This Machine is a unique battle rifle in Fallout: New Vegas.

CharacteristicsEdit

This Machine is a unique battle rifle chambered in .308 caliber round, holding up to eight rounds at a time and is received in excellent condition thanks to Contreras' personal access to parts. Along the rifle's left side are the words "WELL THIS MACHINE KILLS COMMIES," seeming to imply that this gun was used by American soldiers during the Resource Wars. This rifle is effective in short-to-mid range combat. However, long range combat is difficult because of the gun's relatively wide spread.

Without Gun Runners' Arsenal, This Machine has no non-unique counterpart.

DurabilityEdit

This Machine can fire a total of about 2995 standard rounds, the equivalent of 375 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Although based off the M1 Garand, This Machine is not an exact reproduction.[1]
  • Though commonly chambered in .30-06, some M1 Garands did in fact see conversion to .308 for Navy use due to a limited availability of the M14 in the 1950's.
  • This Machine has the exact same weight as the official weight in pounds of the M1 Garand, loads through the top of the weapon with the exact same en bloc 8-round clip, and makes the exact same distinctive "ping" when it automatically ejects the clip after firing the last round. It also has about the same cyclic rate of fire as the M1 Garand, 40-50 rounds per minute.
  • This Machine is a reference to Woodie Guthrie's guitar, which had a sticker stating "This Machine Kills Fascists" emblazoned on it. This Machine has the statement "Well This Machine Kills Commies" seemingly phrased as a direct reply, carved into its side.
  • In the game's files, as well as the G.E.C.K, This Machine is referred to as "WeapNVBattleRifleUnique," hinting that it was originally supposed to be the unique variant of a cut "battle rifle." The battle rifle later appears in Gun Runners' Arsenal as the common variant, albeit exclusively available from merchants.
