This section is transcluded from Sniper rifle. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The sniper rifle is a scoped rifle found in the Capital and Mojave Wastelands. Chambered for .308 ammunition, it is semi-automatic with a five-round magazine.


While identical in damage to the sniper rifle, the Victory rifle has triple the item HP and knocks down targets with Critical hits. However, it pays for this ability with a reduced Critical Multiplier of 3.


The Victory rifle can fire a total of about 250 shots, the equivalent of 50 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

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.
