This was an experimental weapon at the time of the war. Manufactured, primarily, from high-strength polymers, the weapon is almost indestructible. It's light, fast firing, accurate, and can be broken down without the use of any tools.

The XL70E3 is a small gun in Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The only thing really special about this gun is its superior damage per shot when compared to the AK-112 assault rifle. Its range and capacity are inferior.

By the time it can be acquired, the XL70E3 will be going up against advanced power armor. As such, it won't be used much. Against the leather jackets that the Vagrants wear, however, the 5mm lead will fare much better.

Location[edit | edit source]

  • This weapon can be rather difficult to get. One of the black haired female Vagrants on the Tanker in San Francisco has it, but you need to kill her for it (you cannot steal it from her). Also, sometimes merchants you meet outside of San Francisco may have this weapon for sale.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In our reality, the XL70 was a prototype of the British SA80 family of weapons. It was the first of the prototypes to use 5.56 ammunition (the XL64/5s using an experimental British 4.85x49mm round).
