The M1 Garand is a Small Guns skill weapon in Fallout Tactics.

Background[edit | edit source]

The M1 Garand, nicknamed "the greatest battle implement ever devised," was created in 1936 by John Cantius Garand and was the first semi-automatic rifle to be generally issued into the U.S. Army. It is a .30-06 gas-operated, semi-automatic, 8 shot clip-fed rifle. It provides good accuracy up to 100 yards and begins to decline sharply from 330 yards. It has a respectable rate of fire and is also easy to disassemble and clean.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The M1 Garand has an aiming bonus when used at long ranges. This comes with a close range aiming penalty which is higher than the standard penalty of other ranged weapons. This limits the Garand to be most effective as a long range sniping weapon.

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Peoria, in a locker near the second fusion battery at the southwest part of the underground level.
  • Quincy, carried by two beastlords. One is outside the town hall, while another is atop the detention center.
  • Mardin, carried by five beastlords.
