Patterned off of conventional rifles, the M72 Gauss rifle features a seven stage electromagnetic accelerator mounted onto a standard rifle frame provided with a stock and grip to make handling this powerful weapon easier. Contributing to that is an auto-loading 2mm EC cartridge containing both the 2mm slugs and the battery necessary to power the weapon, large enough to take out most foes with its considerable firepower, hampered only by rarity of its ammunition, necessitating the use of a backup firearm for weaker enemies easily dispatched with more common ammo. It is the German engineering and attention to fine detail that make it a tremendously powerful firearm, with slugs capable of piercing most targets at extreme distances, killing most in just one or two hits. A relative rarity even before the Great War, the M72 is restricted to only the most advanced organizations, such as the Enclave, Brotherhood of Steel and elite New California Republic law enforcement personnel.

- Repair: (Parts DC: 40; Parts Used: 10; Repair DC 25; Time: 10h) A M72 Gauss rifle can be repaired with mechanical parts with a Repair check.
