If the opponent cannot be fatigued, the gloves will instead inflict 15 damage to their health. Of the three, the Golden Gloves inflict the most fatigue damage at 50 points, versus the boxing gloves' 35, and the boxing tape's 20.
The Golden Gloves can be found on the casino floor of the Lucky 38 casino, in the VIP Lounge. The lounge is situated at the top of a small staircase to the left upon entering the Lucky 38. They are located on a bookshelf behind the bar, with a framed issue of Boxing Times adjacent to them.
Like boxing gloves and boxing tape, the Golden Gloves inflict a manner of non-lethal injury, in the form of fatigue damage. When an opponent takes too much fatigue damage, they are knocked out instead of killed, though they will recover in time.
Festus and Muggy can be disabled with the Golden Gloves, although most other robots cannot.
When using this set of boxing gloves, it is possible to destroy a turret without it exploding, which results in the turret remaining loot-able.
