The Break is found on a pool table in the center of
Paradise Falls next to the roasting brahmin near the entrance to Eulogy's Pad.
The weapon is not owned by any character and thus picking it up will not count as stealing.
The Break may be picked up by Rory MacLaren or any of the other slaves in Paradise Falls if they are set free, as it is usually the first available weapon upon exiting the slave pen area. The slavers themselves may also pick up the weapon if disarmed in combat or if they do not have ammunition for their weapons. As a result, you may find it in the possession of one of these characters if there has been any fighting in Paradise Falls.
