** Explosives in general could be considered this. They hit harder than virtually every other weapon type in the game but are also generally rare, expensive, and/or require sacrificing ammunition for other weapons. The hand held variety has weight for each individual explosive, which adds up and can take up a large chunk of your inventory. Most of them are only useful at mid range when most enemies will either be fighting you at long or close range. They only really become viable once you have access to a reliable source of missiles/25-40mm grenades but by then you've got a dozen other weapons that can get the job done safer, easier, and cheaper.

** The weapons added by the ''Courier's Stash'' DLC, available from the very start of the game, fit the bill. In particular, the Broad Machete, Weathered 10mm Pistol, and Sturdy Caravan Shotgun are more than enough to get the player through the early stages of the game, at least to New Vegas, before they start becoming outclassed. Another bonus is that they each come in perfect condition, while very few other weapons available that early do.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: It could be an InUniverse example, but the Survivalist's Rifle found in the ''Honest Hearts'' DLC has the French word "Arrêt !" engraved on its stock. It is obviously meant to be translated from the English "Halt !", but the correct French word to use would simply have been "Halte !". "Arrêt !" isn't valid as a verb, and "Arrêtez !" would just sound weird, even though it ''does'' mean "Stop !".

"Arrêt !" isn't valid as a verb, and "Arrêtez !" would just sound weird, even though it ''does'' mean "Stop !". "Arrêt", however, is used instead of "Stop" on road signs in Québec and the word has been carved hastily on the stock, so the Survivalist might just have been posted in Québec and used the first thing he saw to convey the message of "Stop or you will be shot."

** The Remnants PowerArmor. It offers 5 points higher DT than the T-51b power armor, but weighs 6 pounds more, has 13% less rad resistance and dings your Charisma by 1 where the T-51b raises it by 1. Quite a few people end up preferring the T-51b because of that.
