displacer glove is a weapon in .
Fallout: New Vegas
The displacer glove creates a shock wave upon impact similar to the one made by the
Gauss rifle, both dealing a large amount of damage and pushing a target back. It does this apparently via a sonic boom, shown by the speaker on the knuckle.

Despite a small energy cell being clearly visible in the glove, it does not require any ammunition, just like the ballistic fist which has a built-in shotgun.
If the player has the Ranger Takedown Perk, when performing the leg sweep, the same wave of energy is created when the leg comes into contact with the target even though the fist isn't technically used, which is visible in the third person view.
Behind the scenes Edit
Sometime before release, displacer gloves, as well as many other fists, were supposed to use energy cells as ammunition, but it wasn't supported by the game engine and there was not enough time for implementation.
