For an overview of railguns in the Fallout series, see Railgun.
Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

The 15mm ARTEMIS rail gun is a weapon that was to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It also appears in the Van Buren tech demo game files.


The ARTEMIS project was an unfinished weapon project by Poseidon Energy and the Enclave.[1]


ARTEMIS was a weapon that could be constructed by science-oriented characters.[1] Schematics for the rail gun could be found in Mesa Verde.[2]


While it doesn't appear in the Van Buren tech demo, it is still present in the game files and can be spawned with the console command CreateEntity Weapons15mm_Artemis_railgun.wea, but remains a non-functional weapon.
