Love and Hate is a unique weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

CharacteristicsEdit

Love and Hate is a unique pair of knuckle-dusters which deal more damage than the standard variants. The attached spiked plates have the words "LOVE" and "HATE" embossed on them, and are stained with blood. It is considered a holdout weapon, and can be carried concealed into weapons-free locations regardless of the Courier's Sneak skill.
