Hockey masks are pieces of headwear in Fallout 3. Covering the face, they are off-white with red and blue stripes on it and have a worn appearance.


The benefits to the wearer of the hockey mask is that their Unarmed skill is raised by 5 points when equipped.



Behind the scenes

  • The mask's main shape is based upon the mask worn by former NHL goaltender Jacques Plante.
  • The 5 point skill increase in Unarmed is likely a reference to the fact that some hockey players have a tendency to get into fist-fights during a game. The involvement of a goalie in such altercations is very rare however.
  • The markings on the mask bear a striking resemblance to the "war paint" used by the street gang in Death Wish 3. This could be a coincidence, but due to the same colors and markings used it could be an unintentional design. Also, hockey masks in game are normally used by raiders who share much in common with the street gangs of Death Wish 3.

It is possible to repeat this indefinitely, meaning that if you have the dedication, you will be able to kill a super mutant behemoth with one punch on very hard difficulty setting. [verified]
