Boxing tape is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics

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 unconscious in the traditional sense. However, boxing tape will add additional HP damage to compensate for the ineffectiveness of fatigue damage.
