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. Unusually 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. (without the required Melee skill of 50 to perform the move) 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.

LocationsEdit

  • A machete can be found in the Abandoned shack N-NW of the Yangtze Memorial.
