This guide will help you unlock the full-health, sneak Vats Rifleman weapon. This is a reward for completing all missions in the “Captain Scarlett” DLC in Fallout 76.
The “fo76 sniper build 2021” is a full-health, sneak Vats Rifleman Weapon that was released on the PC. The guide is available for download and will show you how to build your own rifle.
I’ve seen a lot of people ask, “What is the best’sniper’ in the game?” so I decided I’d develop this “guide” to answer that question (note the quotes). I attempted to arrange everything as best I could, but I’m sure I missed something, so please feel free to add information in the comments.
Keep in mind that the following is geared for individuals who want to use a Rifle Gauss as their primary weapon, although anybody interested in Rifleman weaponry will hopefully profit from it. It’s also more concerned with a Rifleman’s day-to-day living than with how to solo Scorched Earth and Colossal Problem. If you want to witness a Rifleman construct in action, check out this video.

A Rifleman, in my view, should have at least two weapons, but depending on how you play, you may want more (or fewer). So, here are the categories before I begin:
- Sniper Rifle for Everyday Use: This rifle is a high-powered, slow-firing weapon. The concept is that you one-shot practically everything and only utilize it in instances when you have no chance of being overrun (e.g. clearing West Tek, but really, it will be used in 85 percent of situations). You’ll probably need at least one extra gun if you run one of them. Examples:
- Rifle Gauss
- Rifle for hunting with a prime receiver
- Crowd Control: This rifle is a medium-powered weapon capable of killing medium-difficulty creatures (such as humanoids) in a single shot. If you don’t feel the need to one-shot most foes, the Lever Gun may really operate as a daily sniper. You may employ them in a variety of circumstances, including Distant Thunder and Daily Ops Uplink (esp. humanoid creatures, probably not Super Mutants).
- Gun with a Lever (not ideal for Uplink)
- Gauss Pistol (Gauss Pistol)
- Two Shot/Explosive or Anti-Armor The Troubleshooter
- Quad Rifle Gauss
- Boss-specific gun: Because bosses despise critical hits, the greater the DPS, the quicker you can acquire those criticals.
- Handmade vs. Fixer
- Anti-Armor/50% Critical Damage Rifle Gauss
- Daily Ops Uplink Gun: Since a hushed weapon isn’t beneficial, you may as well utilize a strong non-silenced weapon.
- Shotgun Gauss
- Rifle for the Railways
Loadouts that have been used in the past:
(To keep things simple, I only include legendary effects if they are absolutely necessary to make it a possibility.)
- I adore the Gauss and I adore high damage:
- Daily: Rifle Gauss
- Mob: Quad Rifle Gauss or Gauss Pistol (Gauss Pistol) or Lever Gun (in that order)
- Boss: Anti-Armor Rifle Gauss or Anti-Armor The Fixer (or Handmade)
- Even if you despise the Gauss, you still want a lot of damage:
- Hunting Rifle (with Prime Receiver) on a daily basis
- Mob: The Fixer or The Lever Gun?
- Anti-Armor The Fixer is the boss (or Handmade)
- Daily Ops: Rifle for the Railways or Anti-Armor/Explosive The Fixer or Two Shot/Explosive The Fixer
- Love utility but don’t want to deal with a large number of guns:
- Lever Gun (Daily)
- Lever Gun Mob
- Anti-Armor The Fixer is the boss.
- I just want one gun.
- Stage 1: I have nothing and only have a few modifications unlocked.
- Stage 2: Initial improvements
- Prime Receiver for Hunting Rifle or BOS Recon Rifle: The prime receiver gives a significant damage boost by changing the basic damage rather than adding to it. This implies that instead of 70 damage, every damage boost you get will be based on 98 damage. It’s a Good Sniper, Horrible Crowd Control, and below average versus bosses with a prime receiver.
- To augment it, use a fixer/handmade. For weaker mobs that may/will overwhelm you with a slow-firing hunting rifle, the Fixer/Handmade is required. Fixer/Handmade has a below-average sharpshooter rating, excellent crowd management, and slightly above-average boss fighting abilities.
- If you have a lever gun, you’ll be at least somewhat good in any circumstance. Good sniper. Exceptional crowd management. When it comes to bosses, I’m below average. Before the end-game, the Lever Gun is definitely the greatest weapon to go for.
- Rifle Gauss: if you are looking for max damage, the Rifle Gauss will be your end goal.
- Obtaining Legendary Weapons (Stage 3) (for your Daily Use Sniper)
- First Star: Anti-Armor, Instigating, 50% Bonus Weapons (if you don’t have anything else, don’t sleep on Nocturnal). The purpose of your daily-use sniper is to instigate. You’ll probably get more out of an Anti-Armor or 50 percent bonus weapon until you have an optimal build. (see below for a more detailed explanation)
- Second Star: Explosive, 50 percent Bonus Critical Damage, 50 percent Vats Hit Chance (VHC). VHC is very critical for snipers. You’re placing yourself at risk of getting swamped if you miss your initial shot. I was hesitant when someone offered this to me years ago, but after using it, I would never run a Sniper without it. The other two are acceptable, but the aim is to take down the adversary in one shot without taking critical damage.
- Stage 4: The Final Act
Explanations for End-Game Weapons:
Explanation of Weapons:
- Rifle Gauss: this gun will be used for your long-range targets that you have time to kill. When charged, it will one-shot level 100 Super Mutants (even without stealth) and can take down a Super Mutant Behemoth in 3 shots. Because it needs to charge up, it shoots a little slower, and when you start to get swarmed, you will probably want to swap to something different, especially because of the small clip. The ammo is very heavy, so unfortunately, you will probably need to invest in Batteries Included. It also gets a damage boost from Demolition Expert, but since it does so much damage, it isn’t essential to take those perks. In my opinion, the Rifle Gauss is the best sniper in the game. Recommended Legendary Effects:
- Instigating: if the creature dies in 2 or fewer bullets, Instigating makes the most sense. Instigating will allow you to one-hit most targets, and even if it takes two bullets, you are still even in damage with a +50% damage prefix. For example, a Deathclaw dies in one shot to Instigating but dies in two shots to Anti-Armor. As another example, an I Rifle Gauss can one-shot a level 60 and 75 Super Mutant with a chest shot and can one-shot a level 100 Super Mutant with a shot to the head in Daily Ops Uplink; Anti-Armor cannot. The downside (which rarely happens in my experiences) is if the target is already hurt, which takes away the bonus. Usually, though, if it is your own splash damage, the creature is now under the effects of tenderizer and follow through, which means the creature is probably going to die in one hit anyway. Even if it does take two bullets because of splash damage, in the Deathclaw example, both legendary effects are still going to kill in two-hits.
- Anti-Armor or Aristocrat’s (or any other +50% damage): more general in use since the target isn’t wounded, but they take away your ability to one-shot certain creatures, which I don’t think is desirable if your objective is to kill creatures quickly. Plus, if it’s going to take more than three shots to kill the beast, you’ll probably want to swap guns anyhow. For most boss battles, Anti-Armor is the way to go.
- Two-Shot: Because it does explosive damage, Two-Shot is more damaging than Anti-Armor and Aristocrat’s, for example. The issue is that you’re losing precision and your weapon is deteriorating. It is very important, in my view, for the second star to have a 50% Vats hit probability for this to be effective. In terms of damage, it quickly drops off the map after you reach the bosses.
- Quad: if you are going to carry a second Rifle Gauss or if you aren’t looking for max damage, Quad is amazing. Quad will turn the Rifle Gauss into a mob-control weapon and will allow you to be decent in 95% of the situations you are in.
- 50 Vats Hit Chance (2nd star): You’re placing yourself in a difficult predicament if you don’t hit your shots with a little clip. You’ll essentially never miss with 50VHC.
- 50% Critical Damage: used for bosses. Creatures already die in one bullet to a Rifle Gauss, so having the extra damage at the cost of possibly missing the first shot really isn’t ideal.
- 15 percent faster reload (3rd star): none of the other third effects will provide you with any useful results, therefore I’ll go with this one. Of course, choose the effect that best suits your playstyle.
- Lever-Gun: this gun can two-shot level 75 Super Mutants, and one-shot anything equal to or weaker than a level 50 Super Mutant. When adrenaline kicks in, it can one-shot level 75 Super Mutants. In my opinion, for a player just starting this build, this gun will be more useful in more applications than the Rifle Gauss just because of its effective faster fire rate and the fact that ammo doesn’t weigh a ton. For an end-game player using a Rifle Gauss as a daily sniper, the reason to carry this gun is for events like Distant Thunder where you could be overrun by enemies if you don’t kill them fast enough. With a head-shot and the right legendary effect, it will kill almost any humanoid figure in the game in one-shot. This gun is much more universal than the Rifle Gauss, as it will work in almost every application while the Rifle Gauss is definitely more for picking off targets from a distance that aren’t going to swarm you. Recommended Legendary Effects:
- Instigating: Instigating is necessary if you want to regularly one-shot lower-tiered humanoid foes, which is what you’ll be doing after you finish the build. Where Anti-Armor cannot, Instigating will one-shot a level 50 Super Mutant, a level 60/75 Human, and a level 100 Scorched.
- Anti-Armor or Aristocrat’s (or any other +50% damage): As with Rifle Gauss, it is a little more universal, but for what you should be using the gun for, you are getting more bang for your buck with Instigating. If you do not have a fully optimized build yet, and if creatures are taking you three or more bullets to kill, these effects will probably be better. If you plan to rock this as your only gun (which is doable), Anti-Armor is probably the way you want to go.
- 50 Vats Hit Chance (2nd star)/15% Faster Reload (3rd star): same as Rifle Gauss. Explosive is an option, but losing the accuracy usually makes things take more bullets to kill, which is less of an issue on a Lever Gun because of the one-bullet reload.
- Critical Damage of 50% is utilized for bosses or in certain situations in the field.
- Gauss Pistol (Gauss Pistol): as an alternative to the Lever Gun or Quad Rifle Gauss, the Gauss Pistol (Gauss Pistol), with no dedicated perks other than demolition expert (and probably even without it), does more damage than the Lever Gun with all dedicated perks. As such, and if you are using the Rifle Gauss as your main, it becomes an interested side-arm to replace the function of the lever-gun. If you don’t like the charge mechanic, the Lever Gun will still be your gun for crowd control, but the massive 27 round clip makes crowed control a breeze. Splash damage can be a very small issue, but in the end, the Gauss Pistol (Gauss Pistol) replaced my Lever Gun in most applications until I got a Quad Rifle Gauss. The range and accuracy is not as good as the Lever-gun, so keep that in mind as well. Recommended Legendary Effects:
- Anti-Armor or Aristocrat’s (or any other +50% damage): Anti-Armor is definitely the way to go since it has less problems one-shotting soft creatures than the Lever-gun and you’re using it for crowd control where splash damage is a concern. It also doesn’t work well with Instigating, in my experience.
- 50 Vats Hit Chance (2nd star)/15% Faster Reload (3rd star): same as Rifle Gauss, but probably more important because the Gauss Pistol (Gauss Pistol) does not have great accuracy at range.
- The Fixer: This weapon may assist you in taking down large foes more quickly. If you have demolition expert and an explosive version of this, you’ll be able to dispatch Daily Ops bosses in a matter of minutes while also wreaking havoc on the Imposter Sheepquatch. Even if you don’t have the explosive version, if you overuse the critical hit button, you’ll be OK. Legendary Effects Recommendations:
- When you use a Fixer, you’re accepting that you’ll probably need more than three shots to take down the target, whether it’s Anti-Armor or Aristocrat’s (or any other +50% damage). Every bullet will aid you if you get the additional damage boost.
- Two Shot/Explosive: only because of the grenadier’s tremendous splash damage is it superior for crowd control than Anti-Armor. Certainly not a boss weapon.
- Both Explosive and 25% Faster Fire Rate (both 2nd stars) improve DPS. Explosive delivers higher DPS, but it also makes the gun less precise, causes it to crack quicker, and there’s a risk you’ll be harmed or killed by splash damage.
- Bonus Critical Damage of 50% (2nd star): more effective against bosses than Explosive or Faster Fire Rate.
- Less VATS Cost/Faster Reload (both 3 stars): running out of VATS is inconvenient, and reloading is inconvenient. VATS is definitely less expensive, but it all depends on whether you’re utilizing it for crowd control or on bosses.
- Hunting Rifle (for a sniper): fires slower than the Lever Gun and the Rifle Gauss and doesn’t have the benefit of cheating the reload by loading only one bullet at a time. It does do more damage than a Lever Gun because for some reason (probably unintentionally), the prime receiver changes the base damage rather than giving an additive bonus like every other receiver. What this means is that every buff have will give you a bigger bonus than with any other receiver. With an Instigating version of the Hunting Rifle, you can one-shot a level 100 Super Mutant (Anti-Armor cannot, even with explosive being the second star). The only reason, in my opinion, to use it over a Rifle Gauss is if you dislike the Rifle Gauss mechanics. If you choose it as your main gun, you will almost definitely need a second gun for Uplink, bosses, and trash mobs, whereas although it could be uncomfortable at times, you could make all of those work with a Rifle Gauss.
- Handmade/Combat Rifle (for Fixer): less damage, a bit heavier, and no sneak benefits. A Handmade, according to my understanding, has a lot simpler to control recoil pattern.
- Railway (for Fixer/Lever): strikes harder than the Lever, but it is unstoppable. Useful for Uplink Daily Ops or any other circumstance when stealth is impossible. The cannon is hefty, as is the ammunition.
