Oh, Baby! is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


Oh, Baby! is a unique variant of the super sledge. It is much more powerful than the standard variant and has noticeably larger striking surfaces. Despite its rusted condition, it is one of the most powerful melee weapons in the game.

Special attack

It has a special Mauler attack that does 50% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 8 more action points, but has a chance to knock down enemies (requires a Melee skill of 50).

Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.

It is possible to execute Mauler outside of V.A.T.S. (without the required Melee skill of 50 to perform the move) by initiating a power attack (hold attack button) while moving forward.


Oh, Baby! can successfully strike about 495 times from full condition before breaking.

Oh, Baby!, lying next to a dead nightkin

Charleston Cave - The weapon is in the far southwest open area of the cave, accessible via tunnels from the north and east. It is lying on the ground near the west wall, directly west of the eastern tunnel entrance. Next to the dead nightkin.


  • When fully repaired, each successful attack reduces the weapon's value by around 18 caps.
  • Before starting Guess Who I Saw Today the weapon is harder to spot, since the nightkin next to it will not be present.
