The Steel Knuckles are a set of unarmed weapons in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt. They are a variant of common Brass Knuckles.


The Steel Knuckles do slightly more damage per hit than their Brass or Spiked counterparts, but really shine when used in V.A.T.S. The Steel Knuckles use only 14 AP to be swung, giving them one of the lowest AP costs for any weapon. As such, they're great to use with the Paralyzing Palm perk.



  • Upon selecting the Steel Knuckles from your Pipboy, they make the same sound when selected as when you select a heavy weapon like a Minigun or a Gatling Laser.
  • This weapon cannot be used to repair ordinary Brass Knuckles, but the Brass Knuckles can be used to repair the Steel Knuckles. (Unconfirmed, PC)
