The Fist of Rawr is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.


The Fist of Rawr is a unique craftable Unarmed weapon. It is the only deathclaw gauntlet available in the game.

Should the Courier have the Wild Wasteland trait, they will craft the Fist of the North Rawr instead. Though it has a different name and a separate form ID, it is otherwise identical to the standard weapon.

Creation requirements

Lonesome Road add-on
Fist of Rawr (1)

¹ Craftable without a workbench via a dialogue option with Veronica, or with ED-E once the Lonesome Road add-on is installed.


This weapon must be crafted and requires an Unarmed skill of 75 and Rawr's Talon, which can only be acquired after defeating Rawr in the Divide. Rawr can be found in a collapsed cave just past the Boxwood Hotel roof, near the pipe that has water spewing out of it.


  • Even though Rawr is dark green, the Fist of Rawr is the color of normal deathclaws.
  • Although the game's description of Rawr's Talon says the claw is "larger and more impressive than those of lesser deathclaws," it is actually smaller than the hand of any variant of deathclaw.
  • Rawr's Talon is a quest item, and therefore cannot be dropped or removed from the player character's inventory. Beginning Dead Money while in possession of it will allow crafting the Fist of Rawr in the Sierra Madre.
  • Although a medical brace is shown on the weapon, one is not needed to craft it.

Behind the scenes

The name of the Wild Wasteland version, "Fist of the North Rawr," is a reference to the post-apocalyptic anime and manga Fist of the North Star (Hokuto no Ken).
