The railway rifle is a weapon in Fallout 4.

CharacteristicsEdit

Returning from Fallout 3, the railway rifle fires railway spikes as projectiles in the same manner as a crossbow or a flechette gun. These are rarely found as ammunition, but are cheap to buy and may be recovered from enemies slain using the weapon. In exchange, the railway rifle has become enormously more powerful from its last iteration while retaining its ability to do extreme damage to limbs--sometimes even pinning detached ones to walls.

The railway rifle is most effective in VATS at close to mid ranges, although its range is somewhat increased from its last incarnation and can be greatly increased with modification. The reason that the rifle is more effective in VATS is that the nails seems to have a slight traveltime which makes it harder to hit enemies further away. This travel time reduces the efficacy of the railway rifle as a sniper weapon. However, a scoped railway rifle can still be a devastating sniper weapon for use against unaware enemies because of its massive damage and the fact that it is almost completely silent.

In addition, a train whistle can be heard when reloading the weapon.

VariantsEdit

LocationsEdit

  • Big John's salvage - inside Big John's fallout shelter, which is in a blue overturned railway car just behind his house. In order to enter the shelter's trapdoor, the power must be switched on. The power switch is near the automobile-powered main gate to the salvage yard, attached to a power cable that runs to the blue railway car. After hitting the switch, access the trapdoor by jumping on top of the car.
  • Potential reward for completing the quest Underground Undercover.
  • Bedford Station - Inside a blue railway car attached to a Locomotive. Appears at Level 20.
  • Carried by Desdemona during the quest Tactical Thinking.
  • Carried by Tinker Tom during the quest End of the Line.

NotesEdit

  • Railway rifles only spawn when the Sole Survivor is above level 20.
  • The Railway Rifle was brought back from Fallout 3, and shares a similar appearance to the original.
  • The limb-pinning effect affects heads. Also the pinning does not always happen in outdoor areas. In V.A.T.S. the camera will follow the flying limb or head for quite a ways before giving up.
  • Very often there are spikes stuck in walls and bodies after a fight. These spikes are irretrievable.
