The displacer glove is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


The displacer glove creates a shock wave upon impact similar to the one made by the Gauss rifle, both dealing a large amount of damage and pushing a target back. It does this apparently via a sonic boom, shown by the speaker on the knuckle. It is a top-tier Unarmed weapon, and thus very damaging.


  • Pushy, the unique variant that is significantly more damaging and requires less Strength to use.

Behind the scenes

Despite knocking the target back upon a successful hit and visible small energy cells inset, the weapon does not drain any from the player's inventory. This is the result of an engine limitation: melee and unarmed weapons cannot be assigned an ammo type, nor set to drain them. Obsidian encountered problems attempting to implement this feature and ultimately the weapons have an invisible, infinite ammo supply.[1][2]



  1. J.E. Sawyer: "Did you ever intend for the Ballistic Fist in Fallout: New Vegas to use shotgun shells as ammo?
    I intended for several of the Unarmed weapons to use ammo, but we encountered some problems with implementing it. I would have liked to continue with it because I think ammo use/reloading could have helped distinguish those weapons in more interesting ways."
