The pipe bolt-action is a weapon in Fallout 4.

CharacteristicsEdit

The pipe bolt-action weapon frame may not perform as well as other high-caliber options, but it's remarkably versatile and easily acquired. Like other makeshift firearms, pipe bolt-action weapons are commonly carried by settlers and low-level enemies, such as raiders, in early parts of the game.

While the basic Pipe gun is a jack-of-all-trades that shines in fully automatic versions tailored for close quarters combat, the bolt-action variant puts emphasis on hard-hitting precision at medium to long range. It therefore serves as the low-tech equivalent to the hunting rifle when equipped with a full stock. Otherwise it handles like a middle ground between a regular pipe pistol and a Pipe revolver.

Upgrading pipe bolt-action guns with a .50 receiver allows them to retain their usefulness into the early mid-game stages. However, once the more powerful contenders like hunting rifles or even Gauss rifles become available and the player has invested enough points in the Gun Nut and Science! perks to maximize these weapons' potential, pipe bolt-action weapons become largely obsolete.

VariantsEdit

  • Pipe bolt-action pistol
  • Pipe bolt-action rifle

LocationsEdit

  • A pipe bolt-action sniper rifle may be found next to a dead raider in an upstairs room of a house along the road north of the Museum of Freedom in Concord.
  • Trudy at the Drumlin Diner sells a suppressed bolt-action pipe gun. Other mods on the suppressed bolt-action gun that Trudy sells are random, but she will always start the game with at least one suppressed gun. This is very advantageous as a mid level mod is available at level one for stealth players.
