Plunkett's Valid Points are a set of unarmed weapons in Fallout 3.


Plunkett's Valid Points was Junders Plunkett's weapon of choice, a lightweight set of spiked knuckles. Plunkett had murdered many using his fists alone. When his raider brethren were hunted down by Regulators he sought refuge in Arlington House, where he awaits someone worthy to hunt him down and take up the knuckles, hoping the bounty hunter will seek out a just cause with it.


Plunkett's Valid Points are a unique version of the spiked knuckles. It inflicts 3 more damage per hit than the regular set of spiked knuckles, and has double the chances of a Critical Hit. The spiked knuckles only have the standard chance at criticals.


Plunkett's Valid Points can successfully strike about 333 times from full condition before breaking.
