The pipe wrench is a melee weapon in Fallout 4.


The pipe wrench is a heavy, metal wrench, specked with rust and covered in chipped red paint. Although other wrenches appear in the game, the pipe wrench is the only one used as a makeshift melee weapon.

The pipe wrench's low weight, average swing speed and heavy damage makes it a decent low to mid-tier melee weapon. Weapon mods (in the form of gears and other metal objects held tight in the wrench's jaws) can be added on for additional damage and other effects.
