The cattle prod is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

CharacteristicsEdit

Normally used for herding stubborn cattle, it has been re-purposed as a non-lethal weapon against humans. In addition to the taser-like prongs at the tip normally found on cattle prods, it has been outfitted with a thick, electrified metal coil around the striking end, hooked up to a pair of batteries taped down near the handle.

In addition to its damage causing potential, the cattle prod also causes fatigue damage, which can help knock out your enemies quicker.

Special attackEdit

It has a special attack called Lights Out, that does 125% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 8 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 Lights Out 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.

DurabilityEdit

The cattle prod can successfully strike about 2495 times from full condition before breaking.
