The hatchet is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

CharacteristicsEdit

It is a hand-axe with a rubber-gripped wooden handle for chopping wood and limbs alike. Unlike throwing hatchets, these are not balanced for use as a projectile weapon. Hatchets deal an additional 50% Limb Damage.

Special attackEdit

It has a special Back Slash attack, which does 70% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 5 less 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

The hatchet can successfully strike about 1495 times from full condition before breaking.
