That DPS figure of 106 looks awfully low - I would say, based on the figures I see in pipboy (67 Dmg, 209 DPS), that's supposed to be 206. 19:35, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Not necessarily, in the Pip-Boy the Gauss Rifle has a DPS of over 400, but realistically it's nowhere near that. (As demonstrated on the page). Smuff [The cake is a lie.] 19:47, November 8, 2010 (UTC)
The page shows the base stats, as stated in the GECK. DPS is affected by perks like Rapid Reload. Oneiros42 19:51, November 8, 2010 (UTC)
Actually I realised after I posted it's presumably affected by AP - I, of course, have Kamikaze and a high Agility. 08:05, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
im not sure either of you are correct really, since i have rapid reload, fast shot, action boy, 10 agility, math wrath, and so on with it still sitting at 206 fully repaired for me.
That DPS figure of 106 is pulled from the GECK directly; but the GECK doesn't calculate the DPS properly. I'll look over the article and make the necessary changes, if needed. --Kris User Hola 21:56, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, the DPS was off but only by a negligible amount (.07). --Kris User Hola 21:59, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

i have actually taken to using this as an all purpose weapon, both for long and short range fighting. the CDN degrade is slow enough with this compared to the standard sniper that its not really detrimental to do so.

considering the massive crit rate, high damage, and it being semi-automatic with a very fast reload time ive just been hip-shooting when things get close. even in vats its barely more AP than a ranger sequoia and i have pretty much every possible trait and perk to reduce AP costs and give me more AP so it works fine.

the crit rate is really what sets this thing off as an all purpose weapon. true a ranger sequoia has slightly higher damage, i get a crit almost every single shot with the gobi and with improved criticals perk actually do more damage.

not to mention .45-70 ammo is a pain in the backside to keep stocked, while .308 ammo is practically falling out of your pockets.

Maybe I am just lucky, but at the Gun Runners, they stock my .45-70 ammo at about 100 rounds per restock. I can keep it fairly well stocked, though I eat through it pretty quickly,...And .308, God, you ca't get rid of it fast enough. Literally. Troy242621 12:47, January 9, 2011 (UTC)

Repair categoriesEdit

-it says that with jury rigging this can be repaired with any 2 handed weapon. this is incorrect as it will not allow me to repair it with varmint rifles or hunting rifles. it will allow me to repair it using service rifles, marksmans carbines, and the like.

Two handed guns are two handed weapons that are not bolt/lever action. the link shows the category and all weapons that fall under it. --Saphireking65 23:16, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
Two handed guns should be renamed then, because that title is extremely misleading, especially when it includes things like an SMG.
I agree, but it is currently the best way to name the category, bring it up on the Jury Rigging page. --Saphireking65 18:43, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

Pure Speculation (Boone Spoilers) Edit

Purely as an excercise in hypothetical thinking...

This is Boone's sniper rifle. This is the gun that killed his wife.

Consider: Boone's wife was kidnapped by the Legion and taken to a slave camp.

Consider: Boone is an ex-NCR sniper. And a damn good one, judging by his performance as a companion.

Consider: To prevent his wife form being made a Legion slave, Boone shot her.

Consider: When going into Cottonwood Cove, Boone says things to the effect of 'This is a Legion slaver camp. I have been here before.'

Consider: On the slopes above Cottonwood Cove is Snipers Nest. Where we find this gun.

Hypothesis, based on the above: Boone trailed the Legion party that kidnapped his wife to Cottonwood Cove. There he set up Snipers Nest, waited for his shot, and then took it. Afterwards he locked this gun in a chest and left it, it's final job done.

Just a thought exercise I thought I would share. Zero hard proof, lots of circumstantial hints and conjecture. 23:20, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

I don't understand the point of your comment. It's already stated on the weapon page that this is likely the gun Boone shot his wife with. What else are you trying to say? Oneiros42 00:52, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

i think it was added AFTER he made this comment...? 07:34, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

No, I added it some days ago. Oneiros42 07:36, November 10, 2010 (UTC)
Yup it was in there before I said anything. I just didnt check the article since I figured something based on 100% speculation would be included. No proof etc. 02:22, November 13, 2010 (UTC)

If you read the Bill of Sale when doing the quest for Boone, if you did that is. It says that it was for the sale of Carla Boone and the unborn child. I'm sure Boone knew of his child and that is an added reason why he shot her. It is speculation for he may not have known but in my opinion both is a good enough reason, however emotionally devastating it may be, to shoot his wife.

why was the notes section deleted? Edit

It simply pointed out that the rifle in terms of location was similar to the victory rifle, and pointed out facts to back it up, it is in a "very hard" locked container, in the snipers nest, while the victory rifle was in a very hard container in a snipers shack, shouldn't similarities like that be noted in these articles?Superinsomniac 09:17, November 11, 2010 (UTC)

All of which is true, none of which relevant. --Kris User Hola 02:41, November 13, 2010 (UTC)

I don't mean to nitpick, but where did the information about a maintenance kit in the stock come from? It does add character to the page, but is there any source for this information? Zac hemker 17:54, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

I vaguely remember one of the devs mentioning it back pre-release. YuriKaslov 18:25, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

Gobi Disappearing? Edit

I gave the Gobi to Boone when I was able to start using the Anti Materiel, and he's used it quite a long time. Just this morning I noticed that Boone no longer has it. I know for sure I wouldn't have accidentally sold it. Never even had a reason to remove it from him. Could it be knocked off in a melee fight or something like that? I used the console to get it back and give it back to him but I'm curious if anybody else has experienced this. --ZappaFan 11:46, March 3, 2011 (UTC)

Just read this:

Sometimes, when using the console command, your followers' apparel or weapons will reset to their original state. Therefore losing the items you gave them which they were equipped with, the inventory will not be changed if the follower was not wearing or using the item.

That's probably what happened with me. --ZappaFan 11:46, March 3, 2011 (UTC) I had that happen too.I had Cass hold it for me while we did a quest in Gomorrah.Later on I went to move it to my inventory and it was gone.What happened? Alpha957 (talk) 00:02, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

I've had the Gobi disappear on me too, and it wasn't related to console commands. You know how your weapons are temporarily confiscated when you enter a cascino? Well, for some reason the Gobi rifle doesn't get returned when you leave, at least that has been my experience. I know it happened every time it was in Boone's inventory, I made a couple saves to test it. I think it happened when I took it from him before handing over my weapons too, but I'm not sure on that part. So I'm rather certain it is directly related to turning your weapons in at the cascino, but I'm not certain whether the matter of your companion having it instead of you makes a difference. (guest know as yami no tenchi) 4:22, May 29, 2015

I've had several unique weapons never returned after entering/leaving a casino. As matter of habit now, I park them somewhere safe beforehand. 10:46, October 2, 2015 (UTC)

Gobi sucks Edit

Isn't this inferior to modded sniper rifle in every single way? except slightly lowered ap cost?

Seriously dude, try reading the article

0 Spread? Edit

Absolutely no spread? Is this for real? 01:18, April 27, 2011 (UTC)

It is someone getting confused between spread and min spread in the GECK. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 01:20, April 27, 2011 (UTC)

Verification. Edit

Someone added that the Gobi Rifle was used by Boone on mercenary assignments, i'm going to remove it until this can be verified, someone correct me of course if i'm just wrong.Forgotten 17:07, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

Boon Myth Edit

Until proof is given that the rifle is in fact Boon's, all references to it in the article will be removed. --Saphireking65 09:59, August 1, 2011 (UTC)

There are tons of pages on this and pretty much all video game Wiki's that use note or trivia sections to speculate on things that only have circumstantial evidence. However, based on the sheer amount of circumstantial evidence, I don't understand why you guys were nitpicking in such an extreme way as to remove what is likely the most probable guess based on only circumstantial evidence as there ever was in the Fallout universe... What's more, it doesn't look like this information was removed from the page by anyone with authority on this wiki (i.e. mod or admin). This kind of thing shouldn't be done except by Wiki staff, who are also in charge or rollback for bad edits. As such, I'm going to put this information back until a staff member says otherwise. Ulithium Dragon (talk) 08:45, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Speculation is to be left off of the pages. Great Mara (talk) 08:55, May 29, 2014 (UTC)
Furthermore, there is nothing solid linking it to Boone over the snipers that were to be at the location. And as to your invalid point with no one with authority removing it. At the point where GhostAvatar removed this bit of speculation before, he was an admin here. Great Mara (talk) 09:08, May 29, 2014 (UTC)
I need to clear up a bit about this "wiki staff" bit. Wikia staff do no edit our wiki. They mostly stay off wikis with active sysops like ours. About the only thing they do is clean up cross wiki spammers. We control the content of the wiki, decide what is appropriate for the pages and what is not. And by "we" I mean the entire community, by enacting the policies we follow by consensus. When it comes to editing, sysops, admins, moderators, whatever you want to call them, have no more "power" than any other editor. They have tools to deal with the spammers, trolls and other problematic users, but they do not inherently have more authority than other editors. Any editor, who is properly using our editing guidelines and policies, has every right to, and will, remove speculation that breaks those policies. As it stands, the editor above does hold extra rights here, as a patroller, and they have proven to the wiki that they understand the policies and guidelines and have gained the rights to patrol edits and revert by the trust the wiki places in them. Regardless of how you may believe this wiki does or should work, you are incorrect in your assumptions and I would appreciate it if you would keep in mind our policies when you edit. Thank you. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 20:12, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Jury Rigging This Weapon Edit

PS3: I have tried to repair this weapon using the Service Rifle, Assault Carbine, and the Riot Shotgun, to no avail. My repair is 100, and XP level 21. Perhaps an edit to the page is in order.

Works for me. Are you sure you have the Jury Rigging perk and not just theJury Rigger achievement? UserGreatMara9mm Pistol 18:44, August 7, 2011 (UTC)
