The pool cue is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.
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.
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).
|- Type of attack||- Skill required|
|- Damage per attack in V.A.T.S.||- Action point cost|
|- Damage per action point||- Additional effects|
- 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.
The pool cue can successfully strike about 245 times from full condition before breaking.
