For an overview of dart ammunition in the Fallout series of games, see dart.


Darts are a type of ammunition used exclusively by the dart gun, a craftable pistol in Fallout 3.


They have a needle in the front section, a white center, a red end with flights, and typically come in packs of twenty. When shot from the dart gun, they have been dipped in radscorpion poison and deal damage over time, as well as instantly crippling the legs.

Weapon using this ammunition



  • They are lethal to all humanoid type enemies, and even a deathclaw will be significantly disarmed, as its legs will be crippled, preventing it from its deadly leap attack.
  • Mad Johnny Wes is the only named NPC in the base game carrying darts.
