Location[edit | edit source]
The Victory rifle is inside a locked (Very Hard) locker in the sniper shack overlooking Rockbreaker's Last Gas from a hill to the west. Getting it will require a Lockpick skill of 100. There is no key or trigger that will open the locker; however, Dogmeat can be told to find a weapon in the house and retrieves it from the locker. Star Paladin Cross, Jericho, Butch, and Clover will also pick it up to kill the caged radroaches.
