Blood-Nap is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Blood-Nap is a unique variant of the Bowie knife that does bonus critical damage, gives a bonus critical chance, and adds +10 to Sneak. Though odd for a weapon, this is simply meant to make it a more accessible improved holdout weapon, that can be concealed if the players Sneak skill is 40 or more (50 is the usual requirement).

Blood-Nap's special attack is "Blood-nap" in V.A.T.S., which only does 80% damage, but removes 10 action points from the cost.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Found in The Courier's Mile. This weapon becomes accessible only after first completing The Launch. It is found sticking out of a street lamp just to your left as you enter the area.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon's Sneak bonus will be shown as "Activated" when the weapon is equipped, in an on-screen message.
  • It is one of the few unique weapons in New Vegas with the same appearance as its non-unique counterpart, but this is due to an oversight and not intended. See below for more details.
  • It may glow blue in dark areas.
  • Blood-Nap does more damage and has a higher DPS than even Chance's knife, making this an extremely formidable single-handed bladed weapon.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Blood-Nap may be a reference to Set from the original Fallout.
  • There remains in the files an unused texture that can only be assumed to be meant for the Blood-Nap, since it lacks a unique texture like near-all other unique weapons. See below for the texture applied to the Bowie knife.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon may sometimes clip with the players hand, showing part of the handle protruding through the knuckles when wielding the weapon.
