My top 10 favorite Fallout 3 weapons (Including DLC, Excluding mods) are the following…
- The Rock-It Launcher [Renamed as the “Junk Jet” in Fallout 4.] It’s just a really fun and hilarious weapon, dismembering someone with a Nuka-Cola Truck or a Teddy bear always brightens up my humor.
- Railway Rifle
I love the sounds of this gun, the looks of this gun, and the damage of this gun. Being able to impale decapitated heads onto walls and objects is a nice feature too.
- Microwave Emitter
I just find it to be incredibly Over-Powered and is one of my first choice of weapons to pick if I want to quickly clear an area, grind enemies for XP, or just want to burn my enemies.
- Victory Rifle
Just my personal choice of a long ranged weapon to allow me to quickly kill enemies from afar.
- Xuanlong Assault Rifle
The most powerful assault rifle in the vanilla game, I always keep one in my inventory to get me out of sticky situations where no-other weapon would do the job quite as effectively as the Chinese Assault Rifle.
Because I like miniguns.
- Experimental MIRV
Because why the f*ck not?!!
- A3-21’s Plasma Rifle
Nothing special, It’s just another type of Plasma weapon I like to use.
- Gauss Rifle
Similar to the Sniper Rifle, except much more bigger, and powerful. But the lack of FOV it gives me makes it an un-appealing weapon for me.
Just a small .44 that lays around in my inventory, only used when the other weapons are low on condition or low on ammo.
