The FN FAL HPFA (High Power Full Automatic) is a small gun in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

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

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).[1]

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.[1] It uses 7.62mm ammunition with a 20-round magazine.[2] During the Cold War, it was adopted by many NATO countries[1] 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.[3]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

A special version of the FN FAL. It looks exactly like a standard FAL, except the burst fire uses an entire magazine, and it does slightly more damage. You cannot upgrade this weapon.
