The lever-action rifle is a weapon which is added to Fallout 3 with the Point Lookout add-on.

Characteristics

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.

Durability

The lever-action rifle can fire a total of about 250 rounds, the equivalent of 25 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

Variants

  • Point Lookout (add-on) Backwater rifle - An all-around better lever-action rifle. It does more damage, is more durable, and is slightly lighter.
  • Lincoln's repeater - While strictly a lever-action rifle that uses .44 Magnum rounds, Lincoln's repeater is only repairable with hunting rifles. It's very powerful and very accurate.
