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


It differs visually from the regular scientist glove in that it is a dark-grey color and bears a golden badge. Upon use it emits a small electronic pulse, much like that of the LAER, and frenzies enemies on a critical hit. Combined with its high critical multiplier, the Frenzy effect makes it very useful as a crowd control weapon.


  • Scientist glove, the common variant.
  • Corrosive glove, a quasi-unique 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. Klein's glove, a unique variant that used to belong to Dr. Klein (when he still had use for it) that lowers a targets Strength and DT against energy weapons upon a critical hit.
