Gehenna is a unique weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.

CharacteristicsEdit

Gehenna is the GRA variant of the Shishkebab, a flaming melee weapon which sets the target on fire upon impact. It appears to run on fuel from the gas tank on the player's back.

In comparison to the standard Shishkebab, Gehenna has a more pronounced and brighter flame, its valve is blue instead of the standard red, its handle is black, and the motorcycle gas tank is more rusted. In addition, Gehenna inflicts greater damage, has a higher DPS, and uses fewer Action Points in V.A.T.S. than the Shishkebab.

Special attackEdit

Gehenna has a special attack called Back Slash 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.

DurabilityEdit

Gehenna can successfully strike about 1995 times from full condition before breaking.

NotesEdit

  • Even though its blade is wreathed in fire, poisons can still be applied to the Gehenna's blade. The damage over time from the applied poison stacks with the immolation damage. If the Courier has the Pyromaniac perk and poison is applied to Gehenna, it can become one of the most damaging melee weapons in the game.
  • Gehenna is one of the weapons the Courier can use to complete the challenge "The Same Could Be Said of All Religious Weapons."
  • As it is constantly on fire, Gehenna will set off gas leaks if the player walks through one with the sword drawn. The same applies if a companion has it equipped.
  • When a limb is severed by Gehenna while on fire, the flames will never go out.
  • There are twelve tally marks etched into Gehenna's gas tank, indicating the amount of kills from the previous owner. This is similar to the Ratslayer and the original Shishkebab.
  • The text "VALVCO" is engraved on on the valve.
  • As with all Shishkebabs, it seems to have an infinite supply of gas.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Gehenna is a valley located outside ancient Jerusalem, and was a place where various pagans sacrificed humans by throwing them in fire, and later, as Jerusalem and Judaism developed, waste would be burned there. Due to the increasing population, and thus waste, the fire was said to burn continually, and Dante used this to produce an image of Hell, which is now the most widespread representation: a place where evil people go to burn for eternity.
  • Gehenna is Aramaic for "lake of fire."
  • Gehenna is one of two Gun Runner's Arsenal weapons whose names reference biblical concepts, the other being Esther.

BugsEdit

  • pcIcon pc Sometimes when you switch between the 3rd person view and the 1st person view, the flames don't appear. Removing and re-equipping the weapon fixes this problem.[verified]
  • pcIcon pc xbox360Icon xbox360 ps3Icon ps3 When used by companions, the blade and tank will not appear, only the oven mitt on the right hand will appear.[verified]
