- Note: Melee weapons do double normal damage in V.A.T.S.
It is possible to execute Lights Out outside of V.A.T.S. (without the required Melee skill of 50 to perform the move) by initiating a power attack (hold attack button) while moving forward.
The tire iron can successfully strike about 995 times from full condition before breaking.
- It can be found in most locations where low-level humanoid enemies are located, most notably Primm and Freeside, carried by some of the convicts or thugs.
- Commonly found on Vipers.
