The Incinerator shoots explosive fireballs at your enemies, and you get it by completing the Crucible quest in Fallout 4.

The Incinerator shoots explosive fireballs in Fallout 4, rather than a jet stream of fire. It’s a weapon that has a slow rate of fire. However, the blast damage that it creates makes it a powerful AOE option when you are firing on clusters of enemies.

Incinerator Location and where to find in Fallout 4:

  • Location: Saugus Ironworks
  • Dropped by/Looted From: Follow the steps of the Crucible quest to safely remove the Incinerator from the fiery hot crucible

To get the Incinerator in Fallout 4 you need to complete the Crucible quest and follow the steps to remove the weapon from its location in the hot crucible. The location of the crucible is inside the Saugus Ironworks, which is south of Parson’s State Insane Asylum, or southwest of Salem.

Additionally, the Crucible quest and the Incinerator were formally Creation Club content. However, they have now been added to the base game of Fallout 4.

  • Investigate Saugus Ironworks
  • Read the Keeper’s note and search the toolbox
  • Read the Forged recruit’s note
  • Use the terminal to move the crucible
  • Turn off the flow of liquid metal using the button at the pillar
  • Collect the buried items and craft the Flame Resistance mods
  • Take the Ghoul’s Slayer Heavy Incinerator out of the crucible

How to use Incinerator

The Incinerator weapon handles similarly to a grenade launcher, with a major difference in that it shoots massive fireballs that explode on impact. Moreover, what’s unique about the Incinerator is that it comes with the Ghoul Slayer’s legendary effect. Thus, it will deal 50% more damage against ghouls. That makes the Incinerator’s fire damage a great option for dealing with these enemies, especially as ghouls can attack in larger numbers.

Unfortunately, one negative of this destructive weapon is that there is a risk of the fire damage blast also hurting your HP. You can protect yourself against this in a couple of different ways. First, you could craft a heat shield mod to mitigate damage. Secondly, you could choose instead to make use of the Flame Resistance leg mods for your power armor. Conveniently, these were mods you already had to craft during the Crucible quest before you could claim the Incinerator.
