The lever-action rifle is a high-powered rifle using the common 10mm round. It has a rather low rate of fire, as the action needs to be cycled after every shot, but makes up for it by being highly accurate, and having a large ammunition capacity. However, it will break easily.
The lever-action rifle has an object effect which inflicts an extra 35 damage per hit when used by non-player characters against the Lone Wanderer. This damage ignores Damage Resistance, and is independent of the condition of the weapon.
