Of course, the Dead Horses have their wooden war clubs and even the Sorrows have their Yao Guai gauntlets.Joshua Graham

The war club is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.

CharacteristicsEdit

It is made of a hardwood native to the Zion Valley that has been sculpted into a 2-foot long club. The war club is the signature weapon of the Dead Horses tribe, hence the striking end of the weapon being shaped like a horse's head.

Special attackEdit

It has a special Lights Out attack that does 125% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 5 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.

DurabilityEdit

The war club can successfully strike about 995 times from full condition before breaking.

NotesEdit

  • The war club is the fastest blunt melee weapon in the game.
  • After modifying it, this weapon has a damage-per-second (DPS) almost as high as weapons that require a Melee Weapons skill of 100. This makes it a solid melee weapon for players not devoted to increasing their melee skill.
  • A war club that has been upgraded with honors makes the charge attack faster than running. In fact, simply holding down the melee button makes travel faster. The Slayer and Melee Hacker perks increase this speed, and when combined with rushing water, the player character will travel at a blinding speed.
  • Both modifications for the war club can be purchased from the Gun Runners after completing Honest Hearts.
  • The war club honors modification changes the weapon's icon.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The war club is similar to war clubs used by the native population of New Zealand and Apache tribals.
