The machete gladius (plural "gladii") is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

CharacteristicsEdit

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 attackEdit

It has a special Back Slash attack that does 70% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 4 fewer action points (requires a Melee Weapons skill of 50).

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.

DurabilityEdit

The machete gladius can successfully strike about 370 times from full condition before breaking.

Behind the scenesEdit

Despite sharing a name with the Roman Gladius, the blades in the Mojave Wasteland do not follow the same pattern, instead being curved and having an indentation[1]
