The steel saw is a melee weapon available in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt.

BackgroundEdit

The steel saw is the standard tool of many Pitt slaves to cut metal.[1]

CharacteristicsEdit

The steel saw is a weaker version of the auto axe, dealing roughly half as much damage. It appears to be a modified concrete cutter or concrete saw, with a rotating metal blade. Slaves use the steel saw for cutting through metal objects. However, this does not translate to an in-game damage bonus against robots.

DurabilityEdit

The steel saw can successfully strike about 625 times from full condition before breaking.

VariantsEdit

  • Auto axe Gametitle-FO3 TP: A modified and stronger version of the steel saw made out of old car parts
  • Man Opener Gametitle-FO3 TP: A stronger variant that ignores armor (power armor included).
  • The Mauler Gametitle-FO3 TP: The strongest variant of auto-axe.

It can also cut skin and bone, so it is useful in a pinch but is superseded by the far more powerful Auto Axe. Collect and use this weapon as spare parts to repair any Auto Axes you are collecting. As each weapon looks identical, don’t forget to equip the right one!"
