The dog tag fist is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon is a makeshift pair of knuckle-dusters. It consists of several NCR military dog tags clenched between the player's fingers on each fist with their chains wrapped around the knuckles. The dog tag fist is notable for its total lack of requirements: it only requires a Strength of 1 and no skill in Unarmed.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Note: this item is also craftable via a dialogue option with Veronica, or with ED-E (with at least 1 rank of the Camarader-E perk).

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Camp Guardian caves: The crafting recipe for this weapon is given to the player by Private Halford after clearing out the caves (or looted from his corpse).

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Each dog tag belonged to Sgt. James Merish, from the 452nd Battalion in Irvine, California. Apparently, he had a blood type of O-negative.
  • Even though the requirement to build it is 20 Dog Tags, the player only uses three of them for each hand, six in total.
