The displacer glove is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The displacer glove creates a shock wave upon impact, pushing a target back. It possibly accomplishes this via a sonic blast, shown by the speaker on the knuckle.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite a small energy cell being clearly visible in the glove, it does not require any ammunition, just like the ballistic fist which has a built-in shotgun.
  • If the player character has the Ranger Takedown perk, when performing the leg sweep, the same wave of energy is created when the leg comes into contact with the target even though the fist isn't technically used, which is visible in the third-person view.
  • The shock wave blast of the glove is similar to that of a Gauss rifle.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Sometime before release, displacer gloves, as well as many other fists, were supposed to use energy cells as ammunition, but it wasn't supported by the game engine and there was not enough time for implementation.[1]
