Dr. Klein's glove is a unique weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


It looks like a blue rubber glove connected by an armband of the same material and the same color, and covered with an unknown shiny chemical product. It has "Dr.K" written on the side. Also, it is somewhat "cleaner" in appearance than the regular scientist glove.

It does the most damage of all the scientist gloves. Upon scoring a critical hit, the unknown chemical agents inflict stat damage to the victim, reducing their Strength by 2 points, and their Damage Threshold against Energy Weapons by 5 points.


  • Scientist glove, the common variant.
  • Corrosive glove, a quasi-unique green variant that deals caustic acid damage over time upon a critical hit.
  • Sterilizer glove, a quasi-unique red variant that sets targets on fire following a critical hit.
  • Dr. Mobius' glove, a unique variant that used to belong to Dr. Mobius (back when he had arms) that is significantly more damaging and frenzies targets upon a critical hit.
