The Blade of the West is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.

BackgroundEdit

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.

CharacteristicsEdit

A smaller, 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.

Special attackEdit

It has a special Mauler attack, which does only 50% damage in 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.

DurabilityEdit

The Blade of the West can successfully strike about 745 times from full condition before breaking.
