proton axe is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on .
Old World Blues
The proton axe resembles a futuristic war-axe with a glowing blue blade of electrical energy at its head. On the other side it has two capacitors which also share the same blue electric current. It does electrical damage with extra damage against robots and
power armor users. It can be repaired with the inexpensive proton throwing axe, raising its resell value drastically.
Special attack Edit

special attack that does 200% damage in Proton Electrocutioner V.A.T.S. at the cost of 13 more action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).
