The Mauler is a melee weapon available in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt. It is a unique Auto Axe that deals much more damage than the original. It can be obtained from Everett during the quest Unsafe Working Conditions once 80 Steel Ingots have been handed in.



It has a larger damage/hit and damage/second ratio compared to the standard Auto Axe (45 compared to 35) and uses less AP (50 compared to 65).


  • Though the Mauler is the single most damaging melee weapon (with the exception of the Shishkebab and Pyromaniac), it is also the heaviest, making it a more difficult weapon to carry around.


  • Grinding barrels and other physics objects will usually result in damage, as they will be pulled violently into the player, then spat off in some random direction at a decent rate of speed proportional to the mass of the object; Cars will sometimes scoot towards you, barrels will hit a player hard enough to damage, and shopping carts rocket off like bats out of hell. It is possible to kill NPCs with lots of patience and no repercussions, by repeatedly flinging barrels at them with the Mauler.
  • Its animation doesn't loop correctly. If you continuously grind the air, you will notice the weapon "twitching" after several seconds, like the animation starting over again and again.
  • When using it in FPS mode it may disappear mid-animation, bringing up the Pip-Boy immediately afterwards you will notice that you Pip-Boy has disappeared too (but not the screen). Changing to a different weapon quickly clears this bug. (confirmed PS3)
