially for the NIF-Bashed Weapons Mega-Pack.


All weapons chambered in 12 Gauge can fire this ammunition.

The clouds of thermite dust can be ignited by almost every incendiary ammo type, including the following:

The .50 MG, Incendiary ammo type is unable to detonate the cloud because its projectile does not produce a damage-dealing explosion on impact. I don't want to hard-edit the record out of fear of introducing compatibility issues with other mods, but if you're handy with the GECK, you can fix it by following these steps:

  • Load the 50MGRifleBulletProjectile record and check the 'Explosion' tickbox, making sure the 'Trigger on Impact' radio button is selected
  • From the 'Type' drop-down menu, scroll down to aaaEXPLFakeForceDamageR25 and select it
  • Click 'OK' and save the plugin

This will attach a dummy explosion that only deals 1 damage to anything within a radius of 25 game units, which is small enough that it shouldn't affect vanilla behavior to any noticable degree, but will allow the projectile to detonate thermite clouds.
