The scope on the weapon dramatically increases the weapon's accuracy at range, allowing one to reach 95% accuracy at long range even with a relatively low skill. It has a drawback, however, as once the distance to the target gets below 8 meters, the aiming accuracy receives a huge penalty, rendering this weapon almost useless at close range, even with a high Small Guns skill.
- One can be obtained from a quest in Broken Hills, given by Marcus if one chooses not to take the money at the end of the quest.
- Skeeter in Gecko, Eldridge and Algernon in New Reno can all upgrade a normal hunting rifle. This is also the only weapon that Buster in NCR can upgrade. Strangely, Valerie in Vault City cannot upgrade it for some reason.
- While the Pip-Boy description of the weapon refers to the scope as a Loophole x20 scope, Buster claims that he mounts a Triveld x10 scope.
