|For other appearances of this object, see Whac-a-Commie.|
The Red Menace Whac-a-Commie machine resembles the real-life arcade game Whack-a-Mole and requires one to hit small padded figures as they emerge from holes on the surface of the machine. While the Commie Whacker is the intended weapon for this game, any weapon (including non-melee weapons and unarmed attacks) can be used. The figures are not targetable in V.A.T.S. The Whac-a-Commie game features the same characters as the Pip-Boy Red Menace game.
