The Rockwell CZ53 personal minigun is a big gun in Fallout.
A Rockwell CZ53 personal minigun is capable of firing 5mm rounds at over 60,000 RPM with an ammunition capacity dependent on the type of feed mechanism. (120 round unknown, 200 round belt-fed drum, and 240 box – with accompanying extra belt backpack) The CZ53 personal minigun makes up for the small 5mm round by sending a hail of bullets toward its target. Its sheer size, coupled with its trademark sound, is enough to send anyone in its path running for cover. It's a great weapon for suppressing fire, letting others flank the unsuspecting enemy. When the Great War struck, it was already an aging design and was slowly being replaced by the more advanced CZ57 Avenger minigun. The minigun was the favorite weapon of the Mariposa super mutant during the Unity's time, and allowed many of the super mutants to wield them effectively with only one arm.
The mainstay of the Big Guns skill, effectively the assault rifle of the class. The Minigun fires 40 bullets per burst, effectively being a three shot weapon. However, given that damage is calculated per bullet, this makes it potentially insanely powerful. That same feature can also consign it to near-uselessness, however, as armor protection is also calculated per bullet, meaning that a high DT can make even a full size Minigun burst deal next to no damage.
