Our Fallout New Vegas Unique Weapons Locations Guide shows the total of 42 unique weapons to be found in the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 game.

These Unique Weapons have better stats than those of the regular versions of these weapons, if there is one, that you would find in the game. For example, the 9mm Pistol: Maria that you get from killing Benny has better stats than the regular 9mm.

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • You may come across these weapons throughout the game on your own, or you may have to explore and walk some to find other ones. Some of these weapons can be bought, for example “That Gun” Location #11 can be bought or stolen at Dino Bite Shop. It is your choice to buy it, if you have enough caps or to steal it if you feel as if you want that weapon or to steal it to sell it.

    There is no specific order to these unique weapons, I have gone ahead and ordered them first by the type of weapon and then ranked by how powerful they by default to least in each category. Do not assume that since the weapon is on top, that it would be better for your character or for you to use throughout the entire game and/or every enemy. All of these depend on your type of character and skills.

    Unique Guns

    Unique Weapon Location #1: Sawed-Off Shotgun: Big Boomer

    Location: Gibson Scrap Yard

    You can only get this weapon by killing Old Lady Gibson. If you decide to kill her, your karma will decrease. It is up to you to decide if you feel as if this shotgun is worth it with its stats.

    Also be warned that if you decide to kill her, you may want to complete the Side Quest called “Nothin’ But A Hound Dog” if you plan on wanting the attack damage versus either increased speed or increased toughness then you will need to keep Old Lady Gibson alive till afterwards.

    You cannot get it by sneaking and pickpocketing it from her, or any other way.

    Unique Weapon Location #2: Hunting Shotgun: Dinner Bell

    Location: The Thorn, in the sewers in front of Westside

    Do not be mistaken that this weapon is at the “Old Nuclear Test Site” because it is not. The weapon located there is just a regular Hunting Shotgun and not the unique shotgun here called the Dinner Bell.

    You will need to talk to Red Lucy inside of The Thorn which is located right in front of the entrance to Westside. She will give you a Side Quest called “Bleed Me Dry” which will be quite a long quest.

    You will need to collect all of the following to complete this quest for Red Lucy: Radscorpion Eggs, Fire Gecko Eggs, Night Stalker Eggs, Cazador Eggs and finally Deathclaw Eggs.

    When you finished collecting them all, after giving her the Deathclaw Eggs you will receive this unique weapon “Dinner Bell” from her.

    Unique Weapon Location #3: This Machine

    Location: Camp McCarran

    This weapon is a reward by the Contreras if you do not turn him in. It will be at the end of the free quest titled “Dealing with Contreras.”

    Unique Weapon Location #4: Sniper Rifle: Gobi Campaign Scout Rifle

    Location: Sniper’s Nest

    This weapon will be inside of a footlocker in the Sniper’s Nest that overlooks the Cottonwood Cove. It is nearly all the way up the hill.

    Unique Weapon Location #5: .44 Magnum Revolver: Mysterious Magnum

    Location: Sunset Sarsaparilla Billboard; North of El Dorado Gas & Service

    If you decide to kill him, you should know that if you do you will fail the Side Quest “Talent Pool.” Talent Pool is also an achievement worth 20 Gamerscore or a Bronze Trophy. To start the “Talent Pool” Side Quest talk to Tommy Torini at the Tops Casino and go from there.

    Once you are done with the Side Quest you can kill him, or before if it does not matter to you or if you already have the achievement or trophy. You will not be able to pickpocket him to get the weapon. He will give you his gun at the end of the Side Quest.

    However; one final way you can get his weapon without doing the side quest or killing him would be to shoot the gun out of his hand which can be done by carefully shooting him so he draws his weapon.

    Unique Weapon Location #6: Cowboy Repeater: La Longue Carabine

    Location: Camp McCarran

    You will need to kill Corporal Sterling in order to acquire this sniper rifle from him.

    If you choose to kill him, NCR infamy will be gained. If you do not wish to be shunned from the NCR then you cannot kill him which is the only way you can get his weapon as it cannot be pickpocketed.

    Unique Weapon Location #7: .357 Magnum Revoler: Lucky

    Location: Primm at The Bison Steve Hotel

    You will need a lockpick skill of 75 in order to get in this vault. The vault is located in the floor behind the cash register of the Gift Shop.

    If you do not have a lockpick skill of 75 you will need to either rank up until you do or find and use the skill magazine called Locksmith’s Reader that temporary gives you +20 to your lockpick skill. You would still need at least a lockpick skill of 55 though if you had only 1. There are 12 of these.

    You could also search for Skill Books which permanently increase these skills. Find the 4 locations to Thumbers Today Skill Books to increase your skill by +3 (or +4 with the Comprehension Perk) each time you find and use the book.

    Unique Weapon Location #8: Marksman Carbine: All-American

    Location: Vault 34

    This weapon will be on the floor on an turned table inside of the Armory Cache in Vault 34.

    Unique Weapon Location #9: Varmint Rifle: Ratslayer

    Location: Broc Flower Cave

    This weapon will be against a desk inside of the Broc Flower Cave.

    Unique Weapon Location #10: 9mm Pistol: Maria

    Location: The Tops Casino

    This weapon can only be acquired if you kill Benny. Once you have, take it off his body.

    Unique Weapon Location #11: That Gun

    Location: Novac at the Dino Bite Gift Shop.

    You can either buy this weapon here, or pick the lock to the storage room and steal it from there.

    Unique Weapon Location #12: Minigun: CZ57 Avenger

    Location: The Devil’s Throat

    This weapon will be inside The Devil’s Throat at the back of the container trailer by a dead body.

    Unique Weapon Location #13: 9mm Submachine Gun: Vance’s Submachine Gun

    Location: Wins Hideout

    You will find Vance’s 9mm Submachine Gun inside of his safe in his shack. His shack is to the northwest of the Vegas Strip North Gate, North of Vegas and right down the street from H&H Tools Factory.

    You will need a lockpick skill of 100 in order to be able to open the safe. You can use either a skill book to increase your lockpick skill by 3 for each of the 4 in the game or you can find skill magazines which will temporary increase your skill by 20 for each magazine to be able to open it.

    Unique Weapon Location #14: BB Gun: Abilene Kid LE BB Gun

    Location: Field’s Shack

    This weapon will be found lying on a shelf inside of Field’s Shack which is near Nellis Air Force Base.

      There is a large truck in the crater, all the way down. Go inside and all the way to the back to find it laying there. Another note, be sure you are not in devils gullet.
      Devils throat is in the top right of the map.

    • i have seen buster there before but now hes not there do you have any ideas were he might be.

    • zander

      Speaking of dahtri I have daone three card bounty before, but now I’m playing again and I can’t find him, I know he is usually as soon as u enter mcarren, but now I can’t find him. Any suggestions?

    • At one point I had 55+ orbital strikes(as I refer to the ammo for C-finder). But now when I fire the gun, it doesn’t exactly work well. XDD It either won’t fire, or I end up getting hit directly with it instead of my target :} ….I like fire…

    • you dont have to kill dead sea to get his machete if you talk to him and ask why he has not advanced and took over the NCR base near his location he says why dont you go and take it over then and if you do when you tell him you killed the three people he wanted dead he says you cane have my machete and he tells you how he got it


      today is july 29th 2013 , ive played around 15 playthroughs of F.N.V, i have your site bookmarked and use it every play through. i see that all the post are old and i guess i’m the only die hard..cant wait fallout 4.

      how do you get more ammo for the alien blaster

    • Grog

      just kill the boomer farmer -the one thats got the fatman, hes a regular boomer -one that pops back after a while, if your running low on mini nukes its a good way to get more. I got 3 from him. Best to kill him in sneak with silenced sniper like I do at the dam, those guys love me and I kill them all in sneak. Then sometime later they just all come back so you can do it all over again.
