The Break, as found in Paradise Falls.

The Break is a unique pool cue found in Fallout 3


  • The Break is found on a pool table in the center of Paradise Falls next to the roasting brahmin near the entrance to Eulogy's Pad.


  • The weapon is not owned by any character and thus picking it up will not count as thieving.
  • It has the extended reach of a sledgehammer, but does less damage.
  • Although not a highly damaging weapon, it has a rapid attack, so many blows can be landed quickly.
  • Probably best used against opponents who aren't armed with melee weapons themselves as they will often block, stunning you for a few precious seconds. For this reason it's best to use V.A.T.S. attacks on other melee opponents.
  • The Break may be picked up by Rory MacLaren or any of the other slaves in Paradise Falls if they are set free, as it is usually the first available weapon upon exiting the slave pen area. The slavers themselves may also pick up the weapon if disarmed in combat or if they do not have ammo for their weapons. As a result, you may find it in the possession of one of these characters if there has been any fighting in Paradise Falls.

Behind the scenes

  • The Break is a reference to the pool term "breaking," which is when the starting player tries to hit (or break up) as many pool balls on the first hit as possible.
