The machete is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

CharacteristicsEdit

The machete appears to be a makeshift weapon, and consists of a lawn mower blade strapped to a wooden handle. It is the primary melee weapon of Caesar's Legion. Aside from having a low Strength requirement, it also does bonus damage to limbs.

Special attackEdit

It has a special Back Slash attack that does 70% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 4 fewer action points. Unusual for melee weapons, there is no Melee Skill requirement to use this attack.

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. by initiating a power attack (hold attack button) while moving forward.

DurabilityEdit

The machete can successfully strike about 245 times from full condition before breaking.
