關於an overview of brass knuckles in the Fallout series of games,參見brass knuckles


The brass knuckles are an unarmed weapon in Fallout 3.



A simple, low-level, unarmed weapon in Fallout 3. These are quickly replaced with the more superior and equally common spiked knuckles or can simply be carried for weaker enemies, (such as radroaches, mole rats, etc.), for those who don't wish to expend ammunition.


Brass knuckles can successfully strike about 667 times from full condition before breaking.

Brass knuckles are found throughout the Capital Wasteland. They are commonly found on low level raiders, as well as lockers and other similar containers.


Because spiked knuckels are not much harder to find, brass knuckles can be rendered obsolete as a weapon rather quickly. However, they are a great repair tool.
