The throwing knife is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics

The silent and cunning weapon of choice for assassins. They are small, light weight blades that make for quick and quiet kills. They are about seven inches in length and made of a light weight metal alloy wrapped in a red cloth grip.

Since they lack the damage of hatchets and spears, it's recommended to use these with any poison. Throwing knives count as a holdout weapon and can concealed regardless of Sneak skill.

Locations

Notes

  • Throwing hatchets, spears, and knives are more effective when coated with poisons.
  • Throwing hatchets, spears, and knives can not be picked up and re-used once thrown.
  • For unknown reasons, the throwing knife is exceedingly rare, though possibly a bug.

Bugs

  • PCIcon pc.png When you take off a limb with a throwing knife, a semi-glowing version appears afterwards that is not able to be picked up called 'projectile throwing knife', and when shot, it explodes.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Sometimes the throwing knife may explode for unknown reasons when hitting a dead enemy's leg.
