The Whistle in the Dark is a rifle in Fallout 76.

Although first introduced in the Nuclear Winter update as a Survival mode challenge reward, it was reintroduced with a new paint scheme in One Wasteland For All as a Daily Ops reward.

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.
