The steel saw is a melee weapon in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Although visually identical to the auto axe, the steel saw is much weaker, dealing roughly half as much damage. It appears to be a modified concrete cutter or saw, with a rotating metal blade. Slaves use the steel saw for cutting through metal objects. However, this does not translate to an in-game damage bonus against robots.

Variants[edit | edit source]

  • Auto axe, a modified and stronger version of the steel axe made out of old car parts
  • Man Opener, a stronger variant of the auto axe that ignores damage resistance.
  • The Mauler, the strongest variant of auto-axe.
