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.
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).Bayonets for
