The Gamma Gun emits radiation that is deadly to humans, but ineffective against almost all Ghouls, robots and Wasteland creatures.

The gamma gun is a weapon in Fallout 4.

Background[edit | edit source]

Surrounded by deadly radioactive fallout out in the wasteland, it comes as no surprise that survivors harness nuclear radiation as a lethal weapon. This has resulted in the gamma gun, a hand held pistol that sends a pulse of high frequency gamma radiation to irradiate targets. The weapons is especially popular with the Children of Atom who use Atom's glow to decimate those before them.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The gamma gun is really only useful against humans without particularly protective armor, given that super mutants, ghouls, and a majority of mutated creatures are immune to radiation. Still, it can be made much more lethal to these specific enemies with its variety of modifications.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

With the Contraptions Workshop add-on, gamma guns can be manufactured using an energy weapon forge.

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Decayed reactor site: On the Child of Atom inside the reactor dome.
  • Commonly found on Children on Atom.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Hitting ghouls with the gamma gun will not damage them, but actually heal them. So it's ill advised to use the gamma gun on any ghoul.
