Though the weapon deals less damage than The Mauler, the Man Opener ignores normal damage resistance, similar to the deathclaw gauntlet. This property makes it more useful in some situations; for example, when going up against aliens with inertia suppression fields or Enclave Hellfire troopers.
Man Opener can successfully strike about 457 times from full condition before breaking.

The weapon is found on a bed in the back of the supply plant in The Pitt steelyard close to a single steel ingot. Enter the plant, then go east through the hallway. Turn north and continue until you reach two exits. Take the left, continue through the passage, climb the stairs and eventually exit into a large room. There's a bed on the left as you enter. The Man Opener is on the bed.
Behind the scenes
The name is a pun on the name of a common kitchen tool, a can opener.
