Hockey masks are pieces of headwear in Fallout: New Vegas. Covering the face, they are off-white with red and blue stripes on it and have a worn appearance.


The benefits to the wearer of the hockey mask is that their Unarmed skill is raised by 5 points when equipped.


Behind the scenes

  • The hockey mask as raider headgear may be a reference to Lord Humungus, the villain in Mad Max 2(AKA The Road Warrior in the U.S.).
  • The 5 point skill increase in Unarmed is likely a reference to the fact that some hockey players have a tendency to get into fist-fights during a game. The involvement of a goalie in such altercations is very rare however.
  • The markings on the mask bear a striking resemblance to the "war paint" used by the street gang in Death Wish 3. This could be a coincidence, but due to the same colors and markings used it could be a unintentional design. Also, hockey masks in game are normally used by raiders who share much in common with the street gangs of Death Wish 3
