Victory Rifle

Gameplay article: Fallout 3

While identical in strength and appearance to the basic .308 Sniper Rifle, the Victory Rifle is a more durable version. The projectiles also possess extra force, and are capable of knocking a target down on some occasions.

Reservist's Rifle

Gameplay article: Fallout 3

Also identical to the basic variant in base strength, the Reservist's Rifle has an incredibly high critical hit chance and a substantially higher rate of fire, but only holds 3 rounds in a magazine.

Notes and references

  1. Apparently, the makers of Fallout Tactics were not aware of the fact that .308 is the same caliber as 7.62mm, just in inches. By .308, they probably mean 7.62 × 51 mm NATO (as the commercial version is widely known as .308 Winchester) and by 7.62mm, they probably meant 7.62x54mm or 7.62x39mm, the Russian equivalents
