The Shiv is a melee weapon in Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.

A slang term in some areas around the world for sharpened weapons shaped from common objects, especially those made in jail. Also called shanks.

Fallout 2

Due to a bug, this weapon can't be used.

This home-made knife is as dangerous as it is easily concealed.— In-game description, Fallout 2

Locations

Fallout Tactics

Locations

  • Brahmin Wood, found on a raider outside the compound entrance.
  • Sometimes found on Ghouls in random encounters.

Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel

The staple of prison movies, Shivs are crafted from scrap metal and old tape. They do little damage, but are better than an empty hand when going rounds with a surly Raider.

Characteristics

It's the weakest weapon in the game and, ironically, also the rarest. No vendor sells it and it is found only on hostile Los ghouls very rarely.

Locations

  • Los. Very rarely, the ghouls here equip this weapon.
