The medical brace is a miscellaneous item in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.


It is a crafting item which can be found in various locations throughout the Capital Wasteland, most notably used as a necessary component for creating the deathclaw gauntlet. There are actually two items called "medical brace". The first one is the one used for the deathclaw gauntlet, while the second one is a junk item only found in Raven Rock. They can be distinguished from each other by looking at their "value"-number: if it is worth 10, then it is the real thing; if it is worth 1, then it cannot be used to create custom weapons.

Regardless, both kinds of "medical brace" can be loaded into the Rock-It Launcher and used as ammunition.

Fallout: New Vegas

In Fallout: New Vegas, these are used in the recipe "doctor's bag".

In Fallout: New Vegas, a bonesaw is required for the side quest Restoring Hope.

Behind the scenes

The leg brace model used in the game is strikingly similar to the leg brace worn by Mad Max in The Road Warrior.
