The Red Ryder BB gun is a BB gun made by Daisy Outdoor Products and introduced in 1938 that resembles the Winchester rifle of Western movies. Named for the comic strip cowboy character Red Ryder, it is arguably the most famous BB gun in American history.
The Red Ryder BB gun has good magazine capacity, but it is almost useless in-game because of a very low damage potential. The LE variant performs much better.
One gun is found in a wooden box at the "Car mart" random encounter. Another is in a possesion of a child in Shady Sands (Entrance map).
The Red Ryder BB Gun can be found in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, and Fallout: New Vegas
Behind the scenes
- The Red Ryder BB gun is named after the real life Red Ryder BB gun.
- The Red Ryder BB gun is also a powerful weapon obtainable in Wasteland, the predecessor game to the Fallout series. In Highpool, the party has to fight the child whose dog (Rex) "was gunned down by vigilante Rangers," or it could be acquired via cheat.
- The Red Ryder himself is another reference to the BB gun and Wasteland. He shows up to fight the Rangers in revenge should they murder the children making fun of them after falling into the river.
