The most powerful assault rifle in the game; after ammo modifiers it's significantly stronger than the next best choice, the [[H&K P90c]]. On the other hand, the even stronger [[Vindicator minigun (Fallout 2)|Vindicator minigun]] uses the same ammo, so you may want to save up for that. Incidentally, the P90c costs 1 AP less to fire.

Though an assault rifle in the real world, the H&K G11E found in post-[[Great War|War]] 23rd-century America is a high-end [[submachine gun]] that is one of the most versatile firearms in ''Fallout 2''. Its potent burst mode represents an effective compromise between economy and lethality, firing a frugal 7 rounds, each averaging 26.7 [[Hit point|Hit Points]] of damage, the second-highest damage-per-round of all burst-capable weapons in the game. Coupled with the [[4.7mm caseless|4.7mm caseless's]] penetrating power, this enables the weapon to retain its lethality against armor better than any other selective-fire weapon in the game, as well as making single-shot sniping a perfectly viable combat option, an option that remains available up to the weapon's considerably long maximum range of 40 hexes.

Thanks to the space savings afforded by the caseless cartridge, the magazine capacity of the G11E (as well as its [[H&K G11|regular variant]]) is the highest of any unmodified [[Small guns|small gun]] in the game, enabling it to fire 7 full bursts before reloading. Its burst attacks average around 175, 100 and 30 [[Hit Points|HP]] on soft tissue, [[Combat armor (Fallout)|medium armor]] and [[Advanced power armor Mk II (Fallout 2)|maximally heavy armor]], respectively.

Due to being a burst weapon and using the 4.7mm caseless, the G11E gains more than do most weapons from the [[Bonus Ranged Damage]] perk. This perk can be taken twice and it increases all ranged attacks' base damage per round by 2 HP per level for a maximum total of 4 HP, which in the H&K G11E's case is then multiplied by the 4.7mm caseless's [[Damage Modifier]] of 3/2, yielding a total bonus of 6 HP per bullet. This increases the weapon's average burst damage against unarmored, medium-armored and super-heavily armored foes to about 210, 130 and 50 HP, respectively.

This well-rounded weapon has no major weaknesses. Though 4.7mm caseless is quite rare and expensive in post-War Northern California, the G11E's ammo consumption is economical and it delivers the highest damage per round of all the weapons that use this ammunition.

This gun revolutionized squad level support weapon design. The gun fires a caseless cartridge consisting of a block of propellant with a bullet buried inside. The resultant weight and space savings allow it to have a very high magazine capacity.

The H&K G11E is a small gun in Fallout 2.

BackgroundEdit

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

Considered one of the "best assault weapons ever made,"[1] the H&K G11 is an assault rifle developed during the late 1960s by Heckler & Koch.[2] It has revolutionized assault weapon design and fires 4.7mm caseless cartridge, a round consisting of a block of propellant with a bullet buried inside.[3] The loading and feed mechanism is physically very complicated but exceptionally fast and reliable. Rounds are fed into the weapon from a magazine that lies above and parallel with the barrel.[2]

The rounds are oriented vertically (at 90 degrees to the bore) and are fed downwards into the rotary chamber so that they can be rotated 90 degrees for firing. Because the H&K G11 uses caseless ammunition, there are no extraction and ejection steps.[2] The resultant weight and space savings allow the H&K G11 to have a very high magazine of 50 rounds.[3]

CharacteristicsEdit

Though an assault rifle in the real world, the H&K G11E found in post-War 23rd-century America is a high-end submachine gun that is one of the most versatile firearms in Fallout 2. Its potent burst mode represents an effective compromise between economy and lethality, firing a frugal 7 rounds, each averaging 26.7 Hit Points of damage, the second-highest damage-per-round of all burst-capable weapons in the game. Coupled with the 4.7mm caseless's penetrating power, this enables the weapon to retain its lethality against armor better than any other selective-fire weapon in the game, as well as making single-shot sniping a perfectly viable combat option, an option that remains available up to the weapon's considerably long maximum range of 40 hexes.

Thanks to the space savings afforded by the caseless cartridge, the magazine capacity of the G11E (as well as its regular variant) is the highest of any unmodified small gun in the game, enabling it to fire 7 full bursts before reloading. Its burst attacks average around 175, 100 and 30 HP on soft tissue, medium armor and maximally heavy armor, respectively.

Due to being a burst weapon and using the 4.7mm caseless, the G11E gains more than do most weapons from the Bonus Ranged Damage perk. This perk can be taken twice and it increases all ranged attacks' base damage per round by 2 HP per level for a maximum total of 4 HP, which in the H&K G11E's case is then multiplied by the 4.7mm caseless's Damage Modifier of 3/2, yielding a total bonus of 6 HP per bullet. This increases the weapon's average burst damage against unarmored, medium-armored and super-heavily armored foes to about 210, 130 and 50 HP, respectively.

This well-rounded weapon has no major weaknesses. Though 4.7mm caseless is quite rare and expensive in post-War Northern California, the G11E's ammo consumption is economical and it delivers the highest damage per round of all the weapons that use this ammunition.

  • Originally, the weapon was supposed to belong to the Big Guns skill and have a bipod.
  • The real-world counterpart for the G11 is actually a rifle that was developed for the German Bundeswehr but was canceled because of defense budget cuts after the reunification. The E variant is specifically designed for Special Ops., equipped with a low-light scope and a suppressor. Neither of these features are present in the game, which is especially apparent when the G11E is compared to the FN FAL (night sight).

BugsEdit

Though not a bug particular to this weapon, all the burst weapons in Fallout 2 suffer from a bug whereby dead creatures obstruct burst fire as if they were standing up. Thus if a dead entity is located between the player and the intended target of his/her burst fire, that dead entity will block the majority of the rounds fired.
