Compared to its standard variant, the Cram Opener deals 7.7% more regular damage and 10% greater critical hit damage. It has 25% more durability and identical weapon critical hit multipliers and AP costs as well. In appearance, the Cram Opener appears much darker in color than the standard variant.
It is held by Little Buster, a soon-to-be-retired bounty hunter, in Camp McCarran. He can typically be found sparring with a practice dummy in between a truck and the camp's tents.
If the quest Three-Card Bounty for Major Dhatri has been completed, Little Buster will leave the camp and go to Freeside, via the north gate. After one or two in-game days, his corpse can be found near the entrance's railroad tracks. The weapon can be looted from his corpse.
Note the railroad tracks are the ones inside of the Freeside gate near the Old Mormon Fort and not the tracks outside the gate.
It is possible to obtain two copies of this weapon by pickpocketing it from Little Buster while he is alive, then looting it from his corpse later.
Without trying to pickpocket the weapon from him, there may be a second copy of this weapon in the inventory of his corpse.
The name of this weapon is a reference to the canned food Cram, a healing item also found in-game. It also is a play on words for the common household can-opener.
This weapon has the icon of a melee weapon when you assign it to the D-pad, even though it is an Unarmed weapon. This also happens with the regular bladed gauntlet.[verified]
If worn while entering the interrogation room Silus is being held in during the Silus Treatment quest, the model will still be shown on your hands. This will continue after you have been returned your weapons, no matter what you currently have equipped. This also happens with the unique unarmed weapon Recompense of the Fallen and boxing tape.[verified]
