A standard pre-war cattle prod. The electrode tips of the weapon deliver an extremely powerful shock that can wound and even kill.”— In-game description, Van Buren tech demo
Typically used before the Great War as a way to easily herd cattle, it has now been re-purposed for non-lethal use against humans and other wasteland critters. Cattle prods are known to sometimes be modified for a more lethal shock than their base function originally intended.
Van Buren tech demoEdit
- The player character has the cattle prod located in their Inventory at the beginning of the tech demo.
