Die Machete ist eine Waffe in Fallout: New Vegas.


The machete appears to be a make-shift weapon, and consists of a lawn mower blade strapped to a wooden handle. It is the primary melee weapon of Caesar's Legion. Besides having a low Strength requirement it also does bonus limb damage, making it a good melee weapon for intermediate players. Holding down the attack button causes the player to swing it around and up at their target.

Additionally, the player has access to the Back Slash V.A.T.S. attack, which costs 16 AP to use (compared to the normal 20) but only inflicts 70% of the machete's normal damage. Unusually for melee weapons, there is no Melee Skill requirement to use this attack.
