The proton throwing axe is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


It is similar in appearance to the proton axe, but is much smaller. It is a thrown weapon and it explodes on impact. These weapons are quite uncommon, so one should take careful aim when using one. As an advantage towards robots, it can target a combat inhibitor in V.A.T.S. as if it's in full view, even if the robot is facing the player. Unlike the non throwing version, it does not have an EMP effect.


Protonic inversal throwing axe: A much stronger variant with a higher damage.
