The Paladin Toaster is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas. It is a unique version of the zap glove.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The Paladin Toaster has a black and gray casing as opposed to the zap glove's blue and yellow as well as green lights along the wrist instead of blue. There are three coils along each side similar to the heating coils of an actual toaster. It inflicts more damage than the zap glove and does bonus damage against robots and enemies wearing power armor.

Location[edit | edit source]

The Paladin Toaster is located in Black Rock cave. It is lying on the body of a dead prospector and is guarded by nightkin.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite a small energy cell visible at the top of the glove, it does not require any ammunition.
  • The name "Paladin Toaster" stems from its ability to do bonus damage to power armor, which Brotherhood paladins often wear.
  • Does not do bonus damage to NCR salvaged power armor, as it is not classified as power armor.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Sometime before release, zap gloves, as well as many other unarmed weapons, were supposed to use energy cells as ammunition, but it wasn't supported by the game engine and there was not enough time for implementation.[1]
