The L30 Gatling laser is an energy weapon in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

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

The H&K L30 Gatling laser[1], also referred to as the Sunbeam Gatling laser, [2] was designed specifically for military use. At the beginning of the war, these models were still in the prototype stage. They are powered by microfusion cells and the multiple barrels allow longer periods of firing before the weapon overheats.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The Gatling laser is a powerful weapon, but rapidly loses power as enemies with high laser resistances come into play. In order for it to truly shine, the player has to invest in perks increasing the critical rate, such as More Criticals or even better, Sniper. With high luck, the weapon will routinely bypass armor and deal lots and lots of damage to the enemy.
