Pipe rifle is a weapon in Fallout 76.

Background[edit | edit source]

A crude, makeshift weapon manufactured by less than talented smiths after the Great War.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The pipe rifle is a very flexible weapon, despite its crude appearance. Makeshift semi-automatic pistols have a plethora of modifications available and can be extensively customized to suit an individual play style, from a close quarters combat weapon to a crude sniper rifle; however, in order to create a pipe rifle, one must craft a stock for the pipe pistol.

Pipe rifles can make for a decent early assault rifle once the player accumulates a good supply of .38 ammo. The standard magazine holds 12 rounds, the large magazine doubles that, and the drum doubles it again to 48. Mods that reduce recoil are best for automatic fire.

The .38 receiver can be adapted to fire .45 ammunition; this may be advantageous in comparison with the .45 pipe revolver. This modification is unfortunately in place of other receiver modifications, rather than in addition to. Thus, it doesn't allow for a .45 auto, and unlike the revolver, the damage per shot cannot be improved.
