Message FilePRO ITEM.MSG

The Cat's Paw is a Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics item. It can be found in one location in Fallout and is part of two side-quests in Fallout 2.


In Fallout, the item is quite mysterious, and the only descriptions are "You have no idea" and "Upon further inspection, you still have no idea what this is." In Fallout 2, Cat's Paw is understood to be a pornographic magazine.

In Fallout 2, if you collect 10 magazines and bring them to Miss Kitty, you can receive a special Cat's Paw Issue No.5 "that contains a very interesting article on energy weapons" in New Reno. Typhon in Broken Hills will also ask you to find an issue for him.

Behind the scenes

Cat's Paw is actually a real-life brand of rubber heels manufactured in Canada. The image for the item in Fallout appears on the box for a pair of those heels.
