The Ripper is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon is good for a low- to mid-level melee player. The attack button can be held down and it will dismember anything in front of the player (much like a chainsaw or thermic lance). This makes it very good for handling multiple enemies or large, but slow, creatures.

It has a special 'Long Cut' attack, which does 50% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 45 action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Rippers do more damage in one action in V.A.T.S. than in normal combat.
  • When damaging some enemies (like mantises) red blood will be displayed instead of green.
