50 Cal Machine Gun

You'll find the 50 Cal Machine Gun in the northwest portion of the map near Hemlock Holes. Look for a partially buried airplane, once you've found this, there will be a truck nearby that has been turned into a bunker. In the truck's bed, you will find a 50 Cal Machine Gun.

Alien Blaster

You can find the Alien Blaster in the northern part of the map and to the west of the butterfly. It's in a box that can be found in the water in a submerged box. Be careful here, you will take some radiation, so you might want to pop some meds. The Alien Blaster takes AB Rounds, which are specific to the gun.

Black Powder Pistol

If you want a Black Powder Pistol in Fallout 76, head to the Philippi Battlefield Cemetery directly northeast of the butterfly. You'll find a building here that you can enter. Go to the basement/lower floor, and you will see a bunch of display cases. They are all bulletproof, but near the stairs is a red button, and you can press this to open them all. You will find the Black Powder Pistol in one of these cases.

Black Powder Rifle

To find the Rifle version of the Black Powder class of weaponry, you will need to head pretty far east on the map to Harpers Ferry. You'll find a building with display cases, which is very similar to the Black Powder Pistol location listed above. This time, however, all of the cases have been busted, so you won't have to press a button to open them. You can also find a Black Powder Pistol if you haven't gone for the one mentioned above yet.

If you want to find yourself a crossbow, there's one to the east of the butterfly at the Palace of the Winding Path. You don't actually have to go into the building itself, but head into the area through the gate and hang a left. Hug the cement wall until you a target shooting area, there will be a crossbow waiting for you on the table.

Guitar Sword

The Guitar Sword is a melee weapon that is right near where Vault 76 is located. You'll have to traverse some mountainous terrain to get there, but it'll be worth it! You'll find the Guitar Sword propped up next to the chair where there's a hut in this area.

Hunting Rifle

If you are looking for a good long-ranged weapon, then the Hunting Rifle will serve you well. You can find this to the southeast of the Palace of the Wind Path in a mining area. Right outside the mine, you will find the Hunting Rifle sitting up against a bench.

  1. Hey evident, didn’t know you had fallout stuff but am gonna use this more now. Some quick tips, the hunting/sniper rifle you talk about really is a modded hunting rifle, which are stupid common. The plane where the 50 cal is is called a verti bird, which is a vehicle similar to some the US military uses today, just more compact. You can also find a 50 cal on the way to Clarksburg, in a Jeep with a couple sandbags on the road leading into town. The Alien blaster ammo is in the blast ordinance bunkers west of vault 76, there is a guy on this reddit post who tells you how to get it: https://www.reddit.com/r/fo76/comments/9xeszz/alien_blaster_rounds/
    Other than that, pretty good.

  2. Thank you for the locations i now have all the guns thanks to you 👍👌
