This submachine gun filled National Guard arsenals after the Army replaced it with newer weapons. However, the "Grease Gun" was simple and cheap to manufacture so there are still quite a few still in use.

— Fallout 2 In-game description

The M3A1 "grease gun" SMG is a small gun in Fallout 2.

BackgroundEdit

Main article: Submachine gun
This submachine gun filled National Guard arsenals after the Army replaced it with newer weapons. However, the "Grease" gun was simple and cheap to manufacture so there are still quite a few still in use. It's very powerful, but its .45 rounds lack the bonuses of 10mm rounds.

CharacteristicsEdit

This SMG is decently fast, costing 1 AP less to fire than most other SMGs. However, it is limited by heavy ammunition, weighing 1 pound for every 10 shots. This makes the weapon rather cumbersome to carry, especially for low Strength characters.

LocationsEdit

Female raiders between Broken Hills and Vault City carry this weapon, although they no longer spawn once the Chosen One eliminates the Raider threat. Big Jesus Mordino also gives the player character one when they kill Louis Salvatore.

They are occasionally sold at the New Reno Arms.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Grease Gun is based on its real life counterpart, the M3 submachine gun, which entered service in the U.S. Army on December 12, 1942. Designed as a cost-effective substitute for the .45 caliber Thompson submachine gun, it was nicknamed the "Grease Gun" due to its similarity in appearance to the mechanic's tool of the same name.
