| ||For an overview of assault rifle models in various games, see assault rifle.|
The only thing really special about this weapon is its superior damage per shot compared to the AK-112 assault rifle. Its range and capacity is inferior, however.
By the time it can be acquired, the XL70E3 will be going up against advanced power armor. As such, it will not be used much. Against the leather jacket-wearing vagrants, however, the 5mm lead will fare much better.
- One of the black-haired female vagrants on the tanker in San Francisco has one, but it has to be looted (cannot be stolen from her.)
- Sometimes randomly encountered merchants outside of San Francisco may have this weapon for sale.
Behind the ScenesEdit
The XL70E3 is based on the RSAF Enfield XL70E3, a prototype version of the SA80 family of firearms adopted by the British Armed Forces in 1987. Contrary to the description, pre-2000 models gained a notorious reputation for being fragile and unreliable. Unlike its fictional counterpart, the SA80 is chambered for 5.56 NATO ammunition.
