Blade of the West
crit % mult
Blade of the West is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on .
These are the blades crafted by former Caesar's legionaries after they became
marked men. Each is basically a crude imitation of Legate Lanius' Blade of the East, acting as a symbol they can hold on to while enduring the pain inflicted by The Divide.
A shorter, stronger variant of the
bumper sword. It is slightly weaker than the Blade of the East, held by Lanius, though it has a higher DPS. It is cleaner in appearance than the bumper sword and Blade of the East, with a polished blade and without rope connecting the bumper and pipe.
It has a
special attack, which does only 50% damage in Mauler V.A.T.S. at a cost of 9 more action points, but has the chance to knock enemies down.

Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.
It is possible to
execute Mauler outside of V.A.T.S. (without the required Melee skill of 50 to perform the move) by initiating a power attack (hold attack button) while moving forward.
The Blade of the West can successfully strike about 745 times from full
condition before breaking.
