The recharger rifle is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background[edit | edit source]

The recharger rifle is the first version[1] of a self-charging weapon with effectively limitless ammunition. As the first version of such a weapon, it suffers from a limited power capacity and low effectiveness of the built-in microfusion breeder. The microfusion breeder recharges at about one round every second, meaning a fully discharged rifle takes 7 seconds to recharge. Its evolved and far more advanced counterpart is the recharger pistol.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

It takes about one second to recharge, requiring the Courier to pace their shots to compensate.

Durability[edit | edit source]

The recharger rifle can fire approximately 370 times from full condition before breaking.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite its low damage, the gun can be fired very rapidly outside of V.A.T.S.
  • The recharger rifle is unaffected by the Laser Commander perk.
  • While much heavier and noticeably weaker per shot than the laser rifle, it does not require any ammunition to be carried.
