The rebar club is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


This crude weapon is a piece of concrete with three pieces of rebar sticking out of it. In addition, the bottom of the three rebars appears to be wound together with a strip of brown leather or cloth to make a handle. The club requires a Strength of 9 and a Melee Weapons skill of 50 for it to be at its maximum potential.

Special attack

It has a special Mauler attack that does regular damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 8 more action points, but has a chance to knock down enemies (requires a Melee Weapons skill of 50).

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

It is possible to execute Mauler outside of V.A.T.S. (without the required Melee Weapons skill of 50 to perform the move) by initiating a power attack (hold attack button) while moving forward.


The rebar club can successfully strike about 1245 times from full condition before breaking.
