Okay, pay close attention Cadet Specialist. The Lariat is a custom piece. It'll take a little extra time to get her special payload

prepped and ready to fire. Go through your scrap, and pick out some lengths of string and wire, just the useless bits, of course, then load them in right here, see? Then slide the ammo in here, awkward, I know, but trust me.When you're ready, twist this thing here until you smell burnt hair, but seriously - and this is important - don't keep breathing it in, okay? Then aim and shoot like normal, but be really quick about it, again, because of the smell. What comes out the barrel should fire mostly straight, and once you get the hand of it, it'll tangle up whatever it hits pretty good! Once more, Cadet Specialist, because I can't stress this enough, don't let the smell get into your eyes or lungs.

~ Ethil Mercaptain on how to use the weapon

The Lariat is a tier 3 assault rifle in Wasteland 2.

Description[edit | edit source]

A rifle customized by Ranger R&D Expert Captain Mercaptain, the Lariat is designed to hinder enemies' speed and mobility, rather than filling them with holes. Perfect for catching stray cattle... or immobilizing opponents so somebody else can blast them.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The weapon alerts enemies (generates noise) in a 27 unit radius.

Locations[edit | edit source]

After talking to General Vargas once Damonta has been completed, but before you leave for California, talk to Mercaptain and she will add The Lariat and an Ion Blaster as requisitions.
