Saturnite Fist Super-Heated

You want some weapon schematics? I can show you some fucking weapon schematics! You want a superheated Saturnite Power Fist? I can hook that shit up!Toaster

The Saturnite Fist Super-Heated is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


This weapon is an upgrade of Saturnite Fist, overheated by a process only known by the Toaster in the Sink. This fist now inflicts fire damage, but while the saturnite material keeping the heat remains intact, the mechanism is damaged, causing a loss of attack speed, although it still attacks faster than the regular Power Fist.


Compared to the original Saturnite Fist, it has less durability and lower attack speed, but inflicts much more normal and critical damage. It will set foes on fire upon a critical strike, inflicting 2 points of fire damage for 5 seconds.

While the original fist can be found all around Big MT (specifically looted from Lobotomite corpses), the super-heating process can only be performed by the Toaster in the Sink.


  • When going through the process of overheating a Saturnite Fist, the super-heated version will always come out at 85% condition, regardless of what condition it was prior to being overheated.
  • After being worn for a small period of time, the red heated area will dim, however, the special effects will persist.
  • With the Pyromaniac perk, it has higher damage than a Ballistic Fist, with a faster attack speed, less AP used in V.A.T.S. and lower requirements for the Strength stat and Unarmed skill.
  • This fist counts as an improved holdout weapon.
  • Like the Power Fist and Ballistic Fist, the Super-Heated Saturnite Fist clips into T-51b Power Armor and Remnants Power Armor, making it look like it was crafted into the armor.
  • If one has met the requirements for special unarmed attacks (uppercut and cross), the normal attack will not execute and instead will use these, which are faster than the basic strike.
  • The heating process does not hurt the Courier, even though they are not wearing any protection on their hand.
  • Even though it is a Power Fist variant, its kills do not contribute to the challenge Vault 13's Revenge.
