The piston spear is a melee weapon in Fallout Tactics.


What was once a primitive tribal weapon has now been enhanced with contemporary technology. It uses a metal shaft with the addition of a spring-loaded piston which reacts on impact to increase penetration capabilities up to 30cm further, allowing it to inflict more damage, making it superior to the normal spear, but at a cost of reliability damage-wise. This spear can be used for standard melee attacks but can also be thrown for the potential to inflict significantly more damage.



This is the heaviest spear in the game weighing in at 8 lbs., heavier than many other more complex weapons.
