414px-Ripper FO3

A self-powered weapon with a metallic chain. It uses a power supply inside and thus doesn't require small energy cells and it can be used like a minature one handed chainsaw. Developed before the Great War, the ripper was most likely to be designed as an electric hedge trimmer or an electric cooking knife, however the Ripper has now found a new use as a somewhat powerful melee weapon. Raiders are very fond of this weapon and the cutting power that it has and use them for the thrills of cutting up bodies...alive. It can saw through people with relative ease, even with heavy armor, a person that is hit by this will most likely come out with a serious injury.
