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

Background

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

Characteristics

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.

Durability

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

Variants

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