Yes, what is the best weapons in fallout?

the best thing about fallout 3 is that there is no such thing. it's all about your character, skills, stats, gaming style, vats/no vats, etc. your choice really Perj 10:02, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

But there is. It dosen't matter what kind of character or game-style you have, there are weapons which simply are the best. Some of which are Jack The Ripper/Man-opener (With PL perks) and Metal Blaster. And this isn't about opinions. This is about the facts. So for example, Metal Blaster has way more clipsize and fire rate than Lincolns Repeater and +5 more damage. No matter how much love you have for the old gold gun The Blaster is better. And it's a shotgun, well, with 1000 Item HP it's better than any other shotgun due to it not craving to eat one of it's brethren shotguns to stay alive (repair). So hell, someone prove with the real facts and not opinions that some weapon is better than MB in ItemHP Dmg Crit% CritDmg EasyToRepair RateOfFire Capacity AP UseOfAmmmo. 12:41, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

If you put it that way then it would be the Alien Blaster because Mothership Zeta since it introduced Alien Epoxy which can respawn when you go to the Engine room and there are two aliens there.Doctalen 16:42, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

Actually the best weapon in the game is the firelance with the Pyromaniac Perk, second only to the Fat Man of course.Kill the overseer! 17:15, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

There is no perfect weapon. It all depends on the situation. The metal blaster is, as said, a shotgun. I'm pretty sure, the only shotgun that can shoot a raider about 40m away(from top of tenpenny tower) and kill it is Charons. So it's only good at medium range. The alien blaster has limited ammo, so should be used for deathclaws, reavers, and other extremely hard enemies. You can't have a weapon that's good for everything, but you can have different weapons that solve problems better. I choose the Backwater Rifle, because it has the properties of Lincoln's Repeater, but uses he most common source of ammo in the wasteland. In part, i choose it because it looks good with the Tenpenny Suit XD --Demos99 17:40, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

Well then, two sections, close to mid-range and mid to long-range. 19:31, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

If you have Grim Reaper's Sprint, Blackhawk is a great weapon. Good for short or long distance. Uses a lot of action points, but if it kills every time and GRS resets your AP, beautiful. LVTDUDE 21:12, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

I would have to say A3-21's plasma rifle. If u have grim reapers sprint, combined with action boy,ranger combat armor,lucky 8 ball, if the total gives you 10 luck and if you have plenty of weapons for repairs and ammo you are set. That combo works for me with close-moderately long range perfectly. In the capitol building I can wipe out groups of Talons in single rounds of VATS and get all my AP recharged from GRS. You might not think this but that is the best combo for me and what I think is the best weapon under the right circumstances. Silent.Killa78 21:51, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

A3-21's is one of my favorites, too, but it is fairly useless at a distance if you aren't in VATS. Plasma burst move too slowly. It is fun to dodge your opponents plasma shots like Remo Williams, though. LVTDUDE 16:27, October 17, 2009 (UTC)

I believe the best weapon is the Atomic Pulverizer. When you have all AP boosts, it does almost as much damage as a Fat Man(Around 1500), and you take 10% damage from all the time you stay in VATS mode (Which is a lot considering you need to get off all ~22 shots as well as a reload). A weapon of both defensive and offensive magnificence. The Terrible Shotgun can do insane amount of damage while sneaked. Though, a real gamebreaker is any silenced weapon (a la Jingwei's Shocksword or such) with 100 in sneak and Chinese Stealth armor on. It is nearly impossible for the ennemies to notice you with this comibnation. Though that is no longer the individual weapon. Anonymous23:37, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

It all depends on your play style, With Broken Steel the level cap is increased to 30 so i managed to get all weapon skills up to 100, except for explosives, So i pick and choose, My most effective weapon has to be either the Perforator (The Pitt Addon) or The Dart Rifle because they are both silent and can be very lethal combined with 100 Sneak and Chinese Stealth Suit (Operation: Anchorage) but i Occasionally go in, "all guns blazing" with a Gatling Laser and Winterized T-51b.

No love for the Gauss Rifle. I pretty much only use that, plus Action Girl, and GRS. If it doesn't kill them they'll atleast be knocked down long enough for your AP to rechage enough. I can kill a Deathcalw in 2 hits. 1 will knock him down in V.A.T.S and the other one kills him just by aiming. Radscorpions become a lot easier when they lie knocked down every shot, I generally never take a hit from them and I can be standing about 3 feet away. The only problem I ever do have is with the Feral Ghoul Reavers, I'm not sure if they can be knocked down, but I can never get them to. -Anonymous
