The Xuanlong assault rifle is a unique Chinese assault rifle in Fallout 3.


The Xuanlong assault rifle is a general-purpose automatic firearm. Chambered for the same 5.56mm round as other assault rifles, it is the overall most powerful weapon in this class. The Xuanlong has the same AP cost, spread and critical multiplier as all other assault rifles. It also has the same low durability as regular Chinese assault rifles, being the second most fragile assault rifle in the game.

Although repairing this weapon can be difficult at lower levels, at higher levels, one can find spare Chinese assault rifles more often. The Xuanlong has the highest base damage of any automatic conventional firearm, as well as the highest non-critical damage per second of all weapons affected by Small Guns. It also features a modified 36-round magazine, 12 rounds higher than all other assault rifles.


The Xuanlong assault rifle can fire a total of about 1,111 rounds, the equivalent of 31 reloads, from full condition before breaking, 101 fewer rounds than a regular Chinese assault rifle.

Behind the scenes

Chinese scholars have classified dragons in diverse systems. For instance, Huizong of Song canonized five colored dragons as "kings." Xuanlong (玄龍) is the black dragon.
