The Dragon is a ranged weapon in Fallout 76.

Background

The Dragon is an antique, muzzle-loading black powder rifle with four distinct barrels. It is loaded with .50 caliber balls.

Characteristics

Each shot from the Dragon releases four projectiles while consuming a single .50 caliber ball. Similar to shotguns, the damage dealt is divided evenly between each projectile. Despite this, the Dragon has the highest single-shot base damage among ballistic rifles. Its main drawback is the extremely long reload time, which takes approximately 10 seconds without Ground Pounder or Legendary effects.

Crafting

Locations

The Dragon cannot be obtained as a Legendary weapon from enemy drops, quest rewards or Purveyor picks. 1-star Dragons may only be acquired from the "Nuclear Surprise!" at the SMART choice machine in Watoga High School.[1]

Notes

  • Any Dragon with an attached bayonet is considered legacy content.
  • Legacy weapons have higher range of 419, while new world drop and vendor purchases are 228.[citation needed]
