Of course, the Dead Horses have their wooden war clubs and even the Sorrows have their Yao Guai gauntlets.
” — Joshua Graham
war club is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on .
It is made of a hardwood native to the
Zion Valley that has been sculpted into a 2-foot long club. The war club is the signature weapon of the Dead Horses tribe, hence the striking end of the weapon being shaped like a horse's head.
Special attack Edit
It has a
special attack that does 125% damage in Lights Out V.A.T.S. at the cost of 5 more action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

The war club can successfully strike about 995 times from full
condition before breaking.

The war club is the fastest blunt melee weapon in the game.
After modifying it, this weapon has a damage-per-second (DPS) almost as high as weapons that require a Melee Weapons skill of 100. This makes it a solid melee weapon for players not devoted to increasing their melee skill.
A war club that has been upgraded with honors makes the charge attack faster than running. In fact, simply holding down the melee button makes travel faster, even with light armor and certain perks.
Both modifications for the war club can be purchased from the Gun Runners after completing Honest Hearts.
The war club honors modification changes the weapon's icon.
Behind the scenes Edit
The war club is similar to war clubs used by the native population of New Zealand and Apache tribals.
