The hatchet is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

It is a weighted hand-axe with a rubber-gripped metal handle, for chopping wood and limbs alike. Unlike throwing hatchets, these are not balanced for use as a projectile weapon. Hatchets deal an additional 50% limb damage.

It has a special 'Back Slash' attack, which does 70% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 17 action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).
