A heavy machine gun developed in 1918 and still in use right up until the outbreak of war.Item description

The Browning M2 is a big gun in Fallout Tactics.


Still in use right up until the war, the Browning M2 was developed in 1918.[1]


Although the Browning M2 has a very high Strength requirement, it is the most damaging and longest ranged machine gun in the game. Only the MEC Gauss minigun exceeds it in firepower, but its ammo is likewise fairly scarce.


  • The M2 first appears during the St. Louis mission, carried by at least two guards in the super mutant fortress in the far north of the map and two guards in the area around it. They have .50 depleted uranium (DU) rounds and can easily kill one's entire squad. One mutant in the entrenchment wields the gun with ordinary rounds in it.
  • Two mutants in a building on the right side of the Jefferson map carry this gun. Unlike the St. Louis mutants, they only have regular .50 rounds and (probably) won't tear a squad apart with a single burst. One mutant with the gun guards the entrance to the tunnel. Another mutant with Browning M2 stands in the center of a callow, near the final objectives.
  • There are several super mutants with this weapon in Kansas City. One of them snipes from the tower (opposite the West gate), others take part in the south gate assault.
  • Sometimes, during random encounters with super mutants, a few of them may carry this gun. Typically they have a small amount of regular .50 rounds for it.
