Charged Playing Cards

Throwable playing cards seemed like a perfect, thematically-appropriate fit for New Vegas, but even though skilled card throwers can flick them hard enough to embed into a watermelon, that in and of itself didn't really seem interesting enough. So, taking inspiration from the X-Men comics character Gambit, I decided to make them explosive. Speaking in an exaggerated Cajun accent is optional, mon cheri.

Parts Used

I started with one of the base game Caravan card meshes and played around with the positioning until it looked right in the player's hand. I then rigged it to use the same animation set as the Throwing Knife.

Perks and Challenges

The following properties, perks and challenges apply to this weapon:

Usage Notes

The Deck of Cards miscellaneous item can be found in random loot drops or vendors' junk inventory. On its own, this item is nothing more than vendor trash, worth ten Caps. But, with the “Death Dealer” perk selected, each Deck of Cards in your inventory will be automatically converted into 52 Charged Playing Cards.


This weapon can only be obtained with the Wild Wasteland trait selected during character creation.

With the Wild Wasteland trait, the “Death Dealer” perk is unlocked at Level 2. Selecting this perk will automatically convert each Deck of Cards in your inventory into 52 Charged Playing Cards.
