|For an overview of Ripper models in the Fallout series of games, see Ripper (weapon).|
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.
The ripper can successfully strike about 5995 times from full condition before breaking.
- Arcade Gannon's Ripper, a unique companion-only ripper carried by Arcade Gannon.
- Ripper (GRA), a modifiable version added by the Gun Runners' Arsenal add-on.
