The Chopper is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas, and is the unique variant of the typical cleaver.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Chopper is an aged and rusted version of a cleaver with white tape wrapped around the handle, and with the blade curved upward. Additionally, it deals more damage than a normal cleaver, including higher Critical Hit and limb damage.

Special attackEdit

It has a special Back Slash attack, which does 70% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 5 fewer Action Points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.

It is possible to execute Back Slash 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.

DurabilityEdit

The Chopper can successfully strike about 1,245 times from full condition before breaking.

VariantsEdit

Cleaver, the standard variant found throughout the Mojave Wasteland.
