Boxing tape is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


Of the three boxing weapons (boxing tape, boxing gloves, and the Golden Gloves), boxing tape has the highest durability and the highest base damage, at 500 and 4, respectively.

Like its counterparts, boxing tape can inflict fatigue damage, in order to knock an opponent out, rather than kill them. However, boxing tape inflicts the least fatigue damage of the three.

Additionally, fatigue damage cannot be inflicted on robots, as robots cannot be 'knocked senseless' in the traditional sense. However, boxing tape will add additional HP damage to compensate for the ineffectiveness of fatigue damage.
