The Acceptable Overkill is a unique laser rifle in the Fallout 76 update Nuclear Winter.

The weapon was made available as a reward for completing the weekly challenge of "Kill different kinds of critters" in Survival mode from July 9 - 15, 2019. The weapon was then made available again from September 17 - 24, 2019.

Along with a calibrated capacitor being on it by default, the weapon is geared towards utilizing V.A.T.S and critical shots.
