The Ripper (GRA) is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.


This Ripper has been specially designed by the Gun Runners to accept modifications, unlike its standard variant. This customizable weapon is able to deliver even more continuous amounts of damage against its targets. Much like the chainsaw, this tool, when used as a weapon, can dismember enemy limbs with great ease. It is considered an improved holdout weapon.

Special attackEdit

It has a special Long Cut attack that does 50% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 20 fewer action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

  • When using the ripper against certain non-human enemies (like giant mantises), red blood will be spilled instead of the intended blood color.
  • The Ripper does not have a trigger or button to activate it, leaving how it's controlled a mystery.
