That Gun is a unique weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


That Gun is a unique variant of the 5.56mm Pistol. Without the add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal, the weapon has no non-unique variant. That Gun weighs 5 pounds and when reloading, the weapon's cylinder mechanically swings open to the left and auto-ejects the spent casings. The green light on the left side of the gun turns yellow while reloading and then turns green while making a ringing noise once the weapon has reloaded.


That Gun can fire about 1120 standard rounds, the equivalent of 224 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

The weapon is located in Novac, inside the Dino Bite Gift Shop. It can either be purchased from Cliff Briscoe or stolen from the storage room. It is on the end of the first shelf with the Rocket Souvenirs to the right. The storage room key can be pick-pocketed or alternatively the Very Easy lock can be picked. The key may also be purchased during the quest Come Fly With Me or any time after its completion.


  • Along with Lucky, it has the second highest potential critical hit chance multiplier (x2.5) of all one-handed non-energy guns, after the Silenced .22 Pistol.
  • If it is stolen and Cliff Briscoe witnesses the act, he will retrieve it, possibly causing the gun to become unobtainable.
  • Using this weapon against Super Mutants counts towards the Vault 13's Revenge challenge.
  • Using this weapon against robots counts towards the Benefit Or a Hazard challenge.
  • The Vault Boy icon differs from the 5.56mm Pistol's icon.
  • That Gun is difficult to repair, as outside of the perk Jury Rigging, no other weapons are in its repair list apart from the Gun Runners' Arsenal 5.56mm Pistol, which can only be found at vendors. This means that the only ways to repair That Gun without the add-on or perk are vendors with item repair abilities or Weapon Repair Kits.

Behind the scenes

According to Joshua Sawyer. That Gun is a reference to Blade Runner, and its name is derived from the fact that many players referred to the .223 pistol as "That Gun" in Fallout and Fallout 2.[Dev 1]

  • PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 If loading a saved game from the main menu in which That Gun is equipped and drawn, the reload animation takes twice as long as normal. This can be solved by simply switching to another gun and then back again.

One's head can even be moved backwards, to the point of seeing the viewmodel hands.
