Each weapon type in Fallout 3 has a unique weapon with special capabilities. Here is a list of where you can find these unique weapons:
Find the crashed alien ship near top right hand corner of map. The ship is on top of the cliffs. Below are 3 aliens. Kill the captain for the blaster and ammo — like Fallout 3 it is one of the best guns in the game.
All American is a unique Marksman Carbine. You can find it at the armory in Vault 34. First, find the passwords from the drowned techies underwater — it helps if you have the rebreather. Find the terminal that holds one of the passwords, that will unlock a door. That leads to another room with another drowned techie. Take that password to security sector A and there is another terminal that will control the pump to drain the water. This will give you access to another room that you couldn’t reach before. Using the new found password, you will unlock the Overseer door and with that terminal. You unlock the armory door that holds All American and a crap ton of other loot. Beware of ALOT of feral ghouls. All American is found on a turned over table directly to your right point of view once you enter the room. Vault 34 is INCREDIBLY confusing.
If you want the Golden Gloves, look inside the Lucky 38 Casino in The Strip. Look in the Casino upstairs on the left side above the cashier station and look in the top shelf on the left side of the bar table. The Golden Gloves and the Boxing Times magazine will be right there.
Lucky is a unique .357 revolver. It can be found at the Steve Bison place in Primm. It’s behind the cash register in the gift shop, in a safe that is in the floor. The gift shop is the the most North Eastern part of the first floor. You must have a lockpick skill of 75 to open the lock.
This pistol is really easy to get. When you get to meet Caesar (Caesar’s legion) all you need to do is complete a short guest from Caesar and after that you are given a chance to kill Benny. Kill Benny and then loot his corpse. You find this pistol “Maria”, which by the way is the same pistol that Benny used to “kill” you when the game began.
Head to the REPCONN Headquarters (North of REPCONN Facility and Novac). This unique Plasma Rifle (and item that Marvin the Martian always looked for in Looney Tunes) is found on the first floor. The easiest way to obtain this weapon is to make your way to the 3rd floor and find (beside the pile of rubble the B.O.S. patrol is under) the suitcase a skeleton is holding. Open it and remove the security key. Go to the 2nd floor and find its specified door to enter a room with a hole in the floor to find the rifle in the corner in a strange container.
In Freeside, go to The Atomic Wrangler Bar and talk to the female bartender. Ask about getting a room, but instead of paying the 10 caps, ask if you could work out a deal. She will give you a quest in which you have to collect the debt of 3 people throughout Freeside. One the them is named Lady Jane and can be found by the entrance to New Vegas in the day. When you question her about her debt she will say she doesn’t have the money, but a carvan of her’s in a place called Broc Flower Cave does. If your Speech/Barter is high enough you can convince her to cough the money up, but for the sake of the weapon you will want to go to the cave. She will warn you about the Rodents of Unusual Size (A Princess Bride refrence). Once you arrive at the cave go down the path to the right. A dead Brahmin on the left of the irradiated dead end has the money. To the right is a semi-hidden passageway upward to to 2 or 3 R.O.U.Ses and a stockpile of supplies including The Rat Slayer, an unique Varmint Rifle.
Recompance Of The Fallen is a unique weapon found in Cottonwood Cove. It is a pair of brass-knuckles/spike knuckles made of Dog-Tags. It can be found in the desk of the top floor of Aurelius de Phoenix’s office building just inside Cottonwood Cove. It has high damage and diminishes slowly in condition.
This weapon is found at the site of the crashed Vertibird. It can be repaired for 11,000 to 12,000 caps and will do up to 108 damage. When trying to get to the weapon, be wary of the hardened Mister Gutsys and hardened Sentrybots.
That Gun can be found at Novac gift shop on a metal crate. Buy the storage key and you can steal it.
At Nelson, after you get into the base, help the leader with the ant problem. Once your down there, look for two generators. Don’t go to them, but go right to the other side to find a skeleton with the Thump Thump and around 20 or 30 rounds.
Armor or to be precise armors are located near HELIOS 1 . From there head west towards the cliffs. From the cliffs turn left and head to a small canyon, which by the way is full of scorpions, that leads to a “Scorpion gulch”. There you have 2 options up left or up right. Up left is Brotherhood of Steels camp, but we head up right. When you detect small amounts of radiation you are close. Kill a few centaurs that are leaching the radiation and you see a possible meteor crater with large amounts of radiation. At the bottom you see two(2) dead Brotherhood of Steel Paladins who wear T-51b Power Armors. Armors are in pretty bad shape, but after repairing them you own possibly best armor of the game.
The Chinese stealth armor can be found in the Hoover Dam offices. It’s in the room with the toxic barrels and green goop. Once you see the room, turn to your left. You should see a bunch of wooden crates. Inside one of these crates is two sets of Chinese Stealth Armor. Both weigh 20.00. Unfortunately, the invisibility thing the armor does in Fallout 3, is gone now — all it does is give you +5 sneak.
