This weapon is essentially a [[chainsaw]] compacted into knife form so that it can be wielded with just one hand. Nevertheless, the Ripper inherits many of the qualities of its larger version. 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]]), and its continuous cutting action means the Ripper ignores [[Damage Resistance]] and [[Damage Threshold]]. This makes it very good for handling multiple enemies or large, but slow, creatures.

The Ripper is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics

This weapon is essentially a chainsaw compacted into knife form so that it can be wielded with just one hand. Nevertheless, the Ripper inherits many of the qualities of its larger version. The attack button can be held down and it will dismember anything in front of the player, much like a chainsaw or thermic lance, and its continuous cutting action means the Ripper ignores Damage Resistance and Damage Threshold. This makes it very good for handling multiple enemies or large, but slow, creatures.

Special attack

It has a special Long Cut attack that does 50% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 20 fewer action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

Normal0100651.54
Long Cut5050451.11
Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.

It is not possible to execute Long Cut outside of V.A.T.S. as power attacks do not apply to continuously damaging melee weapons, such as the Chainsaw.

Durability

The ripper can successfully strike about 5995 times from full condition before breaking.

Notes

  • When damaging some enemies, like mantises, red blood will be sprayed instead of green.

Bugs

  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360 Sometimes, a Ripper (Arcade Gannon's 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. [verified]
