The chainsaw is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


由微型核融电池驱动的链锯需要双手握持才能使用。其庞大的体积和重量被其威慑力所弥补因为它的伤害机制——按住攻击时造成持续的、无视护甲与伤害减免的伤害。Unlike most melee weapons, 在划割時保持按住开关以让锯齿旋转讓敌人变得四分五裂。

Special attack

It has a special Scrap Heap attack, which does 50% damage in V.A.T.S. but at the cost of 20 less action points.

Template:VATS attack table

It is not possible to execute Scrap Heap outside of V.A.T.S. as power attacks do not apply to continuously damaging melee weapons, such as the Ripper.


The chainsaw can successfully strike about 7995 times from full condition before breaking.

  • This weapon is affected by the Heavyweight perk.
  • The chainsaw's V.A.T.S. attack animation is unusual due to the automatic nature of the weapon type. The attack is initiated but the automatic damage is not applied, nor does the target act as if harmed, until the end of the attack when the damage is finally applied. It also has a slight knockback effect.
  • The chainsaw, along with the Ripper, is one of two weapons in Fallout: New Vegas that non-player characters use differently than the player character. Rather than using the thrust attack, they use the V.A.T.S.-style slash. This can cause a large amount of damage.
  • 这种武器可以用来完成一个叫做Armed For Bear的GRA成就。
  • Despite making very loud noise when firing and having a static sound when just wielding, it is considered completely silent by the game, not drawing the attention of NPCs.
