關於an overview of pool cues,參見pool cue


The pool cue is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


The pool cue is a long, slim rod of polished wood decorated with colored stripes, used in cue sports. It has a long reach and does an average amount of damage.

Special attack

It has a special Grand Slam attack that does 200% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 11 more action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

Template:VATS attack table

It is possible to execute Grand Slam 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.


The pool cue can successfully strike about 245 times from full condition before breaking.
