The baseball bat is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


This melee weapon in Fallout: New Vegas is identical in appearance to the baseball bat seen in Fallout 3, but it deals more damage.

Special attackEdit

It has the fitting Grand Slam special attack that does 200% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 10 more action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.

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 baseball bat can successfully strike about 1,995 times from full condition before breaking.

  • Despite its low attack value, the baseball bat at full condition and good barter skill can be sold for around 250 caps.
  • The baseball bat's unique V.A.T.S. move is the Grand Slam, the same move used by the nail board, pool cue and the shovel.
  • The baseball bat has some of the highest durability of melee weaponry, and its availability makes it a decent starting weapon.
  • Looking closely, the inscription "Since 1879" is seen on the bat, below a circled uppercase cursive "B," likely the brand logo.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • In the sport of baseball, a grand slam is a home run hit with all the bases occupied by baserunners, thereby scoring four runs; the most possible on a single play.
