For the perk appearing in Fallout: New Vegas, see Spray 'n Pray.

The Spray n' Pray is a unique weapon in Fallout 4.


Spray n' Pray is a powerful legendary sub-machine gun sold by Cricket, or by other merchants. It is typically equipped with high-tier mods, such as a large quick-eject drum and a suppressor. However, it is open to further modifications from the weapons workbench if desired.

The weapon has the Explosive effect, in which each shot deals 15 points of area-of-effect explosive damage on impact. This can easily lead to friendly fire upon one's companions, oneself, or NPCs who are close to the target. It also benefits from the Demolition Expert perk. An additional benefit to its explosive ammo is that it causes most enemy types to stumble, effectively stunning them while being fired upon. This makes dealing with melee enemies that typically rush the Sole Survivor, like ghouls and mirelurks, much easier.



Spray n' Pray is sold by a wandering merchant by the name of Cricket. She has been known to set up shop in Bunker Hill, and can occasionally be found outside of Vault 81, Warwick Homestead, or Diamond City and throughout the Commonwealth. While extremely rare, one can also find it on random vendors. Also, one can be obtained by random legendary raiders common in or around "Diamond City".

  • Building a trade caravan post has the possibility to make her spawn randomly in the same settlement.

Behind the scenesEdit

"Spraying and praying" is a term used to describe when someone fires a fully automatic weapon in long bursts with little to no regard for accuracy in the hopes to score a hit.
