Paciencia is a unique weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on .
Gun Runners' Arsenal
Paciencia is a unique
hunting rifle. It has a three-round magazine, but boasts higher damage than the regular variant, as well as higher item HP. Its main advantage over the standard variant is its extremely high critical damage, which is an astounding 110 points, equal to the anti-materiel rifle. Due to its bonus critical chance, critical hits will be more common. It also has a 3.5x magnification when looking down the rifle's iron sights, equivalent to a top-tier scope. However, like many unique weapons, Paciencia cannot be modified using standard hunting rifle mods.
In appearance, it is less makeshift than regular hunting rifles. The pieces of metal and duct tape holding the barrel in place are absent as the barrel is in no state of disrepair, the stock is not damaged, and the wood is in far better condition. A
Mexican flag is also wrapped around the stock for use as a makeshift cheek rest. There also appears to be score marks just under the receiver, most likely a killcount.
Paciencia can fire a total of about 1,745 standard rounds, the equivalent of 582 reloads, from full
condition before breaking.

Paciencia, along with the anti-materiel rifle, has the highest critical damage in the game.
Paciencia, unlike the anti-materiel rifle, can be equipped with hollow point rounds. When this unique hunting rifle is equipped with hollow points, its critical damage is higher than the anti-materiel rifle's against most unarmored/lightly armored targets. With Better Criticals and HP rounds, it can even surpass the Anti-Materiel rifle against highly armored targets.
With the highest critical chance possible of 38% (10 Luck+ Finesse (perk)+ Built to Destroy+ Elite riot gear+ 1st Recon beret+ True Police Stories+ Comprehension), both available critical damage bonus perks for this weapon ( Better Criticals and Just Lucky I'm Alive) along with Hollow Point rounds, Fast Shot, and Rapid Reload, Paciencia can be one of the strongest firearms ingame, capable of 600 DPS/353 DPS (reload) against unarmored targets and 436 DPS/250 DPS (reload) against targets with 25DT without using any chems. Interestingly, HP rounds outperform both AP and JSP rounds in this scenario, even against targets with 25DT.
Behind the scenes Edit
In Spanish/Portuguese, Paciencia means "Patience". According to
Joshua Sawyer, it is named so "because you have three shots, so you had better make them count."
