A power fist is a type of weapon that appears in every incarnation of the Fallout universe released thus far; one of very few weapons to claim such status. In all of its incarnations, it appears as some variation of glove or armored gauntlet, with a powered ram or similar device which improves the impact of the wielder's Unarmed strikes.

ModelsEdit

"Big Frigger" power fistEdit

Fo1 power fist
Gameplay articles: Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics

The Big Frigger power fist is an armored gauntlet produced by BeatCo, and uses energy cells to drive a kinetic storage device, similar to the device used in the super sledge.

Big Frigger mega power fistEdit

Fo2 Mega power fist
Gameplay article: Fallout 2

The Big Frigger mega power fist is a new model, upgraded from BeatCo's previous 'Big Frigger' power fist. A promotional excerpt states that it has upgraded power servos to increase its Strength. However, it uses twice as much charge from power cells as well.

Pneumatic power fistEdit

POWERFIST
Gameplay articles: Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas

The pneumatic power fist (referred to in-game simply as a power fist) is an Unarmed-class weapon which appears in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. It appears as an armored gauntlet, like that of a suit of power armor. However, it appears to use a pneumatic ram instead of kinetic energy devices, making it function in a manner closer to that of the impact gloves. (see below)

Displacer gloveEdit

Gameplay article: Fallout: New Vegas

The displacer glove is an Unarmed weapon that creates a small shock wave upon contact with its target, pushing it backward. The wave may be created by sound, as it has speaker on the knuckles.

For the unique Displacer Glove in Fallout: New Vegas, see: Pushy.

Zap gloveEdit

Gameplay article: Fallout: New Vegas

The zap glove is an Unarmed weapon that has an electrified plate on the knuckles, zapping the enemy. It does extra damage against robots or enemies in power armor.

Bear trap fistEdit

BearTrapFist
Gameplay article: Dead Money

The bear trap fist is an improvised 'power fist'-like weapon employed primarily by the Ghost people of the Sierra Madre. The device is bolted to the forearm in such a way as to hit the target with the trigger plate of the trap, causing the jaws to snap shut on the victim.

Saturnite fistEdit

Saturnite fist
Gameplay article: Old World Blues

Saturnite fists are an experimental prototype version of standard power fists. Made from the same lightweight ceramic 'Saturnite' alloy as Cosmic knives, they can be swung faster than their heavier counterparts.

For the upgraded Saturnite fist in Old World Blues (Fallout: New Vegas DLC), see: Saturnite fist super-heated.

Impact glovesEdit

Tactics impact gloves
Gameplay article: Fallout Tactics

Impact gloves are an Unarmed class of weapon exclusive to Fallout Tactics. They appear to be a leather glove with a pneumatic piston bolted to the back of the hand, which extends on contact with the enemy for additional striking force. While not, strictly-speaking, a power fist, it is included as it functions in a more or less similar fashion. Impact gloves do not require ammunition.

Electric power fistEdit
