hatchet is a weapon in .
Fallout: New Vegas
It is a hand-axe with a rubber-gripped wooden handle for chopping wood and limbs alike. Unlike
throwing hatchets, these are not balanced for use as a projectile weapon. Hatchets deal an additional 50% Limb Damage.
This weapon qualifies as an
improved holdout weapon.
Special attack Edit
It has a
special attack, which does 70% damage in Back Slash V.A.T.S. at the cost of 5 less action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).
Legend - Type of attack - Skill required - Damage per attack in V.A.T.S. - Action point cost - Damage per action point - Additional effects
Normal 0 32 22 1.45 Back Slash 50 22.4 17 1.32
Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.
It is possible to
execute Back Slash 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 hatchet can successfully strike about 1495 times from full
condition before breaking.
