The rolling pin is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


A plain wooden rolling pin used in baking to flatten the dough, with a couple of thin streaks of blood down one side. It is the weakest melee weapon in the game, even with a Melee Weapons skill of 100 and all the relevant perks taken.

Special attack

The rolling pin has a special Lights Out attack that does 125% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of six more action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

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

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


The rolling pin can successfully strike about 495 times from full condition before breaking.
