      How can you tell that's a C7 receiver without seeing the Colt Canada stamp?

        C7 is a style, it has an A1 sight and a brass deflector
        it doesn't need to be made by or for Colt Canada, it just needs to be in that style

        C7 pattern not literally from a C7 rifle. Just like not how every A1 receiver is literally from an M16A1.

    Side charging means less sealed from dirt than an actual AR.
    Wooden furniture is more sensitive to environmental conditions like swelling in humidity, though I dont suppose plastic is a realistic alternative in a world without oil.
    Forward assist is totally redundant when you have a fixed charging handle right in front of it, people can complain and argue about the real forward assist but the service rifle one is actually objectively pointless.

        Made, anyway. The Gun Runners ones are refabs. Worth nothing that the US controlled the world's last oil reserves (all in US territory and Mexico). That's actually why the Great War kicked off. The Chinese tried to steal it, got raped, and tantrumed when they realized they were going to collapse of mass famine and total industrial failure within months.

        The US was only slightly better off by that point in time and would not have long survived to enjoy their 'victory.'

            I'm aware. But by the time the Chinese launched, they were canonically out of steam and on the verge of complete collapse. And the US was not far behind them by that point.

            The space program in Fallout (ignoring Bethesda writing) does not appear to have gotten much love as the timelines diverged. Theoretically there should be plenty of useful materials in the asteroid belt and on places like Titan.

              even ignoring bethesda, space was apparently much more conquered than it was in real life
              like a near-working space shuttle the hubologists have and are trying to repair

              van buren would have involved a functioning space station loaded with nuclear bombs and maintained by robots
              the main villain would have taken the last remaining rocket to get there while you are forced to fix up the second one to follow him up
              they arent casually travelling to the moon and back, but they sure do have a lot of satellites up there that are way more advanced than anything we have

                None of those accomplishments are out of reach of our current technology, they're just either not good (the shuttle gave way to far superior things like reusable rockets) or illegal (militarized space stations). The Fallout setting is pretty far beyond us and yet they trail in actual capability in orbit.

                Mid length is more reliable. Going rifle length works with 16inch, its just a bit more finnicky whereas mid length runs really well. But it would be a toy anyways so if it doesn't like some ammo its not the end of the world I guess.

            Wood is decently heavy, but not terribly more than regular a1/a2 furniture. It isn't that noticeable unless you are doing a lot of off hand shooting, but it's just enough to tame recoil down to .22lr levels. It's only a couple hundred bucks for the furniture set, and surplus GI furniture is still cheap, so you could always swap between the two. Wood for nuclear winter larps, plastic for 'Nam larps.

                "dissipator" was never applicable to rifle length gas on an ~15" barrel, it always meant mid/carbine (not sure which) length low profile gas block underneath a rifle handguard
                the issues are mostly mitigated by going to a 16" barrel but it's not historical but also who cares

    5.56 is fine for random raiders and Legion pricks, but I can tell you from experience that it just pisses the bigger muties off. There ain't too many supermurants left, but when you're on the frontier you're gonna have to worry about other shit, like the fricking deathclaws.

    Little tip from someone who knows: load hollow points for cazadors. They're fast and that venom will kill you before you realize you've been stung, but they're pretty fragile. My platoon also bought a bunch of mongrel dogs and trained them to sic. Felt bad doing it but the bugs are so stupid they'll go for whatever is closest. And a dead dog is less of a problem than telling someone's mom a giant pissed off wasp killed junior because she wanted to lay eggs in his chest.

      >kill you
      They DON'T kill you. Cazadore venom IS very potent but they don't kill you. A Cazadore's venom paralyzes you and they drag you back to their hives. There you'll be kept alive, even fed with nectar or water while the egg the queen laid on you hatches. As you are paralyzed you can't do anything as the Cazadore larva eats you, we've found that their saliva is a antibiotic and a coagulate so infection or blood loss won't kill you, as it feeds and gets bigger. Eventually it will start to eat vital organs, but this takes days.

              IIRC the devs wanted it to be .50 beo but didn't think a single gun warranted a whole new ammo type, so they chose the closest thing on the current roster and rolled with it.

              The SMG is reasonable, it's got a fat top P90 magazine that can feasibly fit 50 beo. The 12.7 pistol almost looks like the magazine was supposed to be in front of the grip, which would then fit .50 Beo, bu I reckon they wanted to reuse the animation

              the service rifle has a flip up dust cover that wouldn't be able to be folded down because the bolt handle gets in the way, takedown pins, trigger pins in the wrong location, a pin for a mag release as well, and the "charging handle" would prevent the bolt from cycling all the way to the rear.

              it using 12.7x42mm, which is the generic name for the trademarked .50 beowulf, is the least of the guns problems.

              btw, with H&R producing the LSW in the future, proper sized front sight posts will be available again making it possible to build clones of them without having to search for the 15 year discontinued (and improperly made) DPMS front sight post.
              unfortunately the NCR and survivalist rifle are beloved by redditors and trannies now, so you'll never be able to enjoy your gun without a fat balding manchild coming up to you at the range to ask about it and then go on about how much he loves the NCR mod for fallout 4.

                Is this your rifle? Is it mid length or rifle length?

                I really wanted to do a dissipator but I’ve settled on near-cloning a colt lightweight sporter from the early 90s with the rifle stock using h&r parts although I may put a NV service rifle lower on it for the meme

                Who makes an NCR marked lower?

                Isn't it still a mystery on who launched first? Or did 76 change that?

                I'm aware. But by the time the Chinese launched, they were canonically out of steam and on the verge of complete collapse. And the US was not far behind them by that point.

                The space program in Fallout (ignoring Bethesda writing) does not appear to have gotten much love as the timelines diverged. Theoretically there should be plenty of useful materials in the asteroid belt and on places like Titan.

                Still, holding one continuous front from Anchorage to Vietnam and fending off a Gobi offensive is still a very impressive feet while having a better infiltration/stealth tech and an entire fleet of ghost submarines too.

                its always been implied to be the chinese even if its never been outright confirmed

                tim caine has gone on the record saying that as far as he knows, the chinese were intended to be the ones to fire first, though he hasnt worked on the game since 2 so he isnt the definitive answer
                most people do agree that whoever launched the first missile isnt particularly important and its better for the overall theme of the game if we never trully, 100% find out

                Officially, it's a mystery. Practically speaking, if you pay attention to the narrative, it's blindingly obvious that the Chinese launched. Tim Caine (the father of Fallout) has backed this idea. Other games/entries which are not canon have variously given the answer of Vault-Tec (so, by proxy, the Enclave deep state) and space aliens. Neither are very likely. Aliens have always been nothing but a joke in Fallout, a nod to aesthetics, and the Enclave was apparently caught by surprise by the launch, they aren't supposed to be in the condition they're in in Fallout 2.

                It's unlikely an official, concrete answer will be given because it's besides the point. The actual nuclear exchange was just a punctuation at the end of a total collapse which had already happened or was happening before the eyes of the states still holding together.

                This isn't really relevant to the conversation on 'who shot first,' but there's a slight implication in Fallout 1 that the US and Soviet Union have a detente and are, if not necessarily allies, then on civil terms. This can be seen in the fact that civilian export firearms from the Soviet Union are found in the wasteland, and one of the 'default' Vault Dwellers is the daughter of a Soviet political official who had been given access to a Vault for him and his family. This could not be expected to happen if they were on bad terms, remember that this is a setting where the propaganda reels for the home front include footage of American soldiers summarily killing Canadian partisans, laughing about it, and cheerfully waving for the camera.

    Aside from the obvious aesthetic problems of the in-game model, I always thought 5.56 way a weird choice over 7.62x51. A frontier army in an apocalyptic wasteland is going to spend a lot of time defending against or exterminating mutated creatures, ideally over long distances, and .308 is much more suited to the task. And meanwhile, it'll put down Roman LARPers even more authoritatively. Being able to carry less ammo would be a problem, but given that the Fallout world is filled with things that are A) aggressive and B) able to withstand multiple .556 rounds with ease, I think it's worth it.

      Fair enough.
      223 rifles were quite good in FO1 and 2 besides that.

      In fnv 556 weapons take comparativrly, little skill to use effectively, less materiel to manifacture, and is sufficient for caravan protection against basic b***h raiders , provides a high volume of fire and comes in AP and hp variants capable of at least threatening more resiliant(or squishy foes). Lmg is also a weapon issued on occasion. And 556 is not the only gun used by regular troopers

      More Sarious units like NCR and desert rangers as well as first recon use 308, 45/70, 50 bmg. Not exclusively. Basic idea i think is.
      Troopers protect caravans and hold the line.
      Specialist units plug holes (like heavy troopers or 50cal snipers) in ability or do decisive actions with extra firepower and better gear.

    The Battle of Hoover Dam is really schizo from both a gameplay and like actual military perspective. The NCR has every possible advantage: ubiquitous use of semi-automatic rifles, air power, shock troops in power armor, a prepared defensive position, etc. Even trying to do a legion run makes it obvious how much better the NCR is militarily than the legion, even at level cap, 15-20 NCR troopers with their standard issue rifles will just pepper you with fire, cripple you, and you die of attrition, couple that with the Legion's relative lack of firearms, reliance on a single howitzer for artillery support (which they can't repair themselves), complete inability to retaliate against air power, and lack of any serious protective equipment makes it pretty obviously an NCR stomp.

        In my experience even in in-game battles the scale has to be relatively low. Hoover Dam in NCR playthroughs is unbelievably easy because of the NCR's sheer volume of fire, it's a slog for the Legion, at least in my experience.

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      The legion is an insurgent force, they only really do charges against people they think will fold. Basically the only time we see them fight conventionally is the dam, and even then they blow their way into the sub levels to flank the defenders and have every errant faction in the Mojave perform behind-lines terror attacks to split the NCR force between the dam and strip. Every other encounter is an ambush or sabotage. The problem at the end of the day is an engine/game scale thing, the dam was occupied by ~5k legionnaires but you only see like 50-70 at the battle. Similarly, there are supposed to be 30k NCR in the region and that seems really dense but their forward base overlooking nelson is 20 miles from the battle, rather than just over the hill from the dam like ingame. They're spread thin and their supplies and patrols keep vanishing.
      >air power
      Without the couriers intervention, the NCR doesn't have air power. Bear force one is a one-off trophy vehicle, if they had enough to use as CAS theyd have used it in the battle.
      >shock troops in power armor
      Just heavy armor, the servos have been stripped out. The legion reuses captured power armor on the centurions too.

      Prior to encountering the NCR, almost all of the Legion's enemies were primitive tribals and poorly organized raiders. The NCR was the first serious opponent that Caesar's Legion fought, hence why they lost the First Battle of Hoover Dam.

    Well the two big ones are that it is used by the NCR and that it is chambered in 5.56 mm rather than the objectively superior 12.7 mm. God, I would kill to own a wood furniture AR in .50 beowulf.
    I honestly think that the NCR adopting a 5.56 AR was a real mistake that does not make much sense in universe. The Fallout setting is one where body armor is basically universal and until recently the main military threat to the Republic has been the heavily armored infantry of the Brotherhood. Given this and the sorts of pre-war weapons that would have been available, I personally think they should have adopted the M14. I imagine that a Republic infantry platoon armed with M14s and a few M60s (perhaps even the odd M67) would probably make pretty short work of just about any equivalent sized unit from the Brotherhood or the Legion.
