The hunting rifle is a weapon in Fallout 4.

CharacteristicsEdit

The hunting rifle is a left-handed bolt-action rifle commonly carried by super mutants and raiders. It can be found early in the game although these early rifles will be unmodded. Its effectiveness in the early game sections can be limited by the amount of .308 ammunition the Sole Survivor can find. The hunting rifle is a viable weapon during the early to mid stages of the game, and can remain somewhat viable in later stages of the game as well via the use of modifications, especially when modified to fire .50 caliber ammunition, and finding a legendary variant.

From a general point of view, the hunting rifle is the game's mid-tier long-range precision weapon, reflected in its crafting perk requirements, with the hunting rifle's top-tier modifications requiring three points in Gun Nut.

The appearance of a basic, unmodified hunting rifle boasts short barrel and a wooden stock that has apparently been sawn into a pistol grip and wrapped with a layer of duct tape at some point in the past. However, outfitting the gun with increasingly more advanced barrels and ergonomic stocks made from what seems to be polymers quickly turns it into a high-tech sniper rifle. Once a good scope and a suppressor have been installed, along with a Marksman's stock, the weapon loses almost any resemblance to an actual hunting rifle and appears more fit to be wielded by a professional sniper instead.

VariantsEdit

LocationsEdit

  • Raiders, gunners and super mutants sometimes carry the weapon or one of its many variants.
  • Can occasionally be encountered rigged into gun traps.
  • A hunting rifle may be found at Walden Pond, in the sewer on top of a duffle bag. This is the closest guaranteed hunting rifle spawn to Sanctuary Hills.
  • A hunting rifle variant is on top of a kiosk at College Square.
  • A hardened hunting rifle with a full stock, long barrel and medium scope can be found on the roof of a red rocket station just northeast of College Square. Stairs are located at the rear of the building.
  • One may be found in Kendall Hospital, after taking the elevator up to the sixth floor it will be on a shelf in the room to the left of the machinegun turret.
  • One can be found at the Mass Pike Tunnel, entrance from the Boston Police rationing site as you pass the generator room and the corridor with a single mole rat, turn left at the locked door with a terminal into a small room with a military skeleton.

NotesEdit

  • There is no bipod modification, although one of the loading screens shows said bipod. A bipod modification was cut from the final release, but is still available from console commands.
