machete gladius (plural "gladii") is a weapon in .
Fallout: New Vegas
The wide blade at the head with an indentation into the blade towards the hilt is designed to give more weight to the head of the blade, allowing for more momentum with slashes. Like a machete, it does bonus limb damage. It can be repaired with another machete gladius, or regular
machetes. It has a fairly high DPS due to its speed, which allows up to 3.5 regular attacks per second; combined with its 28 base damage, it readily cuts through most armored enemies.
Special attack Edit
It has a
special attack that does 70% damage in Back Slash V.A.T.S. at the cost of 4 fewer action points (requires a Melee Weapons 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 56 20 2.8 Back Slash 50 39.2 16 2.45
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 Weapons skill of 50 to perform the move) by initiating a power attack (hold attack button) while moving forward.
The machete gladius can successfully strike about 370 times from full
condition before breaking.
