zap glove is a weapon in .
Fallout: New Vegas
Visibly it appears as a blue and yellow colored metal gauntlet with an electrified plate wrapped around the fingers, which emits a burst of electricity when striking an object. A critical hit emits a more powerful blast. Its electrical nature makes this weapon especially effective against
robots and (to a lesser degree) enemies clad in most forms of power armor.

Despite a small energy cell being clearly visible in the glove, it does not require any ammunition.
The zap glove and its special variant, the Paladin Toaster, can be used to destroy Securitrons and other robots usually in one punch, even without a critical hit, making it very useful for a player who is focused on Unarmed weapons.
Behind the scenes Edit
Sometime before release, the zap glove as well as many other unarmed weapons were supposed to use energy cells as ammunition, but it wasn't supported by the game engine and there was not enough time for implementation.
