Blood-Nap is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on .
Blood-Nap is a unique variant of the
Bowie knife that does bonus critical damage, gives a bonus critical chance and adds +10 to Sneak.
This weapon qualifies as an
improved holdout weapon.
Special attack Edit
It has a
special "Blood-Nap" attack, which does 80% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 7 fewer action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).
Legend - Type of attack - Skill required - Damage per attack in V.A.T.S. - Action point cost - Damage per action point - Additional effects
Normal 0 60 17 3.53 Blood-Nap 50 48 10 4.8
Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.
It is possible to
execute "Blood-Nap" 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.
Blood-Nap can successfully strike about 495 times from full
condition before breaking.

The Courier's Mile. This weapon becomes accessible only after first completing The Launch. It is found wedged into a street lamp just to your left as you enter the area.
The weapon's Sneak bonus will be shown as "Activated" when the weapon is equipped in an on-screen message.
It is one of the few unique weapons in New Vegas with the same appearance as its non-unique counterpart.
It may glow blue in dark areas.
Blood-Nap does more damage and has a higher DPS than even Chance's knife, making this an extremely formidable single-handed bladed weapon.
Blood-Nap's Sneak +10 does not act as a bonus, but rather as a raise in Sneak, i.e., if the player character has it equipped when they level up, some perks that require a higher Sneak, such as Mister Sandman, and the player character doesn't have the required 50 Sneak but only has 40, the perk will be available.
It has the highest critical damage among melee weapons, alongside the protonic inversal axe.
Behind the scenes Edit
The name of this weapon is from "dirt nap," a slang term for being dead. The word is iconic for being used heavily in
