Hardened knuckle grip that is actually made out of steel. They protect your hand, and do more damage, in unarmed combat.

Brass Knuckles are a form of simple weapon used in hand-to-hand combat. Developed in antiquity, this weapon is nevertheless quite prevalent in the post-Great War wastelands.

Despite the colorful name, "brass" knuckles are typically made from stainless steel, and take the form of four linked rings in a shallow convex formation with a bumper attached to the concave face. The rings are slipped over a combatant's fingers with the bumper pressed into the palm of the hand. When a punch is thrown, the brass knuckles take the majority of the impact impulse, transferring much of the punch's kinetic energy to the target by way of the harder, smaller impacting surface of the metal knuckles. This drastically increases the likelihood of serious tissue disruption and bone damage.

Realistically, while properly fitted brass knuckles can prove quite an asset in a brawl, improperly fitting brass knuckles can easily break the user's fingers or cause severe bruising and edema in the fingers and palm. In terms of a wasteland weapon, however, a set of brass knuckles, while little better than nothing, can nevertheless provide a combat edge.

A variant of this weapon, Spiked Knuckles, are essentially brass knuckles with spikes welded to the apex of each finger ring. Predictably, spiked knuckles are capable of causing more severe injuries.

In Fallout 2, peculiarly you can find Spiked Knuckles earlier than you can find this, making Brass Knuckles somewhat useless. However, light weight coupled with reasonable value means that players with adequate Barter skills can make a respectable profit looting these from fallen foes. As they are far more common than firearms in the lower levels, the collection and resale of brass knuckles can provide a much-needed early-game source of income.

In Fallout 3, the Brass Knuckles are an unarmed weapon and are affected by the Iron Fist Perk.

Locations

Brass Knuckles are found throughout the Capital Wasteland. They are commonly found on low level Raiders as well as lockers and other similar containers.

Variants

  • Steel Knuckles (The Pitt add-on) - Slightly stronger than the regular Brass Knuckles, the Steel Knuckles only use a paltry 14 AP per VATS swing.

Notes

  • Because Spiked Knuckles are not much harder to find, Brass Knuckles can be rendered obsolete as a weapon rather quickly. However, they are a great repair tool.

Fallout Tactics

The following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.

Few battles in Fallout Tactics lend themselves to unarmed close combat, as most enemies are well-equipped with firepower that can shred melee attackers before range can be closed. Yet, raiders, rioters, and other relatively weak opponents still use brass knuckles from time to time. While equipping squad members with brass knuckles is generally foolhardly and wasteful of carry limit weight, a reasonable profit can be made by collecting brass knuckles from defeated enemies and reselling them at a nearby Brotherhood bunker.

Brass Knuckles are metal devices with holes punched through them, and are thus intended to be worn on the fingers while the fist is clenched. They are meant to increase the force of a punch, while minimizing the initial force needed to throw an arm, and when used properly, they create massive damage against an intended target. Brass Knuckles have been available in Grand Theft Auto games since Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and have been available in every subsequent game except Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto IV.
