The 3 is a tier 6 machine gun in Wasteland 2.

Description[edit | edit source]

No idea what happened to "The 1" or "The 2" but you don't need 'em. "The 3" is all the machine gun you'll ever need - times three!

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

One of the most powerful heavy weapons in the entire game (and definitely with the longest, baddest bursts). This weapon has an exceptionally high critical hit damage multiplier (x15), making a good combo with Combat Shooting skill - this will make the game's finale a breeze to walk through, being able to score over 500 damage in a single burst. It's up to the player whether to use this 'legal cheat' or not - but even without it, The 3 is still a very, very powerful minigun that redeems the whole class of heavy weapons.

The weapon alerts enemies (generates noise) in a 36 unit radius.
