The recharger rifle is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


The recharger rifle is the first version[1] of a self-charging weapon with effectively limitless ammunition. As the first version of such a weapon, it suffers from a limited power capacity and low effectiveness of the built-in microfusion breeder. The microfusion breeder recharges at about one round every second, meaning a fully discharged rifle takes 7 seconds to recharge. Its evolved and far more advanced counterpart is the recharger pistol.


It recharges itself at about a round every second, requiring the player to pace their shots to compensate.


The recharger rifle can fire approximately 370 times from full condition before breaking.



  • Despite its low damage, the gun can be fired very rapidly outside of V.A.T.S.
  • While much heavier and noticeably weaker per shot than the laser rifle, it doesn't require any ammunition to be carried. Because of this, it can be one option for consideration in hardcore mode.
  • With the Perk Jury Rigging, this weapon becomes more useful as spare parts, due to its low cost.
