Background[edit | edit source]

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

The Type 93 Chinese assault rifle[1] was designed and manufactured by a Chinese industrial conglomerate for the People's Liberation Army during the Resource Wars, for the purpose of equipping the Chinese infiltrators and American fifth-columnists. To this end, it was chambered for the abundant 5.56mm round and utilizes a 24-round magazine. Thousands of these weapons were smuggled into the US for use by Chinese operatives and sympathizers on the East Coast, and many remain functional even two hundred years after the Great War. These rifles are also proven to be ready for manufacturing in post-War conditions.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

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 small guns. It also features a modified 36-round magazine, 12 rounds higher than all other assault rifles.

Durability[edit | edit source]

The Xuanlong assault rifle can fire a total of about 1111 rounds, the equivalent of 31 reloads, from full condition before breaking, 101 fewer rounds than a regular Chinese assault rifle.

Jiggs' Loot - once one completes all the puzzles in the Museum of Technology, the Xuanlong assault rifle spawns on the body of Prime. One must complete this quest in order for Prime, and thus the gun as well, to spawn.

The Xuanlong assault rifle cannot be given to Pronto for the unmarked quest Economics of Violence.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

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.
