The power fist is an unarmed weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

CharacteristicsEdit

The power fist is a mechanical glove mounted with a hydraulic piston powered ram. When punching, the pistons push the ram forward, smashing into the enemy. Sometimes, enough power is transferred to the target to knock them down.

NotesEdit

  • This weapon is an improved holdout weapon.
  • Upon close inspection, there are notches on the fist that add up to 33.
  • As of the Old World Blues add-on, the power fist attacks much more slowly, even with a maxed out Unarmed skill and high Strength. Even with the Slayer perk, it punches rather the same speed as it did in Fallout 3. The slower attack speed is not present in the other variants like the zap glove and ballistic fist, however.
  • When doing a power attack with the power fist, the sound of the hydraulics is louder.
