The victory rifle is a unique sniper rifle in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from Sniper rifle. To modify, please edit the source page.

This sniper rifle is an older model of the famed DKS-501, chambered for .308 ammunition. Apart from a frame tailored for sniping, it boasts a muzzle flash dampener, a monopod that doubles as a forward grip as well as a rubberized eyepiece and stock for extra comfort.[1] It's an extremely fragile precision rifle and requires regular repair and maintenance to keep it in working condition.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

While identical inpower to the sniper rifle, the Victory rifle is significantly more durable. It additionally knocks down targets when a critical hit is scored. However, this ability is hampered with a reduced critical chance of x3 rather than the sniper rifle's normal x5.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Location[edit | edit source]

The Victory rifle is inside a locked (very hard) locker in the Sniper Shack overlooking Rockbreaker's Last Gas from a hill to the west. Getting it will require a lockpick skill of 100. There is no key or trigger that will open the locker; however, Dogmeat can be told to find a weapon in the house and retrieve it from the locker for you. Star Paladin Cross will also pick it up to kill the Caged radroaches.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • There is a glitch where the rifle will not appear, requiring a reload from an earlier save.
