The Ant's Sting is a unique knife found in Fallout 3


  • Ant's Sting poisons those injured by it, dealing an additional 4 damage every second for 10 seconds.
  • Ant's Sting is repaired with ordinary knives.
  • Because poison damage stacks, rapidly hitting an opponent outside of V.A.T.S. can raise Ant's Sting's DPS to very high levels. After attacking 12 times within 4 seconds, its actual DPS rises to 90, outclassing the Shishkebab (without Pyromaniac). However, most enemies will already be defeated before Ant's Sting can pass this turning point.
  • The weapon's name is most likely a reference to the attack method of fire ants, distributed from a fire ant's stinger, after biting a foe (to hold on).


Received when you complete the mission The Superhuman Gambit. Side with the AntAgonizer and give her the Mechanist's costume for the weapon.
