The Ripper is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics

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.

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).

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

  • 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.
