The Backwater Rifle is a unique Lever-Action Rifle which is added to Fallout 3 with the Point Lookout add-on.


The Backwater Rifle is found on a shelf behind you at the end of The Velvet Curtain quest along with other weapons and ammo in the room.


  • The Backwater Rifle has been known to turn invisible for a limited time. (Confirmed, 360.)
  • Attacks made from the Backwater Rifle may hit the target, causing the hit body parts to be crippled, but dealing no actual damage.


Backwater Rifle appears in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.

Behind the scenes编辑

  • The name of this rifle is probably a reference to a backwater part of the country. That is, an isolated and backward place, and given the amount of inbred humans one faces in Point Lookout, it can be reasonably said that Point Lookout is a backwater region. Not only this, but Point Lookout is also somewhat of a swampland.
  • This weapon could also be a reference to a rifle that has been "backwatered" which means that if there is a liquid source in the barrel of a rifle, the gunpowder would mix in with the water, making the weapon "useless."
