Anyone looking to find out any info on this game should simply buy the game guide and read it. There is way too much incorrect info on many of these websites. I've played Fallout 3 since it first came out and have read the guide from cover to cover.

and there's a precision gatling laser as a unique weapon and there's the Slo Burn flamer... they're both worth selling if you can find someone with 1000 or more caps
