Ashmaker is a unique heavy weapon in Fallout 4.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from Minigun. To modify, please edit the source page.

A Rockwell CZ53 personal minigun is capable of firing 5mm rounds at over 60,000 RPM[1] with an ammunition capacity dependent on the type of feed mechanism. (120 round unknown[2], 200 round belt-fed drum[3], and 240 box – with accompanying extra belt backpack[4]) The CZ53 personal minigun makes up for the small 5mm round by sending a hail of bullets toward its target. Its sheer size, coupled with its trademark sound, is enough to send anyone in its path running for cover. It's a great weapon for suppressing fire, letting others flank the unsuspecting enemy.[5][6] When the Great War struck, it was already an aging design and was slowly being replaced by the more advanced CZ57 Avenger minigun.[7]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Ashmaker is a unique minigun in the possession of John Hancock's personal bodyguard, Fahrenheit. As both its own and its owner's name would suggest, it always has the 'Incendiary' effect: "Sets targets on fire for 15 points of damage." Each individual bullet conveys the additional 15 damage, which causes damage to add up very quickly with its rapid rate-of-fire.

  • Quest reward for The Big Dig, if you side with Farenheit. This is also available if you side with the dig crew. If you have a curved ripper, or the Hooked attachment for the pipe wrench, or any other disarming method, you can disarm Farenheit, and the Ashmaker drops.
