Ripper is a weapon in .
Fallout: New Vegas
This weapon is essentially a
chainsaw compacted into knife form so that it can be wielded with just one hand. Nevertheless, the Ripper inherits many of the qualities of its larger version. This weapon is good for a low-mid level melee player. The attack button can be held down and it will dismember anything in front of the player (much like a chainsaw or thermic lance), and its continuous cutting action means the Ripper ignores Damage Resistance and Damage Threshold. This makes it very good for handling multiple enemies or large, but slow, creatures.
Special attack Edit
It has a
special attack that does 50% damage in Long Cut V.A.T.S. at the cost of 20 fewer action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.
It is not possible to
execute Long Cut outside of V.A.T.S. as power attacks do not apply to continuously damaging melee weapons, such as the Chainsaw.
The ripper can successfully strike about 5995 times from full
condition before breaking.

Rippers do more damage in one action in V.A.T.S. than in normal combat.
When damaging some enemies (like mantises) red blood will be displayed instead of green.
