This weapon is an improved holdout weapon.
If you look closely, you can see notches on the fist that add up to 33.
As of the Old World Blues add-on, the power fist attacks much more slowly, even with a maxed out Unarmed skill and high Strength. Even with the Slayer perk, it punches rather the same speed as it did in . The slower attack speed is not present in the other variants like the Fallout 3 zap glove and ballistic fist, however.
