The pool cue is a weapon in Fallout 3.

CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon may serve well in the earliest parts of the game as the player's first foes are weak. But this weapon becomes useless, to say the least, in other parts of the game. Due to its low damage, it can be easily replaced when compared to other 2-handed melee weapons, such as the nail board or the baseball bat which can be found early in the game.

DurabilityEdit

The pool cue can successfully strike about 333 times from full condition before breaking.

VariantsEdit

The Break - The Break is the build-a-better-pool-cue, with the ability to get a critical hit, as well as more damage and item HP.
