Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The pool cue is a long, slim rod of polished wood decorated with colored stripes, used in cue sports. It has a long reach and does an average amount of damage.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

It has a special Grand Slam attack that does 200% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 11 more action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

Grand Slam5060381.58
Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.

It is possible to execute Grand Slam 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.

Durability[edit | edit source]

The pool cue can successfully strike about 245 times from full condition before breaking.
