A tool is a miscellaneous item in Fallout and Fallout 2.
A super tool set, containing various useful tools, including pliers. Its user gains a 20% bonus to Repair when the item is used.
Tools are worth a lot of money if sold to the right people, and they are quite common. Valerie can be given a set of tools and a wrench in exchange for a super tool kit one day later.
In the Fallout Demo, the item is called wire cutters (in possession of Skippy) and can be used to disable Scrapheap's power generator. The two gangs then leave town and the demo ends.
