A weapon produced by Fabrique Nationale.
The FN FAL HPFA is a heavy-duty assault rifle chambered in the 7.62mm cartridge. It is the only weapon in the game that empties its whole magazine (20 rounds) in a single burst. Changes from the standard FN FAL include the doubled burst size (20 rounds versus 10) and a moderate damage-per-shot increase.
It has an average burst damage on soft and medium-armored targets of 280 and 150 Hit Points, respectively. The FN FAL HPFA is the only small gun in Fallout 2 that can exceed 1000 HP of damage upon Critical Hit without the help of damage-boosting perks. It is not as effective against very heavy armor, unless critical hits are scored.
- This version of the FN FAL cannot be upgraded.
- When examined, the FN FAL HPFA doesn't have a description.[verified]
