The higher your Throwing skill, the more likely you are to hurl a thrown weapon like a rock, Molotov cocktail or grenade exactly where you want to.Cut description from Fallout 3

Though the Throwing skill did not appear in Fallout 3, it remains in the game's resources, but is not included in the skill menu and is not used by any weapons or items. One NPC class, EnclaveBigGuns, includes Throwing as a tagged skill. The Vault Boy image that was to be associated with the skill was incorporated into the screen seen on Question 4 of the GOAT.

The editor "slot" used by the Throwing skill (including its Form ID) was later repurposed for the Survival skill in Fallout: New Vegas. The icon was re-used for the Heave, Ho! perk in the same game.

Behind the scenes

The skill was planned for inclusion in the canceled Van Buren game, but was called Missiles.
