Whistle in the Dark was a time-exclusive unique assault rifle in the Fallout 76 updates Nuclear Winter and returned in One Wasteland For All.

The weapon was made available as a reward for completing the weekly challenge of "Covert Action" in Survival mode from June 25 to July 1, 2019. The weapon was then made available again from August 20 to August 27, 2019. A craftable version was introduced with One Wasteland For All as part of Daily Ops.

Characteristics

The assault rifle is a water-cooled, gas-operated rifle featuring a side-mounted magazine firing 5.56mm rounds, anti-aircraft gun style sights, a telescoping wooden stock and charging handle as standard.

This unique legendary weapon does increasing amounts of damage as the night grows longer, but less damage during the day, has +33% VATS hit chance, and +1 Perception.

The One Wasteland For All variant shares the same statistics and primary weapon mods with the original weapon, but has an orange and yellow Settler paint scheme. While it can be crafted, it cannot be dropped, traded, or sold to vendors. The legacy version obtained prior to One Wasteland does not have the Settler paint scheme, but can be dropped, traded, and sold to vendors.
