Best Unique & Rare Weapons in Fallout 4

Unique / Rare weapons are the strongest, most useful, and generally the best weapons in Fallout 4. They grant the player special bonuses, like making the target stagger more often, or irradiating/poisoning them.
You can get them by killing unique enemies (and looting their bodies), or by finishing quests. This guide will show you the best unique and rare weapons in Fallout 4, where to find them and what they do.

Splattercannon, Acid Soaker, Nuka-Nuke Launcher – Nuka World DLC

The latest Fallout 4 DLC titled Nuka World introduces new legendary weapons. Some of them tie into the amusement park theme, while others are simply bad-ass additions to your arsenal. Splattercannon is an automatic rifle that increases damage after each consecutive hit on the same target, Acid Soaker is a gun that inflicts ongoing acid damage and temporarily reduces damage resistance, Nuka-Nuke Launcher is a warhead launcher. You can check out our guide New Nuka World Unique Weapons, and find out how to get them.

It works in both his super-mutant and human form.

Bonus: Severe enemy knockback.
Location: Lorenzo’s Artifact Gun can be obtained only if you decide to kill Lorenzo in Parsons State Insane Asylum, during the Secret of Cabot House quest. It does physical & radiation damage, and sends enemies flying. It requires Gamma Rounds, which are very rare, so use it sparsely.

Zeta Gun

Type: Gun
Bonus: None
Location: You can get the Zeta Gun while doing the quest The Secret of Cabot House. When you get to the point of choosing whether to kill Lorenzo or not, set him free. After you’ve killed Jack Cabot, loot his body to find this radiation gun. It’s a consolation prize, compared to the one above.

You have to defeat named boss Slag in Power armor (video guide where to find Slag). It’s a long and hard fight. Once you defeat Slag, talk to Jake Finch and start the quest Out of the fire. The quest will send you to Abraham Finch, where you’ll get additional XP and Shishkebab.
Grognak’s Axe
Type: Axe
Bonus: Hit cause more stagger, and targets take bleed damage.
Location: Just north-east of Diamond City look for a Hubris Comics building. When you enter the building look to your left, and you’ll see Grognak’s Axe in a locked glass box. You must have the advanced lockpicking skill in order to obtain Grognak’s Axe.
Furious Power Fist Weapon
Type: Melee Weapon
Bonus: Hit cause more stagger, and targets take bleed damage.
Location: In order to get this Melee weapon you have to defeat a huge boss Swan. Head to the Swan’s Pond, it’s to the right of Diamond City. You’ll find him next to the pond. The whole area has a lot of radioactivity. Since the boss is quite strong use Nuka Grenade and Molotov Cocktails to defeat him faster, or drop down mines and lure him into them.
Gamma Gun
Type: Gun
Bonus: None
Location: You can get Gamma Gun on the bottom left corner of the map in Decayed Reactor Site. You’ll need Power Armor, or a Hazmat Suit in this area. You can get Hazmat Suit in the “Hugo Hole” place, on the right side of the map. Inside the crashed dome look for a corpse and loot it. There is a strong mob inside, lure it out before you loot the bead body.

Kremvh’s Tooth

Type: Knife
Bonus: Targets bleed and are poisoned. Exceptional damage.
Location: This weapon can be found in Dunwich Borers, on the right side of the map, near Hugo’s Hole. This is a high level area, with numerous mobs, thus be careful. It’s pretty tricky to describe the exact location of the weapon because it’s hidden in an underground pond, and the whole area is radioactive, thus, you have to act fast. We suggest you to watch Kremvh’s Tooth video guide first.
Shem Drowne Sword
Type: Sword
Bonus: Targets take radiation damage.
Location: In Diamond City look for Valentine Detective agency. Take the files from the office, that will trigger the quest The Gilded Grasshopper. It’s a long quest, but at the end it takes you to the graveyard where you have to dig up a grave.

      I also am a bit dissapointed as you left out the most POWERFUL weapon in the game” The Last Miniute” It is a variation of the gauss rifle and does 230 damage when fully charged

      1. M
        Micheal

        The last minute is no where near the best weapon in the game. The two shot guass rifle does over 900 damage with the right perks not to mention it shoots an additional projectile meaning it could potentially do 1800 plus damage.

      2. The most powerful weapon is the explosive mini gun and the two shot guass rifle

        1. M
          Me

          I would say almost anything wounding or two shot are the best weapons. Staggering is also really nice

      3. L
        LONEzy

        my Last Minute does 551 dam for one shot. I am trying to find the two shot gauss rifle, cause then i will do 1102 dam pershot. also i can do citicals of about 1377 dam, give or take a bit, so i dont know why its not on this list, if it something to do with ammo avalibility, then think again i have over 1000 rounds for my Last Minute

        1. T
          That guy

          The regular 10mm is the best it does 18 fucking damage! No other gun is anywhere near that amount of damage. I’m surprised it wasn’t on the list.

          1. D
            Doonold Troomp

            Because the Deliverer does more damage.

      4. D
        dude

        hi. i think i have 1 of the best guns. vats enhanced overcharged laser pistol with improved vats hit chance, 25% less ap cost. range 395 (yep 395) dmg 180 fr 50 ac 105. i can kill things in vats that i can’t even see. i have played alot of fallout 4 and this pistol beats all.

      5. H

        The zeta gun info is slightly incorrect. You can get both it and Lorenzos artifact pretty easily. Choose to kill Lorenzo and all doors unlock in Cabot house, and all objects become free (not stolen). The zeta gun is just lying there on a table. Cabot still gives you the artifact after a week of waiting.

  2. K
    Kelsey

    Just by the way on how to obtain the zeta gun you state they only way is to let Lorenzo free, I’m not sure if this is a glitch but before that mission when he told me to find his sister it’s sitting on his desk, but I did not grab it then. After I killed Lorenzo I went back to the house for the artifact gun ( didn’t realize it wanted me to return to the asylum) and it was still laying there so I took it and was not considered stealing.

    1. D
      david

      Ive gone back several times and picked up multiple zeta guns myself, i have 3, seems odd to me

      1. R
        raty

        nothing odd about it, most places will re-spawn enemies and loot after a few days i think places that say “cleared” are 30 in game days and all enemies and new loot will be there so you can farm them for exp ect to keep the game going once completed

    2. G
      GrimReaper2181

      u can be hidden and steal it and it respawns after u kill lorenzo so u can get two zeta guns and artifact gun on this mission if your stealth is good lol

  3. P
    Patrick

    You didn’t list General Chao’s revenge, the sword you can buy from starlight diner or somewhere near there. It’s a Chinese officers sword that does critical damage to robots.

    1. its above gainer and below tinker toms special m8

  4. W
    Wilk

    Gamma Gun isn’t unique weapon sadly. I’ve found 2 of those on Childs of Atom near the race track place. However, as they both were using the Gamma Gun, it was pretty hard to defeat them, so going to the Decayed Reactor is probbably the easiest way.

    1. J
      Jason

      Hazmat suits make you all but immune to the Children of Atom. It’s almost adorable watching them try to hurt you, but you do have to watch out for their regular weapons and grenades.

  5. B
    Brent

    There’s actually a way easier way to get the Gamma Gun, and it can be obtained a lot sooner than this! Whenever you travel to Skylanes Flight 1981 (The crashed airplane) there will typically be two factions fighting it out at the location. Quicksave before fast travelling to the location once you’ve discovered it, and you’ll often see Children of Atom dueling it out with some other group (Gunners, bandits, super mutants, etc.). The Children of Atom utilize the Gamma Gun! Kill these NPCs and you’ll be able to loot their weapon quite early on.

  6. P
    Playbahnosh

    You can get the Zeta Gun for free without killing anyone!
    Actually, it’s sitting on the middle desk in Jack’s lab upstairs from the beginning, but it’s red (stealing). You can try to steal it when no one is looking, but there is a better way: progress the quest, and when Jack tells you to meet him outside to go to the Asylum, everything in the house turns green, so you can just grab the Zeta Gun from the table without it being stealing. (At this point all the locked doors open up too, so make sure to properly ransack the house before heading out, there is a ton of useful stuff around, especially upstairs. Make sure to grab Lorenzo’s journal, it’s sitting on the table in one of the rooms, it’s a good read!)

    Lee Hill

    If you need cannonball ammo for the broadsider, there is plenty of cannon balls just laying around in the armory at “The Castle” which is just east of diamond city on an island. You must complete the Minute Men mission leading up to that place first though.

  8. K
    Kal

    Gamma gun isn’t a unique, nor is the Syringer Rifle (which you have typoed as Syringen Rifle). They are both standard weapons purchasable from vendors throughout the commonwealth.

  9. P
    PepZee

    My top weapon picks for different situations, mostly pre 30 level in rifleman’s perspective. For me. the following rare modifiers made survival difficulty the only viable one to play with.
    All-rounder: Overseer’s Guardian (or any ‘Two Shot’ that you prefer), an easy-to-get weapon. Common bullets. Reflex dot sight – success guaranteed.
    Close-quarters / some narrow corridor fights / run-and-gunning melee armies: ‘Wounding’ (Targets bleed for 25 points of additional damage) combat shotgun causes an instant Class IV Hemorrhage.
    Loooong range: scoped ‘Instigating’ (double dmg to full HP targets) any laser/ballistic/gauss/plasma rifle with preferred mods.

    I take it these weapons don’t always spawn with the same mods on them because my limitless potential spawned as a rifle not a pistol

  12. S
    Sempophai

    The railway rifle spawns at a very easy spot at bedford station, in a blue carriage attached to the engine, a very short distance south of the small tower there. I don’t know why everyone posts the locations as big john’s salvage and a quest line, there are a half dozen low level ghouls here, which you can completely avoid. It’s propped next to a sleeping bag and skeleton, there’s usually one or two spikes for it there as well. I’ve found it there twice, I can only assume it is a fairly common spawn, not sure if level effects it.

  13. I
    I Hate spoilers

    Can you schlubs write an article without spoilers such as, “It’s used be Eddie Winters, who you fight at the end“?

    You get the big boy way easier than that man. Sorry but buying it is really out of the question. I’ll do a write up and send you it but it’s free in robotics disposal ground.

    1. M
      MegaCream

      Thats the fat man. the big boy shoots 2 mini nukes, the fat man shoots 1

      1. L
        LONEzy

        and then you put the MER-V mod on and it shoot 12 for the price of one, but is extremely inefficient

    Billy Anderson

    I have looked all over the interwebs to see if any site has had the Never Ending Shotgun on their list. So far, I have seen none. If you do a quest for the man selling the baseball bats in Diamond City, you’ll encounter a legendary feral ghoul. Kill this bad boy, and you have a double barrel shotgun that never needs a reload. On top of that, if you mod it out to the max you’re looking at 125+ damage per-shot.

    1. M
      Mark Ghannan

      That’s because it’s a generic legendary weapon drop from a legendary enemy. Any weapon dropped by these guys can have the Never Ending prefix and the associated ability.

  16. S
    Steven Ficher

    There is also one assault rifle called “Un-Ending Assault Rifle” or something like that, it has an unlimited ammo capacity which was really useful for me, found in vault 95, filled with Gunners

  17. J
    James

    You can get the reba II by killing the guy. You can also loot his body for the original reba aswel.

  18. A
    ArrowCapt

    You can also get a Sort Syringe Gun in the basement of the Greater Mass Blood Clinic with even having to do a quest but you will have to fight several Bloatflies, Bloodbugs, and eventually the Legendary Bloodbug to retrieve your prize but there is a bonus room with tons of blood bags so it is all worth the trouble in the end. Note: Be wary when approaching the building because someone has decides to litter the grounds with the unholy frag mind. Also if you follow the road going south you will find a set of three large buildings that contain a suit of power armor but be warned, Bloatflies will try to keep you from what is yours so you must act with extreme prejudice toward your enemy.

    1. K
      Kevin

      I killed Clint very early on the game and didn’t get Good Intentions. I went back toe Quincy Ruins and it’s all legendary gunners and didn’t drop the weapons. Also I couldn’t get Virgil’s Rifle. It’s not located on him either.

  19. B
    Benny

    If anyone needs cannon balls, there are a lot of them at the castle which you retake for the minute men

  20. W
    Willz

    You forgot the 2076 World Series Baseball Bat. This can be found in the display on the right side of the treasures exhibit in the Jamaica Plain town hall basement. Its unique feature is it has a small chance of sending the target flying (complete with hilarious sound effect). Modify it with saw blades and you probably have the most fun melee weapon in the game, there is nothing more hilarious than sending a deathclaw or behemoth flying.

  21. G
    Gouldy

    When you start the mission to turn on the turrets in return for Reba 2, kill some time looting and the man usually unlocks his workshop. Simply walk in and Reba 2 is on the table. This makes the rest of the mission much easier

    Do anyone have a problem with the Big John’s Salvage shelter? It’s my second time there, and the generator is still going, but I can’t open the shelter hatch.. And it’s not possible to turn the generator off and then on again..

    Deathclaw Gauntlet isn’t unique; I’ve found three of the darn things.

    Also, Swan isn’t next to the pond, he’s IN the pond. Just don’t do what I did and aggro him with a mini nuke, it won’t do any damage of he’s not out of the water.

    They’ve also fixed the bug to get the cryolator. It doesn’t work anymore.

      The glitch for the cryolator worked for me on xbox, he even got the ammo for it.

    Sick guide. There are a few on here I never found like Gronak’s Ax. That will be a cool one to mod out. Thank you for the tips.

      Lol you cant mod grognacks axe. What you see is what you get.

    Kremvh’s Tooth is actually a machete. You can take off the Sacrificial mod and it turns into a regular machete. It’s a mod, so you could get a legendary machete and put the mod on it. It’s a one time mod, so if you lose your machete, you lose the Sacrificial mod.

    I have a combat shotgun that’s rounds explode on impact for plus 15 damage and the Instigating Rifle that does double damage on the first shot. The rifle does about 140-160 damage first shot with my mods, but the shotgun does about 200 plus shoots like a rifle with mods. I can kill Deathclaws at level 35 in 3 shots.

      Yea, getting a combat shotgun with exploding rounds is one of the baddest guns in the game. It annihilates enemies. As you said death-claws in 3 shots, even Legendary ones don’t stand a Chance. Then upgrade the one you find it on with components from other combat shotguns and it just gets badder and badder. Thing ain’t fair. I got a character up to about level 40 pretty quick. Upping the difficulty some , but not to survivalist, still was easy. Actually put the gun away because it made the game too easy.

    Actually, the overseer’s guardian is useless since it shares the same ammo with a better gun, the spray n pray.

      an upgraded overseers guardian has .308 ammo, that and the fact that is does over 220 damage per shot (with rifleman perk) makes it an extremely OP weapon. even on long range engagements

      Submachine guns-including the spray and pray- are horrible. A fully upgraded sub machine gun and a fully upgraded pipe rifle do the same damage. Also, .38 is much easier to fing and buy then .45. Also the submachine gun weighs and costs a lot more.

        Ordinarily, you’re right about submachine guns. However, you’re wrong about Spray-and-Pray and it all comes down to the simple fact S&P has the explosive modifier.

        15 points of explosive damage doesn’t seem like much, until you realize that the aoe effect of the damage means that a target is receiving 15 points of damage to every limb per bullet (on a human enemy that’s 6×15=90 damage per bullet, not counting the weapon’s standard damage) without needing to actually hit the target directly (shooting the ground at their feet is quite effective). This modifier is also affected by the Demolition expert perk, doubling it’s damage dealt (up to 180 damage per bullet against a human target). And you can add the 15% damage boost from the Explosives Bobblehead as well.

        It’s why S&P is considered one of the most OP guns in Fallout 4. The only way a pipe rifle is better than S&P is if you get lucky and roll one of those with the explosive modifier. Although even that (and S&P) pale in comparison to an explosive shotgun or minigun…

    All the weapons in this game look dumb as f***. As an old school Fallout fan, I remember playing Fallout 1 on pc when I was 13 years old, who as seen the game evolve, they have really screwed the look of the weapons. 95% of the weapons of this game look like hunks of junk. I get the idea that it is post-apocalyptic and that people would jury rig weapons out of make shift material, but quite the opposite would be real as well. Think about it: If the world fell into nuclear chaos due to war, what would be the one thing that would be coveted and kept in good condition? F***ing weapons! Modern weapons, assault rifles, bladed weapons, like katanas would be coveted and kept in good condition. Even the energy weapons look stupid compared to the old Fallout games. It may seem like a silly thing to complain about, but it really is a game breaker for me. I can’t play a game that, from an aesthetic standpoint, has went so far off track from its origins. Look at the weapons in Fallout 1, 2, 3 and New Vegas.

    [SPOILERS] – {SPOILERS}

    i got some special galtling laser while attacking the prydwin for the railroad, i fought my way through the whole thing killing everyone in the main area
    when i returned to the command deck elder maxon was waiting for me with a knight and a scribe by his side.
    i shot them all (looted maxon’s jacket because fuck yea), among the bodies was a special gatling laser wich had 25% extra damage

    i can’t remember how it was called tho, it was one word 😛

    Theres is another unique weapon, altough it has no bonus. General Zao’s Sword is a uniquely named Chinese Officer Sword you get by completing the ‘Here They Be Monsters’ quest and asking for more money to the red point. You get the quest by talking to the kid behind Shamrock Taphouse.

      Trust me, that gun sucks. You there’s hardly any attachments for it, and it looks puny compared to the 10 mm, I swapped it right back the second I tried shooting with it. Don’t worry too much about it.

      1. The deliverer is actully one of the best stealth weapons in the game

      2. D

        Who cares if it looks dumb it’s stronger than the regular 10mm pistol.

    I’m upset that you would think of Wolfgang and his bodyguard as bandits. He’s a legitimate merchant, but happens to have questionable business ethics.

    It’s possible to buy the sword from Trudy even if you don’t murder them.

    You forgot the ‘Wazer Wifle’ it’s a Never-Ending laser rifle you get from Shaun, if you keep bringing him junk (also Sturges can give you an unmoddable automatic laser musket)
