The proton axe is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.

CharacteristicsEdit

The proton axe resembles a futuristic war-axe with a glowing blue blade of electrical energy at its head. On the other side it has two capacitors which also share the same blue electric current. It does electrical damage with extra damage against robots and power armor users. It can be repaired with the inexpensive proton throwing axe, raising its resell value drastically.

Special attackEdit

It has a special Proton Electrocutioner attack that does 200% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 13 more action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.

It is possible to execute Proton Electrocutioner 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.

DurabilityEdit

The proton axe can successfully strike about 995 times from full condition before breaking.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The technology used by this weapon appears to be similar to the electric weapons created in the Secret Vault by Vault-Tec.
  • The proton axe is based on the proton ax of Wasteland, the 1980s game which is considered to be Fallout's predecessor.
