The railway spike or railway spikes are a type of ammunition found in Fallout 3, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76.


Repurposed fastening tools from the pre-War railway system, these spikes are capable of crippling and delimbing those unlucky enough to be the target of their fire. Their speed and kinetic energy are well into the lethal range, and their velocity has been fine-tuned to maximize effectiveness.[1]
