The FN FAL is a small gun in Fallout 2.
The Fusil Automatique Léger ("Light Automatic Rifle" or FAL, nicknamed "The right arm of the Free World") is a self-loading, selective fire battle rifle with wooden furniture created in 1947 by the Fabrique Nationale de Herstal (FN).
It operates by means of a gas-operated action. The gas system is driven by a short-stroke, spring-loaded piston housed above the barrel, and the locking mechanism is what is known as a tilting breechblock. It uses 7.62mm ammunition with a 20-round magazine. During the Cold War, it was adopted by many NATO countries and it has been more widely used by armed forces than any other rifle in history. It's a reliable assault weapon for any terrain or tactical situation.
The FAL is a top-notch assault rifle. Although it lacks the range of the AK-112, a burst from the FAL will actually deal damage, unlike AK AP ammunition without an AP fix patch, or AK JHP ammunition with a fix patch, which both won't. The 7.62mm rounds it uses are pretty rare, though, so burst at your own discretion.
- Certain non-player characters can add a thermal imager, resulting in a marginally superior weapon. The thermal image eliminates the accuracy penalties incurred due to darkness.
