Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
A standard pre-war cattle prod. The electrode tips of the weapon deliver an extremely powerful shock that can wound and even kill.— In-game description, Van Buren tech demo

The cattle prod is a weapon that was to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It also featured in the Van Buren tech demo.


Typically used before the Great War as a way to easily herd cattle, it has now been re-purposed for non-lethal use against humans and other wasteland critters. Cattle prods are known to sometimes be modified for a more lethal shock than their base function originally intended.
