Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics

In Fallout 2, the Chosen One starts out with only a spear, making melee Weapons an important skill at early stages of the game. Most melee weapons can be either swung or thrust. Thrust attacks are limited to certain melee weapons, and they typically deal more damage than swung attacks, occasionally at the expense of an additional action point depending on the weapon. Some melee weapons can also be thrown.
