The Highwayman's Friend is a weapon found in Fallout 3.
It is a unique tire iron. Although unique and therefore more damaging than a normal tire iron, it's still not a highly damaging weapon, but it does have a rapid attack.
Behind the scenes
- A "(insert profession's) friend" is a fairly common way to refer to that profession's most-used tool. See, for example, "plumber's friend".
- A highwayman is a robber who preys on travelers, although in this case it is likely also in reference to the Highwayman vehicle obtainable in Fallout 2.
Sometimes the weapon does not appear in game.
