The CZ57 Avenger or Avenger minigun[1] is a unique weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from minigun. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Rockwell designed the 5mm CZ57[2] Avenger[3] as the replacement for their aging CZ53 personal minigun. The Avenger's design improvements include improved gel-fin cooling and chromium plated barrel-bores, giving it a greater range and lethality.[1] It also has an ammo capacity of 120x 5mm round like the earlier versions of the CZ53 model. Later models of CZ57 have a high-speed motor, a cage underneath to put the ammo box and used in combination with a backpack.

CharacteristicsEdit

The CZ57 Avenger minigun is a unique version of the regular minigun. In comparison it deals slightly more damage per shot than the regular counterpart. This is further augmented by a vastly greater rate of fire, giving it the highest damage-per-second of any weapon in Fallout: New Vegas. Additionally, the weapons spread is reduced to just over half of that of the normal minigun, giving it better accuracy over longer distances. However, the standard minigun holds twice as much ammunition in a belt than the CZ57 Avenger, giving the CZ57 Avenger only 4 seconds of continuous fire before needing to reload, but this does reduce the overall weight of the weapon from 25 pounds to 18 pounds. The name and model of the Avenger is also printed on the side of the ammunition pack.

Like most unique weapons, weapon modifications cannot be used on CZ57 Avenger. However, by default, it comes with the high-speed motor modification already added.

DurabilityEdit

The CZ57 Avenger can fire a total of about 7995 standard rounds, the equivalent of 67 reloads, from full condition before breaking. This is 2000 more rounds than the standard version.
