    Every time I use any weapon from the explosives category, they do no damage. In fact, the only time they do damage is if I target a creature's/npc's head in VATS. Otherwise I don't do any damage.

    Is there an explanation/fix?

    I have encountered this bug once. I think it is a VATS glitch.

    There is a bug where non-hitscan projectiles with explosions on impact do not apply projectile damage, only explosion damage. Since the missile launcher does not shoot hitscan projectiles, it is affected by this bug.


    No fix really. Try loading a previous save and see if that helps.

    That sucks dick. Reloading doesn't do shit. The explosions don't do any damage either. It sucks because the red glare is one of my favorite weapons.
