This gun unloads a fast blast of bullets, but is not especially accurate. It's better when used in close range, as it can keep several enemies busy at the same time.

— In-game description

The .44 heavy machine gun is classified as a Big Gun in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, and can be found and obtained by the Initiate and party.


An excellent weapon throughout the entire game, with ammunition becoming consistently common in Chapter 2 and 3, the heavy machine gun easily mows down moderate to even high-level threats.
