Fallout: New Vegas — How to get a sniper rifle.

Posted by JungleBoot on October 29, 2010

An actual sniper rifle may be obtained from the top bunk in the 1st Recon tent at Camp McCarran (verified for PS3 patched to 1.6).  However, your guns skill will prevent you from using the weapon effectively.  That leaves you with the choice of being a “steady” junkie (which steadies your weapon) or using an alternative at lower levels.  My personal choice is the Ratslayer (a unique varmint rifle modded with a silencer, night scope, and larger clips).  It is found in the Brock Flower cave populated by giant mutated rats.  Don’t worry.  There is a perfect solution for dealing with the infestation — powder charges.  Collect all the powder charges you can find — along with frag mines — and use them to slow down our furry little friends.  Lay them down like bread crumbs behind you.  Be sure to hold a few back to deal with the rats that remain.  Of course, you could always use a stealth boy.  But, where is the fun in that?
