The cleaver is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

CharacteristicsEdit

The cleaver was designed to chop hunks of meat for use in butcher's shops, but has since been repurposed as a melee weapon. It also does bonus damage to limbs.

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