machete gladius (plural "gladii") is a weapon in .
Fallout: New Vegas
The wide blade at the head with an indentation into the blade towards the hilt is designed to give more weight to the head of the blade, allowing for more momentum with slashes. Like a machete, it does bonus limb damage. It can be repaired with another machete gladius, or regular
machetes. It has a fairly high DPS due to its speed, which allows up to 3.5 regular attacks per second; combined with its 28 base damage, it readily cuts through most armored enemies.
Special attack Edit
It has a
special attack that does 70% damage in Back Slash V.A.T.S. at the cost of 4 fewer action points (requires a Melee Weapons skill of 50).

condition before breaking.

Behind the scenes Edit
Despite sharing a name with the Roman Gladius, the blades in the
Mojave Wasteland do not follow the same pattern, instead being curved and having an indentation.
