The Avenger minigun or CZ57 Avenger[1][2] is a big gun in Fallout Tactics.

Background[edit | edit source]

This section is transcluded from Minigun. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Rockwell designed the 5mm CZ57[1] Avenger[2] as the replacement for their aging CZ53 personal minigun. The Avenger's design improvements include improved gel-fin cooling and chromium plated barrel-bores, giving it a greater range and lethality.[3] It also has an ammo capacity of 120x 5mm round like the earlier versions of the CZ53 model. Later models of CZ57 have a high-speed motor, a cage underneath to put the ammo box and used in combination with a backpack.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This variant of the Avenger, unlike the more common model, is chambered for 5.56mm bullets instead of 5mm.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Avenger might be named after the GAU-8 Avenger 30mm Gatling-type rotary cannon mounted on the A-10 Thunderbolt II.
