For an overview of Ripper models in the Fallout series of games, see Ripper (weapon).

The Ripper is a melee skill weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


This weapon is good for a low-mid level melee player. The attack button can be held down and it will dismember anything in front of the player (much like a chainsaw or thermic lance). This makes it very good for handling multiple enemies or large, but slow, creatures.

It has a special 'Long Cut' attack, which does 50% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 45 action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

This weapon can be used for the Gun Runners' Arsenal challenge Armed For Bear.




  • Rippers do more damage in one action in V.A.T.S. than in normal combat.
  • When damaging some enemies (like mantises) red blood will be displayed instead of green.


  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360 Sometimes, a Ripper (Arcade Gannon special version) is in your inventory that is available for use and does not show up in the shop menus, but if it is dropped, you will not be able to pick it up again.
