Liberator is a unique machete that sports a higher damage per hit and triple the damage per second. It was given to Dead Sea by his centurion in recognition of his contribution to the victory over the Sun Dog tribe. Even though it is a unique weapon, it shares the same appearance as any other machete.

If siding with the Legion, the weapon is given to you by Dead Sea at Camp Nelson after completing the quest We Are Legion. If you are working for the NCR, you will be sent to take Nelson back in the quest, Restoring Hope. During the siege, you will be tasked to kill Dead Sea in one of the town's barracks. Upon death, the Liberator can be looted from Dead Sea.
