MEC Gauss minigun
|damage||60 - 80|
|ammo type||2mm EC|
The MEC Gauss minigun is a big gun in Fallout Tactics.
A Chinese squad support weapon, the MEC Gauss minigun uses three rotating electromagnetic accelerator assemblies to fire 2mm rounds at relativistic velocities. The extremely efficient design and low heat generation result in a staggering fire rate: 90,000 rounds per minute or 1,500 per second.
The Gauss minigun is easily the most destructive weapon in the game, with good range and insane damage (triple that of the Browning M2). Nothing comes close to its damage output. Its only drawback is the limited supply of 2mm EC ammo, which has to be bought from the quartermaster or very carefully scrounged and managed to prevent depriving sharpshooters of ammo.
