Although it cannot be used in conjunction with power armor, the fist is a potent close quarters combat weapon for just about any build relying on Unarmed damage to survive. Requires level 30 and is then available in two more grades at level 40 and 50.

    It's not all about the guns, of course. The melee selection was expanded as well, with a eye toward entertaining builds designed to deliver massive (and painful) physical damage. Some of these weapons were initially intended for purposes other than inflicting harm. The power fist and super sledge are prewar hardware originally used by construction crews for demolition. But it certainly didn't take much imagination to find alternative uses for them."
