The dress cane is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


The dress cane is a melee weapon carried by the members of the White Glove Society. Like all things owned by the White Gloves, it is in excellent condition, and is made of a sturdy, shiny black wood with an ivory handle. It cannot be walked with and is always held as a weapon, even when walking slowly.

Special attack

It has a special Lights Out attack that does 125% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 8 more 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 Lights Out 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.


The dress cane can successfully strike about 245 times from full condition before breaking.


It can be found on most White Glove Society members in the Ultra-Luxe.
