XL70E3 is a small gun in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

An experimental pre-War weapon produced from high strength polymers and almost indestructible as a result. It's lightweight, accurate, and has a high rate of fire, while maintenance is made easier by the fact that it can be stripped without any tools.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

A curiosity, rather than a practical weapon, the XL70E3 has higher damage as compared to the regular assault rifle, but offers a shorter range and smaller capacity (especially if the rifle is upgraded). Its mostly a collectible, as at this point the player will be routinely facing enemies in power armor, with high resistance to normal damage (which makes conventional automatic weapons problematic to use).

Location[edit | edit source]

  • San Francisco: Carried by the a tanker vagrant wearing a black jacket and black hair, to the southwest of the main PMV Valdez area. Since she has the rifle equipped, the only way to obtain it is to kill her.
    • San Fran shopkeepers may stock the rifle from time to time.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • XL70 was the forerunner of the SA80 assault rifle family (used in service as the L85). It was distinguished by its use of 5.56mm NATO ammunition, the first of its kind, as the preceding XL64 and XL65 used an experimental British 4.85x49mm bullet.
