The switchblade is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

It is a small knife that has a blade held in position with a spring. It has received a significant boost in damage compared to its counterpart in Fallout 3 but it is still one of the weaker melee weapons in the Mojave Wasteland. However, its small size makes it a holdout weapon, meaning it can be concealed regardless of Sneak skill.

It has a special 'Back Slash' attack, which does 70% damage in V.A.T.S. at the cost of 15 action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).
