Background[edit | edit source]
The Type 93 Chinese assault rifle was designed and manufactured by a Chinese industrial conglomerate for the People's Liberation Army during the Resource Wars, for the purpose of equipping the Chinese infiltrators and American fifth-columnists. To this end, it was chambered for the abundant 5.56mm round and utilizes a 24-round magazine. Thousands of these weapons were smuggled into the US for use by Chinese operatives and sympathizers on the East Coast, and many remain functional even two hundred years after the Great War. These rifles are also proven to be ready for manufacturing in post-War conditions.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The Type 93 Chinese assault rifle is a second-tier, general-purpose, automatic firearm. Chambered for 5.56mm ammunition, it is the most powerful of the generic assault rifles in base damage and DPS. With a weapon spread of 1.5, it is a somewhat inaccurate weapon. It is the third least durable 5.56mm weapon. Regardless, it remains a formidable automatic weapon for any Small Guns character for the entire game.
In the add-on Operation: Anchorage, certain weapons were re-skinned to make them look like actual pre-War weapons. The Chinese assault rifle is among the small group that was chosen for use in the add-on. The Lone Wanderer can use it during the first part of the add-on.
The new looks include brown-colored hand and foregrips, and the outer bluing is a darker black with fewer scratches than the post-War version. The stats and names are exactly the same, but the durability (as with every in-simulation item) is infinite, making the weapon (almost) impervious to damage and frequent use.
Durability[edit | edit source]
The Chinese assault rifle can fire a total of about 1,212 rounds, the equivalent of 51 reloads, from full condition, before breaking.
Variants[edit | edit source]
- Xuanlong assault rifle - available by completing the unmarked quest Jiggs' Loot. It has a 36 round magazine and the highest damage of any automatic small gun.
- Jericho's Chinese assault rifle - a variant used by Jericho.
- Sim version - a sim-only version of the weapon which differs only in health (essentially non-degrading). It also has a barely noticeable winterized color scheme on the stock and foregrip, and a much cleaner finish on the receiver and barrel.
|The following is based on Fallout 3 cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
- High damage - an additional variant with 1000 damage can also be found in Operation: Anchorage, used in the
DLC02TrenchClimberTrig02SCRIPTand cannot be obtained under normal circumstances.
- Dragoon - a variant named Chinese Dragoon assault rifle can be found in the data files for Operation: Anchorage. It uses the Anchorage-specific texture for the weapon, but aside from name and appearance, it is identical to the standard Chinese assault rifle. It is likely the weapon was intended to be placed in the armory with other "wasteland" versions of weapons found in the Anchorage sim, most of which were cut from the final version of the add-on; as such, the weapon can only be accessed through the use of console commands.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Despite having a folding metal stock in-game, the Pip-Boy icon shows the Chinese assault rifle with a solid stock.
- Although not a functional weapon in Fallout: New Vegas, the Chinese assault rifle makes a brief appearance in the game. During the quest How Little We Know, the Courier can cause a stockpile of weapons to be destroyed using thermite. Afterward, if examined closely, the barrel and the iron sight of a Chinese assault rifle can be seen extending from one of the resulting piles of debris.
- A weapon of similar nature was planned for Fallout 4, but was cut before release.
- Likewise, a version was meant to appear in Fallout 76, but only exists as texture files.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
- PC Playstation 3 Xbox 360 In close quarters conditions, the rifle can clip targets or level geometry. This causes all shots to miss the target or be absorbed by geometry, even when the muzzle protrudes beyond the obstruction. [verified]
- Xbox 360 Removal from inventory, or storage in a gun cabinet such as can be found in Outcast Outpost, can mysteriously and significantly degrade the condition of the rifle. Similar degradation can occur by manipulating the rifle with the grab tool.
