The lead pipe is a melee weapon in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4 and Van Buren.

Although not a highly damaging weapon, it is a good choice for low-level player characters because of its moderate damage and quick rapid attacks.

VariantsEdit

Lead pipeEdit

Lead pipe VB

The lead pipe is a widely available, inexpensive, starting melee weapon. One of the ends has tape wrapped around it to improve grip, while the other is heavily corroded and/or bloodstained, and topped with a pipe fitting.

The Humble CudgelEdit

The Humble Cudgel
Gameplay article: Fallout: New Vegas

The Humble Cudgel is a unique version of the lead pipe. It is less corroded, and has a T fitting on the end similar to a mallet. Its middle section is also slightly bent. The Humble Cudgel deals an extra 4 damage over its non-unique counterpart, and uses 3 less AP per attack when wielded in V.A.T.S. It also has 50% more item HP than the standard lead pipe. However, it has a somewhat shorter reach than a regular lead pipe; most likely a result of the kink in the main section of the pipe itself.
