The knife spear is a weapon that can be obtained or crafted in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on, Dead Money.


By duct taping three cosmic knives to the end of a broom stick handle, the ghost people of the Sierra Madre commonly use this make-shift weapon to ward off outsiders. Its special V.A.T.S. attack is The Mauler (requires a Melee Weapons skill of 50 or more), which costs 35 action points, and can knock an opponent down, or even disarm them.


1 Knife spear
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).


Knife spear clean, a variant that is more damaging, especially to limbs.

  • They can commonly be found on ghost people.
  • One can be found in the area outside the Villa police station, impaling a skeleton by a fountain near the wide staircase leading to the station.

    • Enemy blood on the spear will be floating off of the surface
    • The Courier's palm will be stretched out, as is seen with the baseball bat, but because the bat is bigger than the knife spear, it can not normally be seen.
