Nails are a type of ammunition in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.


A nail is a pin-shaped, sharp object of hard metal or alloy used as a fastener. This makes for a potentially deadly projectile when propelled at high speeds. Nail gun nails are generally mounted together in a strip or linked in a carrier and are stripped off the carrier at high velocities as they are propelled by the nail gun's actuator.
