Gatling's battery gun, or more simply the Gatling gun, is a weapon in Fallout 76.

Characteristics

An American Civil War era weapon designed by Dr. Richard Gatling and manufactured by Colt Patented Fire Arms,[1] the Gatling gun is rechambered to fire modern 5mm rounds instead of .45-70. The Gatling gun has been retrofitted with an electronic trigger similar to the broadsider, but retains its distinctive crank feed firing system.

Notes

The low rate of fire, combined with its lack of a wind-up and relatively high damage per shot, makes the Gatling gun very useful for conserving ammo.
