Automatic Weapons is a weapon class in Wasteland 3 based on Automatic Weapons skill.

Description[]

Automatic Weapons have two subtypes: Assault Rifles and Submachine Guns.

  • Assault rifles are the wasteland all-rounders. Mobile, quick to fire, with decent range, and decent damage. They also penetrate all but the heaviest of armor. Get one for everyone on your Christmas list.
  • SMG: If you’ve got a clear shot (like you’re shooting some punk in the back) an SMG is devastating. They’re not so great against enemies in cover or heavy armor, so you’ve gotta be mobile and pick your targets. But when you do - damn!

Attributes and skill[]

Recommended Attributes: Coordination, Awareness, Speed.

Automatic Weapons skill provides following bonuses:

  • Assault rifle hit chance up to 30% at skill level 10
  • Submachine gun hit chance up to 30% at skill level 10
