NotesEdit

  • The dog tag fist is notable for its total lack of requirements: it only requires a Strength of 1 and no skill in Unarmed.
  • Each dog tag belonged to Sgt. James Merish, from the 452nd Battalion in Irvine, California. Apparently, he had a blood type of O-negative.
  • Even though the requirement to build it is 20 dog tags, the Courier only uses three of them for each hand, six in total.
  • The dog tag fist may be a reference to the 2008 film Mutant Chronicles, in which one of the main characters uses his chain of dog tags as a weapon.
  • Dog tag fists cannot be manipulated/lifted to be placed on a shelf, etc, they can only be picked up or dropped.
  • Since the NCR dogtags won't be removed from the player upon entering the Sierra Madre, it's possible to craft the dog tag fist while in the Sierra Madre. This is useful if you prefer them over the Bear trap fist.
