His actual rifle? Such a priceless artifact!

Hannibal Hamlin, Fallout 3

Lincoln's repeater is a weapon in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

This particular gold mounted, engraved Henry rifle was presented to Abraham Lincoln in an effort to obtain his influence in their purchase for the war effort.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Lincoln's repeater expanded

Lincoln's repeater is a very high-powered lever-action rifle, dealing 25 more damage than the hunting rifle, and 10 more damage than the sniper rifle. It lacks a scope, but remains accurate at long range by ignoring the bugged scope auto-aim. It also has 3 times the ammunition capacity of either of the other two rifles, but can't fire as fast as the sniper rifle. Lincoln's repeater can fire exactly 400 .44 rounds before becoming unusable. It can be repaired with the hunting rifle.

Variants[edit | edit source]

  • Lever-action rifle Point LookoutGametitle-FO3 PL.png, a common variant found throughout the swamps of Point Lookout.
  • Backwater rifle Point LookoutGametitle-FO3 PL.png, a more powerful unique variant of the lever-action rifle.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • This weapon is based on the Henry Rifle. The specific example referenced in the game, with its engraved gold mounting and serial number 6, was given to President Lincoln by the New Haven Arms Company in hopes that it would influence the purchase of the rifles for use in the Civil War. The actual Henry Rifle, with Lincoln's initials carved into the gold plate, is suspended in a glass case along with a telegraph machine in the Smithsonian.
  • The ammo box (pictured below) cut from the game states that the ammo is centerfire, but the .44 Henry was a rimfire cartridge.
