Figaro is a unique weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


A unique variant of the straight razor, it features a slightly tarnished metal handle with a polished silver blade decorated with ornate etchings. It counts as a holdout weapon and therefore can be smuggled into casinos. The Figaro boasts superior damage and critical damage, attack speed and double the critical chance compared to the standard straight razor.

Special attackEdit

It has a special Back Slash attack that does 70% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 3 fewer 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 Back Slash 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.


Figaro can successfully strike about 445 times from full condition before breaking.
