The All-American is the unique variant of the semi-automatic marksman carbine with woodland camouflage, a magazine capacity of 24, and a higher magnification scope. It also bears the distinctive 82nd "All-American" Airborne division insignia.
It is highly accurate, reliable, and powerful with its fast rate of fire and low Action Point cost, making it one of the most versatile weapons in the game. This versatility includes the wide range of 5.56mm ammunition types; characters should be sure to stock up on different 5.56mm variants to utilize this weapon to its full potential.
The All-American can fire a total of about 1995 standard rounds, the equivalent of 84 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

It is located in Vault 34's armory (opened with the overseer's terminal), on an overturned table to the right side of the armory. If a human or ghoul companion is following when the armory is accessed, they may pick up the All-American. Also, the ghouls can kick around the weapon, and explosions can send it flying, so if the gun isn't on the table or in a companion's inventory, make sure to search the armory thoroughly.
- The scope has the same crosshairs and 3.5x magnification as the sniper rifle and the Gobi Campaign scout rifle.
- When experiencing a malfunction with the All-American (or any other weapons which share its reload animation) the Courier will use proper procedure and utilize the forward assist to fully seat the bolt carrier group.
Behind the scenes
- Its name is a reference to the 82nd Airborne Division, nicknamed the "All-American" division because upon activation in 1917 it was found to contain draftees from all forty-eight states then recognized.
- The All-American was designed by J.E. Sawyer.
- When equipped, the Airborne decal on the gun is replaced by a copy of the gun's texture sheet. [verified]
- When going into zoom mode with the weapon equipped, a blank terminal screen may come up (re-loading the last save will fix this). [verified]
- When dropped, it can disappear for no apparent reason (re-loading a previous save may fix this). [verified]
