The bayonet and large bayonet is a muzzle weapon mod for the hunting rifle and missile launcher in Fallout 4.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Increases bash damage. Negative effects include a decrease in range. Bayonets increase bashing damage by 50% for small bayonets and 100% for the larger form, raising the base damage from 6 to 12 on hunting rifles, which is slightly above the damage dealt by unarmed humans (8). This damage increase improves with the Basher perk and increasing levels of Strength.

Nuka-World (add-on) Bayonets for handmade rifles provide a 100% bash damage increase, with large bayonets applying 125% instead. This can be further improved with the large serrated bayonet modification for a total of +150% bash damage (the most that can be achieved by any ranged weapon, with barrel upgrades).

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Raiders, Gunners and super mutants occasionally have this mod equipped on their hunting rifles or missile launchers if they are above level 8.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite the fact that bayonets double bashing damage, the DPS of such attacks will still be lower than that of most melee weapons in the game.
