A power fist is a type of weapon that appears in every incarnation of the Fallout universe released thus far; one of very few weapons to claim such status. In all of its incarnations, it appears as some variation of glove or armored gauntlet, with a powered ram or similar device which improves the impact of the wielder's Unarmed strikes.

Big Frigger mega power fist
The Big Frigger mega power fist is a new model, upgraded from BeatCo's previous 'Big Frigger' power fist. A promotional excerpt states that it has upgraded power servos to increase its Strength. However, it uses twice as much charge from power cells as well.
The pneumatic power fist (referred to in-game simply as a power fist) is an Unarmed-class weapon which appears in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. It appears as an armored gauntlet, like that of a suit of power armor. However, it appears to use a pneumatic ram instead of kinetic energy devices, making it function in a manner closer to that of the impact gloves. (see below)

Impact gloves are an Unarmed class of weapon exclusive to Fallout Tactics. They appear to be a leather glove with a pneumatic piston bolted to the back of the hand, which extends on contact with the enemy for additional striking force. While not, strictly-speaking, a power fist, it is included as it functions in a more or less similar fashion. Impact gloves do not require ammunition.
