The drill is a melee weapon in Fallout 76.


The Stenley Drill-O-Matic is an average power drill fitted with a drill bit. The motor runs via an attached 18 volt battery, and when operated, sparks and black smoke come out of the cooling vents as if the motor grinding or is worn out. The Drill-o-Matic is inscribed with "U.S.A" near the drill bit and "Made in America" on the back of the battery. The product's name is written across the top, and the voltage indication is labeled at the bottom.

The drill is an automatic melee weapon which deals constant damage to a target, and is only available as a level 20 weapon.
