Hardened knuckle grip that is actually made out of steel. They protect your hand, and do more damage, in unarmed combat.

Brass knuckles are a set of Unarmed weapons in Fallout and Fallout 2.


In Fallout 2, one can find spiked knuckles early in the game. Their light weight coupled with reasonable value means that if the player character has an adequate Barter skill, they can make a respectable profit looting these from fallen foes. As they are far more common than firearms in the lower levels, the collection and resale of brass knuckles can provide a much-needed early-game source of income.



Fallout 2

  • Dunton brothers Buck and Chuck have one each upon initiating combat and/or dialogue.
  • Carried by one of Myron's guards.
  • Hoss carries these.


Should either Dunton brother be robbed of his spiked knuckles, the next time combat starts they will be given another set.
